Remains Of Minnesota Woman Finally Identified

Minnesota Bureau of Criminal ApprehensionST. PAUL (AP) – The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension has made its first identification of previously unidentified remains as part of a statewide project.

The remains of Pearline Roberta Walton were identified using a sample relatives provided earlier this year.

Walton was last seen in Minneapolis in the summer of 1993. She was 22 years old.

A hunter found the Minneapolis woman’s remains in Dresser, Wis., in November 1993. It’s believed she was murdered.

Polk County, Wis., Sheriff Pete Johnson says identifying Walton’s remains is a “very important step” in the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
