Remains of woman killed 65 years ago identified

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The remains of a woman killed 65 years ago and dumped in the California desert have been identified.

The San Bernardino County coroner’s office says a family DNA match shows the bones found scattered in the Mojave Desert near Baker in 1971 are those of Betty Walraven, an Orange County woman killed in May 1946.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/qvKwtG ) reports Santa Ana police notified San Bernardino investigators in 1975 that a suspect confessed to killing Walraven, also known as Betty Fleming, that year and dumping her body in the desert.

The name of the suspect and details about the killing haven’t been released.

The coroner’s office says in a news release that a DNA profile worked up by the state justice department lab in Richmond helped investigators make the identification.
