Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan and Lt. Mike Smith met with the media to share an update on what has been known as the “Miss Molly” murder case. The body of the unidentified woman was exhumed Monday morning from her grave in Gypsum Hill Cemetery and the FBI collected DNA evidence before she was reburied .
The woman was found dead in January of 1986 underneath the Mulberry Creek bridge on I-70 west of Salina. Sheriff Soldan said earlier this year the FBI was contacted by Interpol to see if DNA evidence could connect the woman back to a missing person report that had been looked out before.
Soldan said it will be 6 to 8 months before results of the test will be able to determine if she is the missing woman from Europe.
