Police: Found remains identified as missing mother

IDAHO FALLS — Idaho Falls police say remains found in the Ammon foothills in April belong to Stephanie Ann Eldredge, a mother of three missing since Aug. 20, 2007.

Nearly three years exposed to elements left her body badly decomposed when it was discovered April 23 by a wind turbine repairman.

Still, agents say evidence found at the scene — near a popular eastern Idaho hiking trail — points to homicide.

Eldredge, just 21 when she went missing, was identified using dental records.

Sergeant Phil Grimes of the Idaho Falls Police Department says his agency has a person of interest in its investigation, and is looking into several other people, too.

Police say the person of interest was an acquaintance of Eldredge.

When she disappeared, Eldredge’s car was found at her home, as was her four-month-old daughter.
