DNA Helps ID Remains Found 20 Year Ago As Missing Woman

After 20 years, DNA testing has confirmed that human remains found in Richmond, Virginia in 1992 belong to a missing Johnston County woman.

Angie Toler was supposed to move from Princeton to Richmond with her boyfriend to start a new life. But the boyfriend returned without her and for two decades her family never knew what happened.

Now, DNA testing with the help of the North Carolina Center for Missing Persons and a national database of missing people, has identified remains found near those Richmond railroad tracks as that of Toler.

It turns out a supervisor for the NC Center for Missing Persons happened to recognize a picture during a presentation by the Virgina Medical Examiner's Office. That led to the DNA testing with the victim's mother and sister. Those results came back Tuesday.

Authorities have not yet said if they believe foul play is suspected in Toler's 1992 death.
