Skeletal Remains Found in Woods Identified

Cynthia Leflore

Lauderdale County, Miss. Authorities say they have identified the skeletal remains of a woman found last week deep in the woods off Old Highway 19 SE. A timber crew made the discovery Feb. 7.

Officials say tests verified the woman was Cynthia Leflore, who went missing last year.

Leflore had not been seen by her family since July 18, 2013.

Officials had asked for her disappearance to be publicized two separate times last year. A few leads surfaced but none had led to any helpful information.
