Police Friday said dental records were used to make positive identification of Janet Moore. She lived just yards away from where her remains were found.
Moore disappeared in March, 2003. The circumstances surrounding her death are still under investigation. No cause of death has been determined.
A man cleaning under his porch at thousand Oaks mobile home park discovered the remains Wednesday.
Moore's sister, Donna Comboy of Tucson, Arizona says news of the discovery brings closure to their family. She says her sister had a mental illness and wasn't always a happy person, but is now in a better place.
