OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says the dismembered remains of a woman found in central Oklahoma in 1995 have been identified.

The OSBI said on Friday that the remains found in Caddo County are those of Katrina Bentivegna of Midwest City. Bentivegna’s DNA that was submitted for testing in 2021 was recently matched to her relatives.

Bentivegna was 20 when her remains were found in April 1995 with her head, hands, and feet removed. A skull found in 1996 was later matched to the remains. A suspected cause of death was not announced.
