Remains recovered from landfill that of missing woman in Moorhead

MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in western Minnesota say remains recovered from a landfill have been identified as those of a missing 19-year-old woman who prosecutors say was killed and dismembered. Moorhead police said Monday the Ramsey County medical examiner’s office positively identified the remains discovered last week as those of Dystynee Avery.

Twenty-seven-year-old Ethan Broad was charged last week with second-degree murder without intent while committing a felony in Avery’s death. Two people were arrested last week on accessory to murder charges, and police said Monday a 33-year-old West Fargo, North Dakota, man also was taken into custody on accessory to murder charges.
