The body of 18-year-old Naomi Irene was found Tuesday in a remote part of Nevada, more than two weeks after the woman died. He was abducted outside Reno.
Sheriffs followed up with a tip regarding the woman’s disappearance, which led them to a cemetery where a body was found in Churchill County, officials said.
On Wednesday, the Churchill County Sheriff’s Office said the human remains were “confirmed to belong to Naomi Irene” and an investigation is underway.
Troy Driver41 Irene was released on $ 750,000 bail on March 12 while waiting for his work spacecraft at the Panasonic factory in the Walmart parking lot.
Before he got on Irene’s 1992 Mercury Chapel and drove away, he was caught on surveillance footage where he was walking nervously. The vehicle was later found in the industrial park.
The driver was sentenced to 15 years in prison in connection with a 1997 murder in California.
He did not file a petition regarding the abduction.
