Human remains were found related to the search of 18 year old Linda Stoltzfoos. Stoltzfoos was last seen June 21, 2020 while walking home from church; She has been missing for 10 months. Justo Smoker, 35, was accused of kidnapping last summer, and then in december he was accused of criminal homicide. Smoker is being held without bail. The remains were found in a rural area in the eastern part of the county. The coroner will be identifying the remains and finding out the cause of death. The family was notified and they are said to still be processing the information. After Stoltzfoos went missing last year, there was no reason to believe she wanted to run away or take a trip, and doing so would be very out of character. Authorities found clothing that presumably belonged to Stoltzfoos, which were found in July, buried in the woods. Smoker truck was seen parked at the location two days after she went missing.
