COEYMANS HOLLOW, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Remains found last week in rural Albany County have been positively identified as belonging to a missing 23 year old from Schenectady.
At the time, Fabian said it didn’t seem danger was on their mind.
“Because in their eyes, it was like a runaway situation; that she just didn’t want to go back home,” he said.
McKenna said upwards of 50 state police recruits did a grid search around the area Countermine’s body was found.
“If any other items, articles could be located,” he explained.
“There’s a lot of pieces to the puzzle, which seem very, as you said, alarming,” he said. “I mean, we have someone buried in a shallow grave. That’s out of the ordinary.”
McKenna said his investigators are talking to those who were in Countermine’s life prior to her disappearance.
