Remains found along Big Sioux River identified

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Authorities have identified the remains of a woman found earlier this week along the Big Sioux River.

The Sioux Falls Police Department says the woman has been identified as 27-year-old Leah Anne Brosky, who was reported missing on May 13.

The Minnehaha County coroner used dental records to identify Brosky.

Two people fishing on the bank of the river found her remains Wednesday night in an area north of the Farmer’s Market in Falls Park.

Police say the remains were in an advanced state of decomposition. The cause of death is undetermined, but authorities say foul play is not suspected and there is no evidence of trauma.
