‘Nearly-complete skeleton’ discovered on golf course identified as woman who mysteriously vanished in 2015 – The Sun
THE 'nearly complete skeleton' of a 35-year-old woman who vanished in 2015 have been found on South Dakota golf course.
Malinder Adler's almost completely intact remains were found along Rapid Creek on March 31, five years after she disappeared.
Adler was last seen at her home in June 2015 and based on evidence found in her home police did not suspect foul play at the time.
Rapid City PD confirmed her identity after matching her dental records.
Police spokesperson Brendyn Medina described Adler’s remains as a nearly-complete skeleton and disclosed that she was discovered on Elks Golf Course according to the Rapid City Journal.
Medina said detectives assessed missing person cases and zeroed in on Adler after noticing her teeth looked similar to the unidentified skeleton.
Adler reportedly had a history of mental illness, drug abuse, and attempted suicide, however police didn’t notify the public when she disappeared in 2015.
She was last seen by a friend on May 31, 2015. The friend reported visiting Ader at her residence at 815 New York Street.
Adler's family checked her home in the days after, with nothing appearing out of place.
Police followed a variety of leads in the case, none of which pointed to any suspicious activity in her disappearance.
The RCPD spokesperson said he believes an alert wasn’t issued because Adler’s relatives indicated that she had a history of vanishing and returning.
The police department also believed Adler’s disappearance was related to her mental health.
Authorities said her cause of death is undetermined as of yet.
Evidence related to the case has been sent to labs all over the country.
This remains an active, ongoing unattended death investigation being conducted in partnership with the Pennington County Sheriff’s Office.
