LISBON, Maine (AP) — The Maine medical examiner says a body found in a wooded area in Lisbon last week is that of a Lewiston woman who went missing during the summer of 2011.
The medical examiner’s office says DNA has confirmed the body was that of 22-year-old Christiana Fesmire.
Spokesman Mark Belserene told the Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/UfBXaQ ) that the cause and manner of death were ‘‘homicidal violence’’ with facial fractures.
The body was found just weeks after 31-year-old Buddy Robinson of Lewiston was convicted of murder in her death, even though her body had not been found at the time of the trial.
Robinson and Fesmire lived in different units of the same apartment house when she disappeared in July 2011. Robinson awaits sentencing.
