Authorities release name of woman found dead in Dedham

Susan Anyanwu-Corbin.

DEDHAM, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have identified the skeletal remains found in a wooded area of suburban Boston last week and now they’re trying to figure how what happened to the woman.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey on Monday said the remains found in Dedham last week are those of 22-year-old Susan Anyanwu-Corbin.

Morrissey says it’s too early to determine how Anyanwu-Corbin died or whether she was the victim of foul play, but he is asking anyone who knew her to come forward.

He says she had come to the U.S. from Nigeria and it appears she had been missing since February 2016.


Her last known address was in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood.

When her body was found, authorities say she was wearing a Marist College sweatshirt, Atmosphere brand sweatpants and distinctive jewelry.
