Identity Linked in Missing Woman Case

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. - Rapides Parish Sheriff William Earl Hilton announced Monday that investigators have positively identified the remains found in the woods in LaSalle Parish as that of Dorothy Eyvonne Rosier. 

Rosier went missing almost three years ago on Jan. 11, 2010.  Hunters near Trout, La. in LaSalle Parish, discovered the remains on Nov. 21.

According to reports from the sheriff's office, this presumptive identification was made based on dental records. Preliminary results were leading investigators to believe that the remains may be the missing woman. 

Positive identification was not received until last week with assistance of the Louisiana Repository for Unidentified and Missing People FACES Lab. 

Authorities say based on these findings, investigators conclude that the remains are those of Rosier, 25, at the time of her disappearance.

The Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office, along with the LaSalle Parish Sheriff's Office, will continue a joint investigation into this homicide and how the remains got into the woods at that location, who might have put them there and the events surrounding the death of Rosier. 

At this time, detectives would not speculate on any suspects or cause of death as this might hinder their investigation. 

"This family needs closure to what happened to their daughter, their sister, their mother. We have been working diligently on this case since we came into office and we are looking into other unsolved cold cases," Hilton said. "This is the one we need help on now.  Someone knows something and we want you to do the right thing and come forward, so this family will not have to spend another Christmas knowing the suspect in Dorothy's murder is still out there," he also said.

Anyone having information on the disappearance of Dorothy Eyvonne Rosier in January 2010 is urged to contact the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office or the LaSalle Parish Sheriff's Office.
