Skull, Teeth Identified As Puyallup Girl's


Remains found in an area east of Enumclaw have been identified as those of Anna Chebetnoi, a 14-year-old Puyallup girl missing for more than a year.

The King County Medical Examiner's Office made the identification through dental records Friday.

A medical investigator said the cause and manner of death still are under investigation.

Searchers found more bones yesterday in the area where Chebetnoi's skull and teeth were found, but it was not believed they were human.

Authorities said Chebetnoi was reported missing in August 1990.

The remains were found Tuesday about five miles east of town and about one mile off Highway 410 toward Mount Rainier.

On Sept. 11, pine-cone collectors found the skeleton of a woman about 10 miles east of Enumclaw. She has not been identified.

The skeletal remains of Marta Reeves of Seattle were found about eight miles east of Enumclaw a year ago, and three years ago the body of Kimberly Ann DeLange, 15, of Sumner, was found in a wooded area near where Chebetnoi's skull was discovered.

Neither case has been solved.

Authorities are trying to determine if the remains are related to the case of the Green River killer, who is believed to have murdered 49 women between 1982 and 1984. Remains of 41 women have been found.

Authorities note that the killer regularly left victims in groups, and three of his victims were found east of Enumclaw along
