DNA testing has confirmed human remains found in February in the Winterhaven area are those of 5-year-old Angel Hart, killed in 1993.
County Coroner Investigator Gary Hayes revealed today the results of the DNA testing he had sought to confirm the identity of the remains.
Since visitors in Winterhaven found the remains, authorities had treated them as if they were those of Angel, who was killed in Kansas City, Mo., because she could not recite her alphabet.
The story of her death is grisly.
Authorities think Angel was killed Feb. 24, 1993. She was living with her mother, Angela Melton, four other siblings, and her mother's boyfriend, Gary Christian.
