After being reported missing for almost a year, the remains of United Airlines Executive Jake Cefolia have been conclusively identified by the DuPage County coroner.
Cefolia’s bones were discovered in the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve in Lemont, Illinois, roughly 25 miles outside of Chicago, according to a press release published Sunday.
Authorities were able to clearly identify Cefolia, who was 50 years old, according to dental records, albeit the reason and manner of her death are still unknown. There were no signs of foul play, according to DuPage Forest Preserve Police Chief David Pederson, and the case is being investigated as part of an ongoing death investigation.
Cefolia was discovered hanging from a tree by a belt, according to Pederson. Cefolia’s wallet, driver’s license, and a backpack containing personal items were also discovered at the scene, according to authorities.
According to a news release from the DuPage Forest Preserve District Police, they were summoned to the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve on Friday after contractors discovered what appeared to be human remains.
Workers were eradicating invasive species in the area when they discovered “human remains hanging from a low hanging tree,” Pederson told NBC 5 Chicago.
“The human remains were located in a very thick covered brush area, extremely, so you can be 10 feet away and not see it,” said Pederson. “Obviously the foliage is starting to drop this time of year, these contractors were working in a very thick area…”
