State Police Find Remains of Susan Bachman

susanROSE TWP., Pa. (EYT) –Dubois-based State Police say they have found the remains of a woman who went missing after jumping from a moving vehicle on Interstate 80 last July.

On July 4, 2014, at 8:19 a.m. Susan Louise Bachman, 37, of Centre County, was being driven to the Clarion Psychiatric Center by her father and mother for a mental health evaluation.

At mile marker 77.6 on Interstate 80 Westbound, Rose Township, Jefferson County, Bachman jumped from the moving vehicle onto the berm of Interstate 80. She then fled into the woods. Investigative and search efforts, at that time, yielded physical evidence belonging to Bachman, but police were unable to locate her at that time.

New evidence was found recently in the area where Bachman had fled into the woods.

On April 15, State Police Troopers converged on this area to prepare for a cadaver dog search that was scheduled for April 20. During this preliminary search, human remains were discovered that were identified as those of Susan Bachman.

Police say this is a continuing investigation that will prevent any further comments from being made at this time.

Dr. Dennis C. Dirkmaat, Director of The Applied Forensic Sciences Department at Mercyhurst College, and 20 members of The Masters of Forensic & Biological Anthropology Program assisted at the scene.
