Woman’s body found near Laramie in 2010 ID’d

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 55-year-old woman whose body was found by a sheepherder north of Laramie in 2010.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (http://bit.ly/ShD5gW ) the Albany County Sheriff’s Office this week identified the remains as those of Rosella Lovell, who was a janitor at The University of Wyoming.

Detective Cpl. William Meyer says tips began coming in early October right after a story in the Boomerang outlined efforts to identify the woman. Lovell was identified through dental records Oct. 4.

Meyer says the cause and circumstances of her death remain unclear, but an autopsy didn’t reveal any trauma.

Authorities haven’t found any local family, and it’s believed Lovell graduated high school in Idaho and lived in Greeley, Colo., for about 10 years before moving to Laramie.
