MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Milwaukee Police say fragments found in an underground fallout shelter are not human remains. But the medical examiner’s office says an anthropologist will make the final decision, after getting a good look at the items.
The mother of 23-year-old Becky Marzo claims that her daughter’s late ex-boyfriend Carl Rodgers killed her, and buried her in the fallout shelter outside the Milwaukee home where both used to live. The mother, Karren Kraemer of Oconomowoc, had an excavation firm dig up the shelter Tuesday – and apparent fragments of bone, hair, and teeth were found.
But Milwaukee Police spokeswoman Anne Schwartz said her department analyzed the items, and they were not consistent with human remains. Marzo was last seen in 2003, and Rodgers killed himself 4 years later – denying to the end that he killed his ex-girlfriend. But Marzo’s mother remains convinced that Rodgers did it – and she’s been trying to find the proof ever since.
