LA PORTE COUNTY, IN – A woman reported missing from Marion last year has been found dead in Indiana.

According to a release from the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office in Indiana, human remains were found by a farmer in rural Springfield, Indiana October 28 of last year. In December the remains were determined to be those of 46-year-old Larua Wolfe and her death was ruled a homicide by the La Porte County Coroner’s Office.

Over the course of an investigation, 39-year-old Lynn Ware Jr. of Martin Tennessee had been considered a person of interest, and enough evidence was found to grant a probable cause warrant, leading to Ware’s arrest in O’Fallon, IL on New Year’s Eve.

Ware is being transported to the La Porte Co. jail. The investigation into Wolfe’s death is ongoing.
