The discovery of a woman's body in the US has brought an end to a mysterious life of disappearances, unknown phone numbers, strange men and abandoned cars.
The remains of Amanda Hanover, 38, were found on Saturday 23rd March, not far from the shore of the frosty waters of Lake Michigan – more than 320 kilometres from where she was last seen five days earlier.
An autopsy was conducted on Monday, with further toxicology testing pending, but so far the cause of death remains unclear. There is no indication of foul play.
Investigators have confirmed the mother-of-two had a history of disappearances.
On June, 6th 2018, Hanover disappeared from her home near Phoenix, Arizona. A month later police found her car in the parking lot of the University of Calgary in Canada, and Hanover was found in a distressed state trying to flag down motorists.
She was carrying two train tickets, including one with the name of an unidentified man. She also had a note with three phone numbers on it, including one that belonged to her uncle, who helped investigators identify her. She also told officers that she couldn’t remember her name.
