Officials: Human remains were those of missing woman | Boston …

WALTHAM, Mass. — Authorities say human remains found in Waltham are believed to be those of a 73-year-old woman who went missing last year.

The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office said Thursday that a preliminary investigation identified the woman as Sara LaRoche, who was reported missing in May. Officials say there were no signs of foul play.

LaRoche may have suffered from dementia, only spoke Haitian-Creole and had recently moved to Waltham from Florida, according to the National Institute of Justice’s National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. Several state and local agencies searched for LaRoche after she was reported missing.

The remains were found Wednesday in a remote wooded area.

The medical examiner’s office will try to determine the cause of death and confirm the identity of the remains.

Minnesota officials share anti-trafficking strategies at DC summit

Federal efforts to curb human trafficking in Minnesota were on stage Friday in Washington, D.C., as the state’s U.S. attorney was tapped to deliver a case study at an all-day Justice Department summit.

U.S. Attorney Greg Brooker described recent prosecutions ranging from the abuse of a Chinese nanny to a vast international sex trade ring to underscore the need to prioritize such cases beyond high-profile sporting events like the Super Bowl.

UPDATED: Police, school officials seeking vandals of iconic llama artwork

Fairfax County police are asking the public to help them identify those who destroyed a concrete statue of three llamas at the Potomac School in McLean between dusk on Dec. 21 and 5 a.m. on Dec. 22 last year.

The statue, donated by artist Una Rawnsley Hanbury, depicts three llamas standing in a circle. The artwork has been on the private school’s grounds since 1970, first as a climbing structure on a playground and then as a landscaping feature on the front of the campus following the school’s major renovations in the early 2000s, school leaders said.

The statue “really is a beloved icon for our community – something that generations of Potomac students remember,” Marjorie Brennan, chair of the school’s Board of Trustees, said in a Jan.
