ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - The remains of a northeast Florida woman missing for eight years have been found in the Ocala National Forest.
Alicia Eakins was last seen getting out of her boyfriend's truck on Feb. 27, 2000, in St. Augustine.
Her boyfriend has been in state prison since 2004. Authorities say Ralph John Faba told them where Eakins' body could be found. The remains recovered Saturday from a shallow grave matched her dental records.
Faba was sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to the murder of a 16-year-old girl found dead in a wooded area shortly after Eakins was reported missing.
Faba hasn't been charged in Eakins' death. State Attorney John Tanner says his office is deciding whether to seek a first-degree murder indictment from a grand jury.
