The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the human remains found last week in Taylor County are those of Anita Bucki.
Bucki was reported missing by her husband Mark April 26. He said that the two were up talking the previous night, and when he woke up the following morning she was gone.
Initially officials said that he was not a suspect, but now Mark Bucki has been taken into custody. As of last night, he hadn’t been charged, but charges could be filed as early as today. According to a news release from the sheriff’s office, he is expected to be charged with her murder.
Last Friday, a couple discovered the remains while out for a walk in Taylor County. They were found off of Highway C and 64 near Medford.
As the investigation is continuing, the sheriff’s office has released few details at this time.
