Human remains identified as those of missing Olympia woman
SOUTH HILL, Wash. (AP) — The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified remains discovered last week near Tacoma as 41-year-old Ginger Gover, who had been missing since late July.
The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said Tuesday that her cause of death hasn’t been determined but that detectives are investigating the case as a homicide.
KCPQ-TV reports on July 29 Gover called a friend in Eatonville to say she was coming over but had to stop to fix a flat tire. Another friend told detectives he met her at a gas station to help change the tire and that he last saw her driving south.
Authorities say her car was found abandoned and stripped in Puyallup Aug. 6.
On Sept. 13, workers discovered Gover’s remains at a construction site in South Hill.
