A postmortem will be carried out this week to reveal the identity of human remains believed to be those of Allecha Boyd.
Strike Force Amias investigators and specialist forensic officers searched a new area of Lester State Forest on Tuesday, December 8, about 20km south-west of Coolamon in the NSW RIverina. Skeletal remains were discovered.
While the remains are yet to be formerly identified, Riverina Police District Commander Superintendent Bob Noble said the circumstances strongly indicated they belonged to Ms Boyd.
In February 2020, Samuel John Shephard was sentenced to 27 years' jail for Ms Boyd's murder and drug offences, with a non-parole period of 20 years and eight months.
