The medical examiner was able to confirm the identity by using dental records. They believe she had been dead for “several months.”

Investigators have returned to the scene off High Street multiple times since Anyanwu-Corbin was found.

Lydia Cottrelle-Porter misses her best friend and like investigators, wants to know how she died and how her body ended up in the woods. She last heard from Corbin back in December of 2015 two months before she was listed as missing.

“She wasn’t answering messages back and forth and then I seen pictures everywhere saying she was missing,” she said.

Cottrelle-Porter says her friend struggled with addiction, but was trying to get help.

“Susan was very nice, very outgoing, outspoken,” she said.

Morrissey said they haven’t established a cause of death yet and have not declared this a homicide investigation.

Cottrelle-Porter thinks she was kidnapped and hopes someone comes forward with information that will help piece together just what happened to the young woman.

“I want closure,” Cottrelle-Porter said. “I want that, I can go find her, go to her grave.”

Anyanwu-Corbin was found wearing a Marist College sweatshirt and a bracelet that read “Peace.”
