SALEM, Ore. -- Marion County officials are trying to identify skeletal remains that were found Saturday at Detroit Lake in the Santiam State Forest.

Although the remains have not been identified sheriff's Lt. Tad Larson told KTVZ his thoughts turned to Lori Blaylock, the Bend woman killed two years ago by her husband.

Steven Blaylock was convicted last November for the October 2010 murder and sentenced to life in prison. During the trial, he admitted dumping her body in the North Santiam River, but several searches of the river and nearby Detroit Lake failed to find the body.
