UPDATE: WHO IS TRACY TRIMBY?

WE NOW KNOW THE WHO ...
    ALONG WITH THE WHERE ...
    BUT MANY MORE QUESTIONS LINGER ABOUT THE HUMAN REMAINS DISCOVERED IN ROCHESTER.


    THAT'S WHY ---- IN TONIGHT'S TOP STORY
    NEWSCHANNEL AT NINE'S LIZ FOSTER DID SOME DIGGING TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT WHO "TRACY TRIMBY" IS AND WHY NO ONE FILED A MISSING PERSONS REPORT ON HER.

43-YEAR OLD TRACY TRIMBY.. IS THE WOMAN WHOSE SKELETAL REMAINS WERE FOUND IN A SHED BEHIND A ROCHESTER HOME LAST MONTH.

DENTAL RECORDS IDENTIFIED THE DECATUR WOMAN.. WHO AUTHORITIES SAY WAS LIKELY DEAD UP TO FOUR YEARS.
    SANGAMON COUNTY CORONER CINDA EDWARDS BELIEVES SHE WAS MURDERED.. AND HER BODY WAS MOVED TO THIS SHED FROM A DIFFERENT LOCATION.
    TRIMBY WAS NOT LISTED AS A MISSING PERSON... EDWARDS SAYS -- THAT'S REALLY NOT UNCOMMON.

 "SOMETIMES PEOPLE BECOME ESTRANGED FROM THEIR FAMILY OR DON'T KEEP IN COMMUNICATION WITH THEIR FAMILY AND MAY BE THE TYPE THAT MOVES AROUND A LOT. SO IT'S NOT TOTALLY UNUSUAL FOR A FAMILY NOT TO HAVE REPORTED SOMEONE MISSING."   

TRIMBY HAD A LONG HISTORY WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT.
HER FIRST CRIMINAL CHARGE CAME AT AGE 19.. AND OVER THE YEARS.. SHE WAS CHARGED WITH... FORGERY, DOMESTIC BATTERY, ROBBERY, THEFT AND SEVERAL DRUG CHARGES.
    IN MARCH OF 2010, TRIMBY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE IN A MACON COUNTY COURTROOM FOR A DRUG CHARGE... AND NEVER SHOWED UP...

A JUDGE ISSUED A WARRANT FOR HER ARREST... BUT LAW ENFORCEMENT NEVER TRACKED HER DOWN.
