Human remains found this past weekend in Sawyer County were those of a Taylor County woman missing for three and one-half months.
For the first time today (Tuesday), authorities confirmed she was murdered.
Jean Viken, 39, disappeared from her home Jan. 29 in the town of Holway, and her van was found in February in a forest in Ashland County.
Investigators suspected foul play at the time.
