MSP: Remains found believed to be Venus Stewart

WAKESHMA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A yearslong search for the remains of Venus Stewart appears to officially be over.

Michigan State Police Lt. Chuck Christensen confirms detectives believe they have found the remains of the mother of two, who disappeared from her parent's Colon Township home in 2010.

Christensen said a tarp found at the scene matched the one her estranged husband bought a day before the murder. However, he said the medical examiner must still confirm the identity.

MSP said the remains were discovered down a two-track near South 42nd Street and East U Avenue in Wakeshma Township, about 20 miles southeast of Kalamazoo and 12 miles north of where Venus Stewart was last seen alive.
