Authorities say remains of a human arm found along Salmon River could be UI student

Authorities say some human remains found along the Salmon River may be those of a University of Idaho student who died in a 2016 car accident.

The Idaho County Sheriff’s Office says a skeletal human arm was recovered last week by Idaho Fish and Game conservation officers about a quarter mile from the Rice Creek bridge southwest of Cottonwood.

Investigators say the remains were located less than a mile from where the partial skeletal remains of 20-year-old Cayla Danenberg were recovered last fall.

Danenberg and another UofI student died after their car crashed into the Salmon River in May 2016. The other student’s body was found shortly after the accident, while some of Danenberg’s remains were recovered in October.

It likely will be a month before any forensic results can be confirmed. (Lewiston Tribune)
