Pine Bluff remains identified as missing girl


PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - The remains of a young woman found in Pine Bluff this week have been positively identified as missing 23-year-old Maranda Goldman.

Goldman disappeared from the Goodwill in Pine Bluff on October 8. She was supposed to have an interview with the store, but according to Goodwill, she never made it. Her car was discovered just sitting in the parking lot.

Initially investigators at the Pine Bluff Police Department said they did not expect foul play, however, since those remains were found and identified, authorities are now treating the case as a homicide.

"The biggest thing we need to know right now is the cause of death. We don't know if there's any criminal activity involved per se, and we also don't know if it's natural causes or what the case may be. So, we are waiting on the return from the crime lab", explains Lt. David Price with the Pine Bluff Police Department.
