Oregon mom, girlfriend arrested in young girl’s death

Two women were arrested Tuesday on suspicion of aggravated murder after authorities identified the remains of a child found alongside an interstate rest area in Oregon.

Haley Mae Coblentz was identified on Oct. 4, after samples of her remains were sent to a lab for DNA testing. 

Coblentz was 9 at the time of her death, which police estimate occurred one or two months before her remains were found on Dec. 10, 2020. The corpse was inside a duffel bag at the H.B Van Duzer Forest State Scenic Corridor.
