ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The remains of a victim of recently deceased Alaska serial killer Robert Hansen were being exhumed from an Anchorage gravesite, 30 years after her killer led authorities to her body near a lake north of the city.

Hansen confessed to killing 17 women in the 1970s and early ’80s. Hansen died last month at age 75 while serving a 461-year sentence in Alaska.

The exhumation at Anchorage Memorial Park Wednesday afternoon was for the remains of an unidentified woman believed to be in her late teens whose body was found April 25, 1984, near Horseshoe Lake.

The Alaska state medical examiner’s office is among those participating in the exhumation. The work is being paid for by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which hopes to identify the woman.
