Missing Pennsylvania mother’s remains found in coworker’s backyard 3 years after disappearance

MONROE COUNTY, Penn. – A missing Pennsylvania mother’s remains were recently discovered in a former coworker’s yard, three years after she disappeared.

Holy Grim, 41, was last seen Nov. 22, 2013 near her home in Lower Macungie Township, Penn., WCAU reports.

She was reported missing when she never showed up for work.

Her car was found in her driveway.

Investigators initially interviewed Michael Horvath, 49, about Grim’s disappearance because he was late for work the same day Grim was reported missing.

At first he said he was late because he had a flat tire; however, he later told police that he was actually at Grim’s home, helping her move a washer and dryer.

A bloodstain that matched Horvath’s DNA was found outside Grim’s home, WCAU reports.

On Sept. 27, 2016, a search warrant was issued that allowed investigators to dig up Horvath’s yard.

According to WCAU, during the dig, authorities unearthed a bone that matched Grim’s DNA.

Horvath was arrested on Oct. 13 and booked into jail on murder charges.
