Remains found in Duluth confirmed as missing woman's


DULUTH - The St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office has positively identified a body found last week as that of Dale Elizabeth Gerard, a Duluth woman missing since last summer.

Duluth police announced last week that a person had discovered the remains about 100 yards north of an intersection, along a fence and brush line.

The news came as a blow to her family.

“It was tough finding out the body belonged to my mom,” said Kim Gerard, one of Dale Gerard’s sons.
