The body was exhumed by forensic experts from the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office on July 5, 2001.

On August 16, 2001, the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office made a positive identification of the deceased through dental records as 23-year-old Claudia Flores who had been reported missing since June 12, 2001 from the 1000 block of Windsor Avenue in Los Angeles.
