DNA tests results confirm the human remains found in an east Toledo garage last week are those of Elaina Steinfurth.
Ohio's Bureau of Criminal Investigation worked through the weekend to test the immature human skeletal remains discovered on Thursday at the home where baby Elaina was last seen June 2.
The Toledo Police Department was notified of forensic investigators' findings late Monday and waited to release the information until after notifying the toddler's family and the Prosecutor's Office.
Both Angela Steinfurth, Elaina's mother, and her ex-boyfriend, Steven King, are behind bars on obstruction of justice charges in the case.
On Friday, King's mother told WNWO that her son was the one who led police to the discovery of the human remains in the family's East Toledo garage.
Toledo Police continue to investigate. There is no word on any additional charges being filed at this time.
On the same day baby Elaina's remains were found, a trial date was set in the case against Steven King. That trial is currently scheduled to begin Sept. 16.
