SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- After months of intense national attention, a chapter of Lori Hacking's story will end quietly with a private burial.
The state Office of the Medical Examiner released the body this week, and police say family members took custody of it Tuesday.
Searchers found the remains Friday at a landfill -- where intense recovery efforts were directed after her husband Mark Hacking allegedly confessed to shooting her and throwing her body in the trash.
Police quickly confirmed later that day using dental records that the remains belonged to the 27-year-old Hacking, who had not been seen since July 18.
Her parents said through a spokesman that they're planning a private ceremony at Orem City Cemetery, where a headstone has already been erected.
