A woman whose remains were found near La Quinta over three decades ago has been identified, Riverside County prosecutors announced Tuesday.No one has been charged in Kathryn Coffey's death.Her remains were found in a wash area at the base of a hill west of the intersection of Avenue 62 and Madison Street on Jan. 22, 1991. The bones, which were all that were found, appeared to have been in the desert for a awhile, the district attorney's office said in a news release. A subsequent investigation by the Riverside County sheriff produced no leads in the case, which eventually went cold.
