Remains found in 1975 have finally been identified as those of an Ohio girl who disappeared the year before, thanks to DNA testing.

Linda Pagano vanished after getting into a fight with her stepfather in September 1974, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. He told police he threw her out of their house in Kenmore and she was never seen again, the paper reported.

Then, in February 1975, a partial skeleton was found along a riverbank in the Mill Stream Run Reservation, according to the paper. It was determined the remains were those of a woman in her late teens or early 20s, but no further information was gleaned. The manner of death was ruled a homicide by the Cuyahoga County coroner and the remains were buried in a pauper's grave later that year.

NCIS: Los Angeles' Linda Hunt Recovering After 'Minor Traffic Accident'

  NCIS: Los Angeles' Linda Hunt Recovering After 'Minor Traffic Accident' Linda Hunt is on the mend after a car crash on Monday left her hospitalized. The 73-year-old Oscar winner and NCIS: Los Angeles star told CBS2 Los Angeles on Tuesday that she didn’t suffer any serious injuries in the wreck and was getting back on her feet. “Yesterday I was involved in a minor traffic accident and taken to the hospital,” Hunt said in a statement to the outlet. “I’m pleased to report I’m recovering well and have no serious injuries. Thank you for all the well wishes! I’m looking forward to starting production on NCIS: Los Angeles later this summer.” A rep for Hunt did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. TMZ was first to report Hunt’s crash. According to the outlet, she was making a left turn when the black BMW SUV she was driving collided with two cars. “An eyewitness tells us Hunt struck a sedan and then collided with a Honda SUV,” TMZ reported. “Hunt was visibly shaken, and witnesses escorted her to a lawn chair on the sidewalk. We’re told paramedics evaluated Linda on the chair and then determined she needed to be taken to the hospital.” Pictures from the scene captured paramedics speaking with Hunt before her hospital visit. The other drivers suffered minor injuries from the crash, TMZ reported. Hunt won a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award in 1983 for her performance in The Year of Living Dangerously. She made history as the first star to win an Oscar for playing a role of the opposite sex. The New Jersey native has since gone on to appear in more than 200 NCIS: Los Angeles episodes, as well as tackle roles in The Practice, Carnivàle, and Disney’s Pocahontas (in which she voiced the character of Grandmother Willow).

My Ohio . Community Calendar. More than four decades after a 17-year-old Akron girl went missing from her home without a trace, a complete stranger may have uncovered what happened to her. Linda Pagano , a 4-foot-10, 100-pound Springfield High School student, got into a fight with her

Linda Agostini was a woman who emigrated from South East London to Australia, disappeared from Melbourne on 27 August 1934. After receiving reliable information his remains were found on 2 November 2010 buried at a ^ " Remains found of N.C. girl who went missing in 2011, officials say".

A break in the case came in 2015, when genealogy researcher Christina Scates encountered a reference to "unknown white female bones" and posted about it on Reddit, where it came to the attention of Carl Koppelman, a forensic artist.

He drew an image from a photo of the partial skeleton and posted it online, but had no luck identifying the girl. Then, Cuyahoga County reached out to him about a separate case and he decided to ask them about the bones.

"What bones?" was the reply, he said.

It turned out that a misspelled word had kept Pagano's case from being added to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs), a database for missing persons, according to the Beacon Journal. The case was added to the database and a hit came almost immediately.

The remains were eventually exhumed and sent for DNA testing. They were recently found to be a match for Pagano.

Her siblings learned of the match Tuesday, and it came as a relief.

"I pretty much figured it was her," said Mike Pagano, Linda's brother. "I wasn’t really surprised. Relieved. It's basically over — and we get some closure."

Now, Linda will receive a proper burial.

“This is a miracle as far as I’m concerned,” Mike said.

As for what happened to Linda — and who killed her — that remains a mystery.
