Old Bridge news, New Jersey news.

According to the medical examiner, the remains that authorities found in Old Bridge belonged to the New Jersey makeup artist who went missing on Oct. 30 while visiting a medium with relatives for a girls’ night out.

On Monday, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office tweeted: “It is with great sadness we announce that Stephanie Parze’s remains were recovered yesterday in Old Bridge.”

The 25-year-old woman’s body was located in a wooded area not far from where her loved ones searched for her three months ago.

Her 29-year-old ex-boyfriend, John Ozbilgen, who was considered a person of interest in her disappearance, took his own life in November by hanging himself, the prosecutor’s office confirmed.

He had allegedly sent Parze profanity-filled threats on Oct. 29.
