PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- One month ago the skeletal remains of 24-year-old Elena Lozada of Portland were found in a wooded area of Northport.
Now a man from Saco has now come forward to say Lozada died of a drug overdose and that he left her body in the woods.
Police say they were led to that spot by 36-year old Nathaniel Pete Mincher. He told police he was with Elena Lozada doing drugs when she died of an overdose.
The story has left her family with many unanswered questions, including how did Mincher know for sure she was dead?
"For the life of me i don't understand why he didn't call 911? If she did overdose in the car, why he didn't drive her to the hospital?", said Carrie Cronkite, Lozada's Mother.
Police say they continue to investigate the case as a suspicious death. Right now Mincher is not charged with anything. The cause of Lozada's death has not been determined.
