The Ashtabula County Sheriff confirmed a body found Monday night is the mother who has been missing since Aug. 15. Two people have been arrested.

People at the vigil can not comprehend who would do something like this.  They found some measure of strength coming together where Mandy's body was found near her home on Washington.  "She would be so happy to see this. I mean for Ashtabula to come together in such a tragic time and for something so bad to happen and everybody to just come together and support the family and support Mandy and her children. It just means the world to us," said Mandy's cousin, Alison Zoblisien.

Meanwhile, the investigation is continuing.  Agents with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification were at the home Tuesday searching for evidence. The sheriff said he is not sure if additional arrests will be made.
