Police identify second body found at Wimer pig farm

Police today identified the remains of a 59-year-old handyman as the second victim accused serial killer Susan Monica allegedly murdered and buried on her rural Wimer pig farm.

Investigators identified the remains of the second body found in January at Monica's 20-acre farm as Stephen Frank Delicino, of Wimer.

Jackson County sheriffs deputies said they believe Monica murdered Delicino in the summer of 2012 and buried his body there. Delicino worked as a handyman on Monica's farm and was never reported missing, deputies said.

Monica, a 68-year-old welder by trade, is also charged with murdering Robert Harry Haney on her property last fall. Haney, also a handyman who worked for Monica, was reported missing last fall by family members.

Both bodies were discovered during a search of Monica's farm in January.

The identification was made through the Oregon State Police Crime lab, deputies said.

Monica, 68, remains in the Jackson County Jail without bail. She has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder.

Monica is scheduled to appear next in Jackson County Circuit Court in September.
