BENICIA (CBS Sacramento) – A torso found off the Benicia shoreline in 1979 was identified as a Woodland woman who went missing from her home in the middle of the night, the Benicia Police Department announced on Thursday.

On the night of July 31, 1979, Dolores Wulff vanished from her home and her husband was looked at as the prime suspect, the police department said.

Wulff was part of a group of 11 women who went missing that year that the department was looking into after the case into the torso was reopened three months ago. The group of missing women was from around the Sacramento and San Francisco areas, and Wulff was ultimately the only one that stood out, investigators said.

Wulff’s husband eventually had his case dismissed due to a lack of evidence and he died in 2005.
