Isle of Wight County, Va. – Female human remains uncovered in Carrsville last November have been identified as a woman reported missing in 2009.

The remains were found November 7th in a wooded area near Harvest Drive and Gardner Lane.

The Medical Examiner positively identified the remains as Stacey Lynn Holste, AKA Stacey Virgili, through DNA testing. The cause of death was determined to be a suicide.

Holste was originally reported missing in September of 2009. At that time she was under investigation and considered a fugitive from justice with multiple arrest warrants on file for credit card fraud.

The area was searched after she was reported missing but she was not found. It was believed that she fled due to the ongoing investigation.
