LCSO identifies remains found in submerged vehicle
LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The body of a woman reported missing 25 years ago was discovered earlier this week in a submerged vehicle.
Scott Dunlap was searching for 25-year-old Chelsey Green near the Lee Civic Center at Bayshore Road and State Road 31 when he discovered the vehicle in a pond.
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office dive team found the red sports car in approximately 20 feet of water.
Inside the vehicle were skeletal remains.
Those remains have now been identified by authorities as those of Rita Sue Zul.
Zul was reported missing back on January 15, 1990.
According to the original report, Zul was employed at the Marina 31 Lounge in East Fort Myers as a waitress.
Zul left the restaurant after work on January 14, 1990 driving her boyfriend’s red Datsun, but never made it home.
