Human Remains Found in Woodridge Identified: DuPage County Coroner

Two children discovered the remains while walking in a wooded area March 30.

The skeletal remains found last month in a wooded area in Woodridge have been identified as a missing Lisle man, according to the DuPage County Coroner's Office. 

The skeletal remains have been identified as Anthony Scott Arcaro, who was reported missing from Lisle in 2007. At the time of his disappearance, Arcaro was 37 years old. The cause of death has not been determined.

The Woodridge Police Department and DuPage County Coroner’s Department will continue to investigate this matter.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call the Woodridge Police Department at (630) 719-4764 or via the internet at crimetips@vil.woodridge.il.us

Scott Arcaro goes missing 

Nicole Goyette, Arcaro's girlfriend, told the Daily Herald in 2007 that the pair usually spoke five times a day. He was a father to her two daughters, she said. She knew something was wrong when Arcaro stopped contacting her. 

His last communication: Goyette said she received a text message from him around Feb. 22 containing a smiley face and an "I love you" message.

Arcaro was last seen Feb. 22. A missing person report was filed Feb. 23.

A flyer on a page devoted to Arcaro says that he was last seen with a friend named Mark Hall in a red pickup trick; Hall claims to have returned Arcaro home at 5 p.m. that day.

Arcaro was employed as a maintenance worker for an apartment complex, was considering starting a pizza business and was discussing marriage with his girlfriend, the Charley Project post said.

Human bones found 

Two children discovered the remains while walking in a wooded area near the 7900 block of Lemont Road in Woodridge March 30. 

According to the Chicago Tribune, teeth were found and a dental examination was scheduled; a forensic “bone specialist” was also being consulted. 

The wooded area is northeast of Ide's Grove East Park and south of the shopping center at the corner of 75th Street and Lemont Road.

Dana Horner April 23, 2013 at 06:46 PM
just a rumor mind you, google 7900 lemont rd, satellite view it, the house that resembles a junk yard across lemont rd.

Most times, missing persons' remains are stumbled upon by accident. Arcaro went missing the same year Stacy Peterson did. Any family enduring the pain of searching for their loved one and wanting to find them must never give up hope.

Stacy Peterson is alive. Otherwise there would be evidence she is dead. There is more evidence she ran away than anything. Point one, her mom suffered from depression and ran away. It is even noted she was an unstable mother, running away from her kids more than one occasion. Stacy suffered from depression and was taking medication for it. She wanted a divorce, but something tells me she did not want to be an accessory want to murder 1. Because if she is alive, she is no doubt an accessory due to the fact she didn't tell anyone about the murder for many years. Stacy will be found Watchful Eye, but alive and well. Maybe than ppl will see who really were the criminals behind the Savio murder.

"otherwise there would be evidence." Was there evidence in Scott's case? I think Watchful's point was about the pain of searching families and not giving up. I hope you are right and she is found alive. Oh and to some of the others. A person can have junk in their yard and not be crazy. I hope you have more to base your theory than that before you point your judging finger at someone. I moved here two years ago and the hate in these suburban still amazes me.

correction - in these suburbs.

don't assume I don't know, my buddie lived three doors down on the other side of the street and I was raised in the area since I was 8...the junk in his yard was a marker, I made no statement to the fact of having junk in the yard makes you crazy, I'm a perfect example. I'm a mechanic and have quite a few "projects" layin around my yard, and what fantasy land did you live before your move?? hate is everywhere, wake up. and Stacy was my friend, I knew her and Drew before the marriage, I really don't want to say what kind of person he is/was, but lets just say the majority is not far off.
