Aaron had been missing since April 1, 2017. Deputies said that she left her address on Placid Road in Hudson after an argument with her boyfriend and had not been seen or heard from since. 

Detectives believe Aaron was intoxicated when she left the address and left on foot. Her body was later found approximately a half a mile away from the address where she was last seen.

She was listed as missing and endangered after she failed to show up for a final hearing for the custody of her child.

During a news conference, detectives revealed they were able to positively identify her through dental records. 

There is there is no evidence of trauma to Aaron's body, according to officials. However, the body has been decomposing for eight months and was described as "skeletonized" during the news conference.      

Investigators are still investigating exactly how she got to the location and how she died.
