Friend confirms identity of girls found in freezer

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Police in southern Maryland say a family friend has confirmed that two girls found encased in ice in a basement freezer are the adopted daughters of a woman suspected of killing them.

Montgomery County police say they have tentatively identified the girls as Jasmine Nicole Bowman, who would be 9, and Minnet Cecila Bowman, who would be 11.

Police last month found the bodies in Renee Bowman's freezer. They believe the children probably had been dead since at least last fall.

Bowman is a suspect but has not been charged in the girls' deaths. She is charged with abusing a third adopted daughter who was found alive.

The identification was made by a family friend and is considered tentative. But police say they don't expect autopsies to show anything different.
