Investigator’s tenacity helped family identify remains of missing Bogota woman

The break this week that finally linked James Viola’s missing wife to bone fragments that washed up on a Queens beach in 2002 might not have come without Gary Micco.

Micco, a private investigator and former police officer, urged Viola to find out if his children’s DNA had been entered into a national database. They hadn’t, they found out, and samples were taken and entered into the database last year.

“I think that’s what did it,” Viola said the night a Bogota police captain told him there was a 99.9 percent match between his children’s DNA and samples that the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office lifted from a shoe a beachgoer found near Beach 123rd St. in Rockaway, Queens, almost a decade ago.
