Final Surfside building collapse victim is identified

(SUNRISE, Fla.) — The remains of the last victim of the Surfside, Florida, condo collapse have been identified, a relative confirmed to ABC News Monday.

Estelle Hedaya, 54, was the final person to be unaccounted for. The death toll from the June 24 collapse now stands at 98.

Hedaya, a former New Yorker, moved to Florida in 2015 and lived on the building’s sixth floor.

Her body will be returned to Midwood, Brooklyn, where her family lives, as early as Tuesday for her funeral. Her remains were still in the custody of the county Medical Examiner’s Office Monday afternoon, which could delay the services.

Investigators have no more missing person cases to pursue from the collapse, but will continue to search removed debris for remains.
