LEWISTON, Maine—State police in Maine say the remains of a body found in a storage unit by relatives of a man who rented it and died earlier this month may be those of a woman who was reported missing in 1983.
Spokesman Steve McCausland says the man's relatives were cleaning out the rented storage unit in Lewiston on Friday afternoon when they found a woman's body inside an unplugged freezer.
McCausland says the remains haven't been positively identified, but may be those of Kitty Wardwell, who was reported missing 28 years ago at age 29.
The storage unit was rented by Francis "Frank" Julian, who was Wardwell's on-again, off-again boyfriend and was the last person known to see her alive. Julian died on Oct. 1 at age 80.
