WESTWOOD — Pamela DiSarro had just returned from a funeral home, after picking the casket for her oldest son.

Steven A. DiSarro Jr. had died in a car crash at 33, ending a life burdened by the loss of his father, who disappeared when he was a boy.

When DiSarro got home, she was greeted by FBI agents who said human remains — possibly of her husband — were found behind an old mill in Providence. Steven A. DiSarro Sr. went missing in 1993, at age 43.

The timing was surreal, the swirl of emotions overwhelming.

“I couldn’t breathe,” DiSarro recalled in her first interview since her husband’s remains were found that day in March.
