Authorities trying to identify body found in freezer

Post by pi-girl on Wed Oct 26, 2011 9:53 am

(Reuters) - Maine investigators were working on Monday to determine if a body found in a storage unit freezer is that of a woman who went missing 28 years ago after a fight with her boyfriend, police said.

The storage unit was rented by Frank Julian, 80, who died earlier this month, and was believed to be the last person to see Kitty Wardwell, his girlfriend, alive in the summer of 1983, state police spokesman Stephen McCausland said.

Family members cleaning out Julian's storage unit in Lewiston found the body on Friday and notified police. The medical examiner's office began work on Monday to identify it, McCausland said.

LEWISTON — State police said Friday that the body of a woman found in a freezer inside a Lewiston storage locker in October is that of Kitty Wardwell, who disappeared in 1983.

A positive identification was made through DNA testing at a Pennsylvania laboratory this week and the results sent to the Maine Medical Examiner's Office and detectives Thursday, Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said.

The Maine Medical Examiner's Office determined that Wardwell's death was a homicide, but the cause is not being made public at this point in the investigation, he said.
