Police Say More Testing Needed on Storage Unit Body

Updated 3 years ago

Maine State Police say additional DNA testing has been necessary to identify the remains of a woman found in a freezer at a Lewiston storage unit.Police believe the remains discovered a week ago were those of Kitty Wardwell. Wardwell has been missing for 28 years.The storage unit was rented by her boyfriend Frank Julian, who died October 1 at the age of 80. Julian had told investigators he last saw the 29-year-old Wardwell after an argument in 1983, when he dropped her off at a motel in Salem, New Hampshire.Spokesman Steve McCausland says the work will continue into next week. He said DNA comparisons being examined by the state police crime lab have been complicated because of the condition of the remains, so additional testing was needed. (AP)
