Body Parts Found In Dead Man's Storage Locker


LEWISTON, Maine ~ (NBC Washington) ~ A Maine family cleaned out a deceased relative's storage locker and discovered human remains from a woman thought to be missing since 1983.

80-year-old Frank Julian had rented a 10-by-10-foot storage locker at the Moore Self Storage facility for decades prior to his death on October 1st. When his surviving family members cleaned out the rented room, they found the grisly discovery in an unplugged freezer. The State Medical Examiner's Office was scheduled to perform an autopsy on Monday, October 24th, but authorities believe the remains are of Kitty Wardwell, who went missing in July of 1983 after being seen with Julian, her former boyfriend.

"Our investigation now looks to the Medical Examiner's Office for answers," said Steve McCausland, spokesman for the Maine State Police, "DNA may be needed for a positive identification." Wardwell was initially reported missing by a friend in the summer of 1983, and then again four months later by her sister. At the time of her disappearance Wardwell was 29 years old while Julian was age 52. Julian told police in Salem, New Hampshire, that he had left Wardwell at a Salem motel after the couple had a fight. Police concluded that Wardwell was the victim of foul play. According to Julian's obituary, he owned a pizza shop in Bangor in the 1960s, then went on to become a novelty salesman until his death. He is survived by his wife, four sons and five daughters
