DNA tests confirm ID of storage unit body in Maine
DNA tests confirm that body left in storage unit was that of Maine woman missing for 28 years
By The Associated Press

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) ' Maine state police say human remains found inside a freezer in a Lewiston storage unit were those of a former girlfriend of the man who rented the unit.

Spokesman Steve McCausland says DNA tests performed at a laboratory in Pennsylvania confirmed the identity of Kitty Wardwell's body. The state medical examiner's office determined that Wardwell's death was a homicide, but the cause of her death was being withheld.

Wardwell's family was alerted Friday morning.

The storage unit was rented by Wardwell's former boyfriend Frank Julian, who died Oct. 1 at age 80. Wardwell had been missing for 28 years.

Julian told investigators he last saw 29-year-old Wardwell after an argument in 1983, when he left her at a motel in Salem, N.H.
