LEWISTON — Maine State Police say the remains of a body found in a Lewiston storage unit may be those of a woman who went missing in 1983.

Spokesman Steve McCausland said relatives of a Lewiston man were cleaning out the rented storage unit Friday afternoon when they found a woman’s body inside a freezer.

McCausland said the remains haven’t been positively identified, but may be those of Kitty Wardwell, who was reported missing 28 years ago at the age of 29.

The storage unit was rented by Francis “Frank” Julian, who was Wardwell’s on-again, off-again boyfriend and was the last person known to see her alive. Julian died on Oct. 1 at the age of 80.
