Statement on the Recovery of Human Remains in Methuen, Massachusetts

At approximately 4:15 p.m., the FBI Boston Division’s Evidence Response Team—with assistance from the Lawrence Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Essex County District Attorney’s Office, and the Manchester Police Department in New Hampshire—recovered human remains buried in the back of the property at 145 Milk Street in Methuen, Massachusetts. The remains will be turned over to the Massachusetts Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for identification and DNA analysis.

The FBI will remain on scene until we have completed processing the location where the remains were located.

We’d like to thank the Methuen Police Department and the Department of Public Works for their assistance.

Due to the fact that this is an ongoing investigation, no further information will be released at this time.
