Cops: Possible human remains found in Poughkeepsie home
TOWN OF POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) - A contractor
working on a vacant Hudson Valley home where a woman who was reported
missing nearly 30 years ago once lived has found what police say are
apparent human remains.
The Daily Freeman reports Saturday the apparent remains were discovered in the basement of the
home, in a sealed container behind a false wall. Police say the home
belonged to James Nichols, who died at age 82 last December. Police say
he reported his wife Joann missing in December 1985 after she didn't
show up for an appointment at a beauty parlor. She was never found.
Police say the contractor discovered the container with the apparent remains Friday night.
The paper says the Dutchess County Medical Examiner will work to identify the apparent human remains.
