A man who died this month at age 80 took a secret to his grave — a secret that was discovered only after his family went through his belongings in astorage unit.

Inside an unplugged freezer, they found a set of human remains that investigators believe may be those of his girlfriend, who disappeared in 1983, when she was 29. Now investigators are trying to confirm the identity of the body, the cause of death and who may have been involved.

State police were awaiting results of an autopsy on Monday. DNA tests were under way to determine whether the body was that ofKitty Wardwell, who was last seen with boyfriend Frank Julian.
