Police have finished processing a scene outside of Halifax where human remains believed to belong to Nadine Anne Taylor were found on Friday.
Taylor disappeared July 31, 2010.
On Friday her accused killer, Steven Laffin of Dartmouth, led police to a wooded spot in East Chezzetcook where they found the remains.
RCMP Cpl. Scott MacRae said police have moved on.
"This morning the major crime investigators and the forensic team have completed their work at a scene just off of the East Chezzetcook Road near Highway 107. They finished recovering what we believe to be the remains of Nadine Taylor and [are] still working with the medical examiner`s office to complete the forensic side," he said.
In a separate case, Laffin pleaded guilty to kidnapping, aggravated assault, uttering threats to cause bodily harm and unlawful confinement last October at Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Halifax.
Those charges stem from an incident on Aug. 16, 2010, when a prostitute escaped from the trunk of a moving car on Old Sambro Road in Halifax.
The woman — who told CBC News she has since quit the sex-trade business — told a harrowing story about how she got into Laffin's car and he drove her to a parking lot.
The woman said Laffin grabbed her throat and choked her. She said when she regained consciousness, her mouth was covered in duct tape and her ankles and wrists were bound.
She said she was sexually assaulted, that Laffin slammed her face into the ground and said he would kill her.
The woman said she was stuffed into the trunk of the Laffin's car, but managed to escape and run to a nearby house to call 911.
Laffin is currently in custody for Taylor's homicide.
MacRae said Friday’s discovery will likely play a central role in the prosecutor’s case against Laffin.
He's due in court on Thursday.
