Catie Miller's remains identified in murder investigation
Police found remains in November while searching an undisclosed location
Halifax Regional Police say they have confirmed that remains discovered during a police search are those of Catie Miller, a Dartmouth woman who was murdered last year.
Police found remains in November while searching an undisclosed location.
In late November, police started looking for clues at four locations: a house in Lawrencetown, a property in Sheet Harbour Passage, a wooded area in Goffs and the trail in Lawrencetown.
On the first day of the search, police found human remains at one of the locations but would not say which one.
Police say the medical examiner confirmed Wednesday morning that the remains are Miller's.
"Our thoughts remain with Catie's family and friends and everyone who was affected by her tragic passing," said Const. Pierre Bourdages in a news release.
The 29-year-old Dartmouth mother of one went missing in mid-July.
Three people have been charged in the case.
Jason Johnson, 29, of Halifax and his girlfriend Kelly MacDonald, 33, of Lawrencetown, have been charged with first-degree murder and interfering with Miller's remains.
George Hubley, 30, of Sheet Harbour Passage, has been charged with being an accessory after the fact by disposing of her remains.
Police have said MacDonald and Hubley did not know Miller, but the murder victim knew Johnson.
