BLUE HILL — Skeletal remains found in the woods this week are those of 37-year-old Jessica Grindle of Blue Hill, who has been missing since August.
Maine State Police spokesman Steve McCausland said the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta identified the remains Thursday night using dental records. Medical examiners will continue to work to try to determine the cause of death.
A deer hunter found Grindle’s remains Wednesday, Nov. 7, off the Grindleville Road. Several searches had taken place in the area since Grindle was reported missing in early August.
Wardens, as well as state police detectives and the Maine Medical Examiner’s Office, responded to the scene where the remains were recovered.
