UPDATE - April 5, 2018 - Through DNA results, the Suffolk County Medical Examiner has positively identified the remains found in the basement of a Southold home on March 19 as those of Louise Pietrewicz.
 
Below is the original release.  
 
Southold, NY - March 20, 2018 - Suffolk County Police Homicide Squad detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery of skeletal remains in the basement of a home in Southold at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Monday, March 19, 2018.
 
During an investigation into the 1966 missing person case of Louise Pietrewicz, Southold Police detectives searched the basement of a home located on Lower Road. The current home owner, who has no involvement in the case, consented to the search. Suffolk County Police Homicide detectives assisted Southold Police by using ground penetrating sonar which led to additional digging in the basement of the home where skeletal remains were discovered.
 
Pietrewicz’s boyfriend at the time of her disappearance, William Boken, the previous owner of the home, died in the early 1980’s. The basement had been searched and parts of it were dug up in 2013 with no results.
 
The remains were taken to the Office of the Suffolk County Medical Examiner to determine the identity and cause of death.
