LEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Chief Medical Examiner’s Office has positively identified remains found in September in Lee as Meghan Marohn, a New York teacher that went missing in March.
The office was able to identify Marohn through dental records and forensic anthropological examination. A toxicology test found the presence of THC and organic products of decomposition. The cause and manner of her death are still unknown at this time due to the condition of the remains.
