RCMP say they've found what they believe are the remains of a missing Richmond Co. woman.
Michelle Demers-Kennedy, 58, went missing from her home on Three Rivers Road in Framboise in May 2013.
Police say they found a burial site in North Framboise earlier this week.
They say they'll work with the medical examiner to confirm the identity once the remains are excavated.
RCMP originally charged Merlin Demers-Kennedy, 32, with second-degree murder in the death of his mother; he pleaded guilty to manslaughter last week.
He's scheduled for sentencing June 19.
