UPDATE: The human skeletal remains found Sunday, May 23, off Rt. 161 in Caribou have been positively identified as Kurtis Madore. The identification was made through dental records.
A complete exam has been done by the Office of Chief Medical Examiner but due to the condition of the remains, a cause of death has not been determined.
There is no evidence of foul play. Madore, who was 31 years old, has been missing since June 2, 2019.
On Sunday, May 23, human skeletal remains were discovered in a small wooded area off Rt. 161 in Caribou.
