The Halifax Regional Police have confirmation that the remains of former King’s-Edgehill School student Catie Miller were found in November. 

“Earlier today, the medical examiner determined that the remains are of murder victim Catie Miller,” said Const. Pierre Bourdages in a press release issued Jan. 28.

“The location of the discovery of the remains will not be released at this time as court proceedings are ongoing.”

Jason James Johnson, 29, and 33-year-old Kelley Amanda MacDonald, both of Lawrencetown, are facing charges of first degree murder and indecently interfering with a dead human body.

George Edward Hubley, of Sheet Harbour Passage, is up on accessory to murder after the fact and indecently interfering with a dead human body charges.

“Our thoughts remain with Catie’s family and friends and everyone who was affected by her tragic passing,” said Bourdages, in the prepared police statement.

Miller, the mother of a young son, disappeared July 15, 2014. Her parents started an exhaustive search effort that ended on a tragic note Nov. 23 — the day Miller’s family learned their loved one had been murdered.
