LEE, Mass. — Investigators recovered human remains presumed to be of 42-year-old Meghan Marohn, who was reported missing on March 29.
On Thursday evening, a civilian discovered the remains in a heavily wooded area near Fox Drive in Lee. Lee Police, the Berkshire State Police Detective Unit Assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, the Berkshire District Attorney’s Office, Massachusetts State Police Special Emergency Response Team, and the Massachusetts State Police Crime Scene Services responded to the scene. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner took custody of the remains to make a positive identification.
Investigators are still actively canvassing the area, and the evidence collected thus far indicates a high likelihood that the remains are that of Marohn.

Since then, Lee Police, Lee Fire, the Massachusetts State Police Lee Barracks, Massachusetts State Police K9 and Airwing, Massachusetts State Police Special Emergency Response Team, Berkshire County Sheriff’s Office, Albany County Sheriff’s Department, and the Berkshire Mountain Search and Rescue Team coordinated continuous searches for Marohn.
