Missing since 1966, woman’s skeleton found in dead cop’s cellar

The skeleton of a woman, Louise Pietrewicz who went missing in 1966 has been found under the basement of her ex-boyfriend’s 17th century Southold home. Louise Pietrewicz had an affair with married cop William Boken the same year she mysteriously disappeared.

The decades-long case has now been solved

She was 38 at the time, and was raising an 11-year-old daughter  who has fought arduously to solve the chilling cold case.No one had a clue where Pietrewicz could be, until now.

Last week, Boken’s wife led investigators to the area where she believed her now-deceased husband had hidden his mistress’ remains.The policeman’s wife told police that she presumed her estranged husband had something to do with Pietrewicz’s disappearance at the time, but didn’t act upon her suspicions because he left her and their family soon after.

According to PEOPLE, Pietrewicz’s skeleton was wrapped in burlap and buried under the Long Island residence.

Sandy Blampied, Pietrewicz’s daughter said, “I said from the beginning Judy Boken Terry was the key.I said, ‘she knows.’ And she did.”

She even told the newspaper that during an argument, Boken threatened to put her in the basement with his mistress.

Detectives with the Suffolk County Police Homicide Squad in Long Island, New York, discovered the bones wrapped in a burlap bag during a search of a 17th century home in Southhold at 11.30pm on Monday.
