Update: The partial remains found near the Philadelphia International Airport have been positively identified as belonging to Elizabeth. Her husband, Stephen Capaldi, has been charged with her murder.
Earlier today investigators recovered human remains in a wooded area near the Philadelphia International Airport, an area where police had been searching for clues in Elizabeth Capaldi’s disappearance.
Multiple agencies were searching the area on Friday when a medical examiner, as well as a man in an orange jumpsuit arrived at the scene.
Records show that Elizabeth’s husband was taken into the Bucks County Correctional Facility on Thursday, though it was not immediately clear what charges he will be facing. He is reportedly cooperating with investigators, and led police to the remains the following day.
Sources told North Penn Now that police and cadaver dogs had been at the Capaldi home since late Thursday evening, searching the home and property behind it.
