Posted: April 06, 2012

KEANSBURG, N.J. - A New Jersey man concealed the remains of his adult daughter for more than three years in his former house, at one point moving the body into a crawlspace, where it was discovered this week by a cleaning crew, authorities said Thursday.

Dennis Adler, 57, made an appearance in state Superior Court in Monmouth County to face a charge of disturbing human remains. He didn't enter a plea and was held on $100,000 bail.

Police were called to Adler's former home in Keansburg on Tuesday after a cleaning service discovered the remains. Dental records confirmed the remains were those of Kimberly Adler. It could take a few weeks to receive the results of an autopsy to determine the cause her death.

The county prosecutor's office said Kimberly Adler was likely 23 when she died. She was never reported missing.
