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.
