Remains recovered in the Housatonic River in Stratford last year belong to a kayaker who went missing in Milford in 2009, police announced Monday.
Michael Krupa, of Middletown, went missing three years ago near Charles Island in Milford. The search for Krupa was suspended after 34 hours.
Two years later, in May 2011, human remains were found in the Housatonic River near the Stratford Army Engine Plant. Examiners at the State Forensic Laboratory determined the remains to be that of Krupa based on DNA analysis.
Stratford police said they notified Krupa's family on Saturday, April 28th.
