More remains of Delaware woman sought after Kentucky discovery


NEWARK, Del. (AP) — Police have been searching in Delaware for additional skeletal remains of a woman whose bones were found stashed in a storage unit in Kentucky.

Officers with cadaver dogs returned Friday to the former home of Doris Wood, a Newark-area woman who had been missing for 16 years.

Some bones belonging to Wood were found this month in a storage unit in Corbin, Ky., rented to Wood’s husband, Robert Wood, who died earlier this year in Alabama.

The bones were stuffed into bags. They were found last week by a man who bought the storage unit’s contents at auction.

New Castle County police spokesman Jason Andrews said Kentucky investigators had asked the police to research the property as well as Robert Wood’s childhood home.
