ONEIDA – OPP say police in Oneida have uncovered the remains of 48-year-old Douglas Hill, a Brantford man who had been missing since late June.
Members of the Ontario Provincial Police, OPP Forensic Identification Services (FIS), Ontario Forensic Pathology Services – Forensic Anthropology, and the Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario are continuing the investigation.
So far four people have been charged in the disappearance of Hill. A 17-year-old girl was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in the case.
Three others; 35-year-old Holly Martin, 24-year-old Lori Anne Staats and 34-year-old Nicholas Joel Shipman of Ohsweken were all charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder earlier this month.
Police were recently searching for information of possible sightings of an SUV with front end damage on the nearby Chippewas of the Thames First Nation connected to Hill’s disappearance and murder investigation.
Six Nations Police Chief Glenn Lickers says, “I would like to personally thank all of the citizens that provided information to investigators to bring this incident to a successful conclusion. We located Douglas Hill and it is my hopes that this will bring some resolution to his family.”
