On Monday, as part of their ongoing investigation into Wacholder’s whereabouts, Falmouth Police searched the area of Goodwill Park and the surrounding woods.

“There is no information indicating that Mr. Wacholder is in these wooded areas, today’s search is an effort to be thorough due to the facts that the areas being searched are in close proximity to his residence and to the last known location he was witnessed at,” police posted to Facebook at the time.

At about 11:30 a.m., Massachusetts State Police informed the D.A.’s Office that Wacholder’s remains had been discovered in the woods of Goodwill Park.
