Remains found at storage facility believed to be that of missing teacher

U.S. & World

NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities were working to determine whether “charred and unidentifiable” human remains found at a Staten Island storage facility are those of a missing teacher.

The remains were found at the Extra Space Storage facility early Thursday, according to the New York Police Department.

Jeanine Cammarata, a teacher at Public School 29, was last seen on Saturday night. The 37-year-old mother of three had been reported missing after she failed to show up for work. She also missed a scheduled court date this week in her divorce case.

The storage facility is about a 4½-mile drive from where she was last seen.

Her estranged husband, Michael Cammarata, has been arrested on several misdemeanor charges, including assault, related to previous allegations, police said.

At a news conference on Thursday, NYPD Assistant Chief William Aubry called Michael Cammarata the “primary suspect” in the case.

“We’re working with the Staten Island district attorney to establish probable cause and justification to charge him with murder,” Aubry said.

Information on Michael Cammarata’s lawyer was not available.
