Man Leads Va. Investigators to Wife's Remains

June 14, 2010

Virginia State Police say a man who pleaded guilty last year to killing his wife in 1995 has finally led police to her body.

Lawrence Gaudenzi pleaded guilty in May 2009 to murdering 31-year-old Lisa K. Gaudenzi. He entered the plea three days into his trial last May and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Last week, Gaudenzi led police to her remains in a remote field in Spotsylvania County. A dental bridge later confirmed the remains as those of Lisa Gaudenzi.

Gaudenzi said he killed his wife in their home about 30 miles away, wrapped her body in a sleeping bag, stuffed her in a barrel and filled it with acid.

State police said Monday Lisa Gaudenzi's remains were delivered to her parents over the weekend.
