The family of the murdered teacher Kate Prout on Friday told British media that they are relieved they now can say a proper goodbye to her. Kate Prout's remains were found this week after her husband confessed to her murder and took officers to where he hid her body.
Adrian Prout took police to Redhill Farm, Redmarley, on Friday to show police where he buried his wife. Authorities had brought in cadaver dogs, trained to locate decomposed bodies, to help search woodland in Gloucestershire.
Gloucestershire Police widened its search on Tuesday in hopes to find Kate Prout's remains. However, they had told the media that nothing of significance had been found so far.
The BBC reported that police said Adrian Prout had told detectives he buried his wife in a plot of land measuring about 250 square metres. Detective Superintendent Simon Atkinson, who is overseeing the search, told the media that it was a delicate and painstaking process.
Kate Prout was murdered by her husband four years ago. Her older brother, Richard Wakefield, tolf the UK's Mirror that the years since she went missing in 2007 have been like a prison sentence for him and his wife, Linda, because Adrian Prout refused to admit to the murder.
Adrian Prout, 49, confessed to killing Kate Proud last week. He was convicted of her murder in last February.
The area where he buried her is reportedly on his £1.2 million farm in Redmarley, Gloucestershire.
Wakefield, 61, told the Mirror that the family could now move on.
Jurors were told that Kate Prout had confronted her husband with an increased divorce demand the day before she went missing. Her husband had offer a settlement of £600,000, but, after discussion with accountants, Kate Prout decided to demand £800,000, according to the Mirror.
Jurors found Adrian Prout guilty of murder despite a body being found.
