New information has been revealed about human remains found wrapped in plastic, under concrete and floor boards in an East End home Thursday.

Homicide detectives found the remains in the 3200 block of Riverside Drive after receiving a tip from a prisoner. Police are being tight lipped about the investigation, only saying that "human remains" were found under the basement floor of the home.

FOX19 has learned more about the man who could be responsible for the human remains found at the home. Joey Gyarmati lives at the house. He says his uncle, Richard T. Kuhn, 41, wrote a letter from prison to an ex-girlfriend asking her to move human remains that were buried at the house.

That letter was intercepted by authorities and brought detectives to the house.

Kuhn has an extensive criminal record and is currently serving a five year sentence at the Warren County Correctional Institution for a robbery he committed last year. Friday afternoon, Kuhn's nephew showed FOX19 where detectives discovered the human remains; underneath the floor boards in one of the rooms inside the home. Gyarmati says the human remains were under concrete and wrapped in plastic.

"[Kuhn] has been diagnosed as a narcissistic sociopath; which means he has no conscious and doesn't care about people or people's lives or anything like that," said Kuhn's nephew Joey. "I have seen in first hand, he doesn't care who's life he's ruined or anything about none of that. He is insane, he really is, he is crazy."

It is important to note that Richard Kuhn has not been charged in connection with the human remains being discovered, but his nephew says he is very capable of committing such crime.

Police believe the human remains belong to a woman who has been missing since 2005, but have not released her name. The nephew says the remains could belong to woman who testified against his uncle in 1992 during an aggravated assault trial.

"It said that in the letter also, that it was the reason why he did it because that was the lady that testified against him," said Gyarmati.

Clermont County Prosecutor Ron White said he is very familiar with Richard Kuhn, in fact more than a decade ago Kuhn wrote a letter threatening the lives of some of the prosecutor's office staff and a Clermont County judge.

Kuhn also escaped from prison for a 12 hour period while serving a maximum 15 year sentence for aggravated robbery.
