Karen Ristevski's mother-in-law has spoken out about her mysterious death, saying her son did not kill his wife.
Borce Ristevski's mother told News Ltd on Saturday he was a "good family man" who was nice to his wife and they shared a good family life together.
"He is not the sort of person who could do something like that," she told the Herald Sun.
The Melbourne mother's remains were found in a reserve near Mount Macedon on Monday, almost eight months after the 47-year-old went missing from her Avondale Heights home.
A lawyer for her husband Borce Ristevski has said his client is the number one suspect but maintains his innocence.
