She drove her Trans Am to the Crüe show

... then seemingly disappeared. But County police, family and the band never gave up hope of finding Tracey Testo. Now her husband is charged with her murder and being held with no bail; her body has not yet been found.

Also, from the SAO:
At a hearing today, Lawrence Gee, 35, of the unit block of S. Monastery Road pled guilty to second-degree murder. Judge John C. Themelis sentenced Gee to life suspend all but 30 years in prison.

On August 19, 2006, police responded to 227 N. Culver Street, the home of Mary Page, 63, the victim in this case. Page’s employer, The Walter Art Gallery {sic}, called because Ms. Page did not show up for work on August 18 or 19, very unusual for her. Police found the house locked residence and forced entry into the home. Once inside police found Ms. Page’s body in the basement. There were obvious signs of violence, her pants and underpants had been removed, and Ms. Page’s face was bruised. An autopsy concluded that the cause of death was a homicide and that the manner of death resulted from strangulation, sharp force injuries to the neck consistent with being stabbed with a sharp object and blunt force injuries consistent with being beaten about the face and head.

Witnesses informed police that Gee dated the victim’s daughter and used to live in Ms. Page’s residence prior to her evicting both of them for theft and drug use. On August 26, 2006 police located Gee and pursuant to a search warrant DNA swabs were taken for comparison with evidence recovered from the victim’s body. On February 13, 2007 DNA analysis was completed on swabs from the victim and samples submitted by Gee and results indicated a match.

Her husband killed her? No, I can't imagine, he said he didn't do it, he said he loved her, he said he was family man, he was so worried because he didn't know where she was, he called the police and everything. What a shock!!!!! ;)
