Sandra Eckert went missing on March26, 2021, after her husband last saw her inside the family’s house.
Wes Eckert has given interviews to several local news stations, revealing that the pair had a fight but denying that he killed her or was involved in her disappearance.
Sandra Eckert is 70 years old.
According to WISN 12, her husband was detained at the police station while the couple’s home was searched.
Investigators have yet to make a statement about the case. The home was visited by investigators and state agents from the crime lab on Thursday.
The house on South-North Cape Road was surrounded by police tape all day as officers and technicians searched it.
Sandra Eckert Missing
On the evening of Friday, March 26, 2021, at 11:30 p.m., she was last seen at the home she shared with her husband of 40 years in Franklin, a suburb of Milwaukee, near Country Dale ElementarySchool.
In the case of Eckert’s disappearance, one odd lead has emerged. Eckert may have been driving a 2005 dark gray Dodge Stratus with Wisconsin license plate 319 LGT, according to the website set up to locate her (the muffler is on the passenger side).
A website says, “The vehicle was last seen by Muskego police at 3 a.m. on Saturday, March 27,”
“It was traveling southbound on Racine Avenue, westbound on Tans Drive, and then southbound on Crowbar Drive. Police did not pull the car over because there was not a missing person alert out yet and no reason otherwise.”
Muskego, a residential city in a county adjacent to Milwaukee County, is just 13 minutes away from Franklin. The Franklin Police Department released a press release with the same details as the website.
