Venus Stewart missing Michigan
Venus Rose Stewart went to the mail box in her pajamas in April 26, 2010 and then disappeared. What happened to Venus has been a mystery for a long time as to what actually happened to her when she walked to get the mail that morning. It would be weeks later till the rest of the story comes out and we find out that Venus likely was abducted by her estranged husband, Douglas Stewart. Venus’ father, Larry McComb, said there was signs of a struggle on the front yard of his home in Colon Township, Michigan. Venus was staying there with him and his wife, Therese and Venus’ children, age 3 and 5.
Police first believed that Stewart might have been abducted by her estranged husband, Douglas Harrie Steward, 29, but Douglas had an alibi.
According to CBS affiliate WWMT, the police began building a case and court documents said that detectives found a blood stain on Douglas Stewart’s truck on the driver’s side door and a receipt from an Ohio Wal-Mart for purchases for gloves, a shovel and a tarp the day before Venus disappeared. The authorities also removed items from Douglas’ home that he used to live in with Venus in Virginia.
A local CBS station reported that the documents say that the tire impressions taken at the scene where Venus disappeared, matches the pattern of the tire’s on Douglas Stewart’s truck.
There is also a report that a neighbor saw a man crouched behind a gray pick-up truck that was parked on an empty lot across the street from Venus’ parents home where she was staying when she vanished.
Police had also released a sketch of a suspect who may be connected to the disappearance. Two witnesses spotted a man on nearby Adam’s Lake and they said he was wet and approached the witnesses for a cigarette.
