According to the Associated Press, a Missouri man confessed to his father that he killed his wife, Jacque Sue Waller -- a 39-year old mother of 5-year old triplets.  The couple lived together in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, a southeastern town.

Waller went missing back on June 1st, 2011 after she supposedly left her home to go on a walk.  A few hours after she was reported missing, her Honda Pilot was discovered on the edge of a nearby highway.  Her husband admitted they were seeking divorce.  Mr. Waller has not been formally charged in his wife's disappearance.  However, he is currently being held without bond.


Allegedly, Mr. Waller confessed to his wife's murder.  However, his public defender, Scott Tilsen, told the AP that the confession is according to the federal prosecutor, Larry Ferrell, and it was the first Tilsen had heard of it.

Waller was the last person to see his wife before she disappeared or "abducted."  Police in Jackson, Missouri do not, however, believe Mrs. Waller was abducted.  Authorities and volunteers have searched ponds, woods, and even construction sites where Clay Waller previously did on-site jobs.

Sounds so familiar to the Scott and Laci Peterson case, oddly enough.
