Theresa Lockhart was last seen May 18. Authorities had previously named Christopher as a person of interest in the case after he failed to report his wife missing before her colleagues.

On Tuesday, Christopher was found dead at his home in the 10000 block of Poplar Bluff in Portage.

Armold noted that Lockhart never asked for updates on the investigation and didn't participate in searches for his wife. "To be truthful, he seemed rather lackadaisical in his attitude ... definitely not the attitude of a loving husband whose wife is missing".

A friend of Theresa said that prior to her disappearance, Theresa had said the couple were "hitting a really rough patch".
