City Watch issued for missing mother

“She’s never been late if she’s five minutes late she would call and say I’m running late, never missed work , never missed work without calling and telling me why,” said Upchurch.

Memphis police say they are also concerned because Ricarda never picked up her 7- month- old son from the baby sitter’s house, has not been in contact with family and left behind personal belongings. Police reports also show that officers responded to a domestic disturbance at her house back in January and police say she had been staying at a domestic abuse shelter.

“All these things add .. take each item ..what have is the potential for some harm to have befallen her due to domestic violence,” said Sgt. Vince Higgins.

Upchurch says no matter what was happening in her life Ricarda never would have gone away without telling someone.

“If she was planning on running to get away from the situation she wouldn’t have left her wallet behind, her cell phone behind and she certainly wouldn’t leave her child behind,” said Upchurch. (WREG)

Additional Charges Added Against Justin Thurber in Jodi Sanderholm Murder Case

Prosecutors have added an additional “aggravated sodomy” charge against Justin Thurber in the death of 19 year old Jodi Sanderholm.

The charge is aggravated criminal sodomy. The new charge will be added to the previous charges of aggravated kidnapping, rape and capital murder, according to Kansas Attorney General Paul Morrison and Cowley County Attorney Chris Smith.

Smith said this morning that some evidence had come back that demonstrated to them that the additional charge needed to be brought.

“It was something we thought, but we just wanted to make sure we had the evidence to sustain the charge,” he said. “It’s another charge to go with in what we believe happened to Miss Sanderholm.”

This additional charge will allow the prosecution to go after the death penalty against Thurber. A sentence that he justly deserves.

Smith said the new charge was an “aggravating charge” and in the capital murder statute, if a person commits a murder while engaged in a rape or aggravated criminal sodomy, it allows the state to make it a death-eligible case if prosecutors choose that route.

He said the state already had that option with the rape charge but this would give them another option. (Ark
