Nearby: Missing Sellersville Woman Husband Taken into Custody, Body Found by Airport, Reports Say
Over the weekend there were new developments in the case of a Sellersville woman missing for months.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Elizabeth “Beth” Capaldi’s husband, Stephen was taken into custody by investigators Saturday subsequent to a search he allegedly led authorities on in which an unidentified dead body was located.
CBS Philadelphia was first to report that a man in an orange prison jump suit leading authorities in the Hog Island area near Philadelphia International Airport, where “human remains” were located.
The Philadelphia media based outlet published stunning in process images of the search and husband Stephen in prison garb leading the way.
Community sources who asked to remain anonymous, said Bucks County investigators were at the Capaldi home on Thursday of last week searching the couples home.
“This is not the ending we hoped for” said the community source.
A spokesperson for the Bucks County District Attorney’s office said Monday, more information is expected to be released later this week.
“We are legally prohibited from releasing anything about this case at the moment, but we hope to address any questions at a news conference later this week,” Manuel Gamiz said.
Public Bucks County records show, Stephen is now being held at Bucks County Correctional Facility, however a review of online court records show no charges filed against him.
Officials declined to comment on John Capaldi’s status at this time.
A call to the Delaware County Medical Examiner’s Office was not returned Monday morning, however they did confirm to the Inquirer a body was found at the location investigators were allegedly seen with the husband at the area search.
As reported in October, Beth has been missing since October 10.
She was last seen at her Sellersville residence near the intersection of High and E. Church streets, where she lived with her husband Stephen.
She was reported missing by her daughter to police on October 12, who said she hadn’t heard from her mother, which wasn’t normal. Stephen Capaldi said he last saw his wife at home a couple days before.
At the October 26, press conference reporters pressed Weintraub on whether or not husband Stephen was cooperating with investigators, and why did it take two days for a missing persons report to be filed.
“Everyone we have spoken to has been forthcoming with some information,” he said not addressing the question on the delay of filing a missing persons report.
She vanished without taking her car keys, cell phone and other personal items she usually carries with her, Weintraub said at the time.
On Monday morning a drive-by where the Capaldi’s live showed no police activity.
