As the search for Andreen McDonald continues, friends of the 29 year old businesswoman gathered last night for a vigil to show support for her and for efforts to end the tragic case, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Milton Wilson, who provides music therapy and the assisted living facilities Mrs. McDonald operates says he knew something was wrong in her marriage, and he noticed it big time at the company Christmas party.
"It was set back by the distance between them," he recalled. "They didn't intermingle during the course of the night. He was in one area and she was in the other, all night."
Andreen's husband, Air Force Maj. Andre McDonald, who is a cybersecurity expert attached to the 24th Air Force, is jailed on charges of tampering with evidence. Sheriff Javier Salazar says he is 'not cooperating' with investigators and appears to be 'playing games' with detectives.
Wilson isn't surprised.
"He didn't impress me very much as a loving husband," Wilson said. "I am of the opinion that he did a dastardly deed."
Sheriff's investigators say Maj. McDonald purchased 'items you would use to dispose of a body' the day after his wife was last seen ten days ago at their home in an upscale neighborhood in far north Bexar County. 'Blood evidence' was found in the house, Salazar said.
Hundreds of Andreen's friends and family have been searching for her in several deployments which have lately focused on the Camp Bullis area, but so far no sign of her has been found. Salazar said two days after she vanished that he believes the victim 'is no longer living.'
