Kyle Crosby is being questioned again in the disappearance of his wife, Erica Crippen Crosby, who was last seen on December 30. He was found in Brooklawn, NJ, after disappearing following his wife’s disappearance.

NBC Philadelphia reports Erica Crippen Crosby, 26, was last seen at a restaurant in Cherry Hill with her husband. She hasn’t been heard from since she posted a photo on Facebook just before 11 p.m. on Dec. 30.

“The shower curtain is missing, the sheets from the bed are missing,” said another cousin.

What’s even stranger, Kyle Crosby also disappeared — just days after his wife — following initial questioning by police regarding her whereabouts. He was finally found Monday night, according to NBC10 sources. Officials have not yet revealed why police were pursuing him.

Prior to Monday, Crosby’s phone was disconnected and he hadn’t shown up for work since he was first questioned, according to relatives who believe something is terribly wrong, especially given Crosby’s history of drug and assault charges. Source: NBC Philadelphia

Lawyers say two Albuquerque police officers, accused of killing a homeless man, James Boyd, last March, will face criminal charges.

KRQE reported that multiple sources confirmed Sunday that District Attorney Kari Brandenburg planned to file charges against Dominique Perez, a SWAT officer, and former detective Keith Sandy, who retired from the department eight months after the fatal shooting [of James Boyd].

Albuquerque has one of the highest rates of police shootings in the nation, but the murder charges would be the first time an officer with the department had faced criminal charges for shooting someone in the line of duty.

New Mexico law permits prosecutors to file charges without a grand jury indictment, although the practice is rare. Source: Raw Story
