DA: Woman's Disappearance a Homicide; Dead Husband Sole Suspect

A prosecutor says the disappearance of a Massachusetts woman in early March is now considered a homicide and her husband, who has died in an apparent suicide, is the "sole suspect." 

Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless on Friday for the first time identified 42-year-old Charles Reidy as a suspect in the presumed death of 39-year-old Joanne Ringer. 

Ringer was last seen March 2, the day she was scheduled to start her first shift as a taxi driver in Easthampton. Her car was found abandoned in Easthampton on March 6. 

Reidy was found dead April 7 in the garage of the couple's Clarksburg home. 

Capeless says authorities have searched the rural areas around Clarksburg for Ringer with no success. 

Reidy's ex-girlfriend is facing obstruction of justice charges in the case.
