    First Wife Goes Missing, Now Husband

    Southern California Police Call Richard Forsberg a Person of Interest in Marcia Forsberg's Disappearance

    When 61-year-old Marcia Forsberg disappeared in February, her husband told neighbors she had gone away, but after police questioned Richard Forsberg last week, the college administrator vanished too.

    Now Orange County, Calif., police are looking for both of them, and they say Richard Forsberg is a person of interest in his wife's disappearance, though they have not said he is suspected of any crime.

    Marcia and Rick are my neighbors

    They live across the street and this has stunned my little cul-de-sac.

    They seemed to have a very devoted relationship and had lived in the neighborhood for 20 years.

    I liked them, especially Marcia. We had become friends since I moved in about two years ago.

    The police came to my home on Saturday AM and interviewed me.

    This is being covered on Fox News now....husband gave a myriad of excuses for wife being gone. Husband spoke with LE...said a friend picked up wife and drove her to Arizona...he disappeared immediately after interview with LE.

    This sounds really bad...wish there was some more info somewhere on this...

    OC Lady....thank you for the perspective....have you heard anything else about this? Thanks for keeping us up-to-date! I sure hope Marcia is found soon. From what Fox stated, husband was cagey from the get-go....Not sounding very positive, I'm afraid.

    OC - do you know if they have children/family? Thanks for any info you might have.

    Jim Amormino is saying that they believe her murder took place at the home in RSM. They said Mr. F made incriminating statements that implicated him in her murder.
    They believe he rented a car and transported her body to a secondary location. They do not know where that location is, but they are looking for her right now as they have a couple ideas as to where he disposed of her.

    A short while ago on Fox News they mentioned that he had attempted suicide. He was located at a medical facility but I'm not sure where.

    Apparently he rented an RV in Irvine. he made several stops, theoretically to dispose of his wife.he drove to Palm Springs. he then tried to kill himself and ended up in a PS hospital where he was found by authorities when someone saw him on the news and put it together.
    No doubt someone from WS.

    They may have found her in Lake Piru. They have to identify the bits of bone fragments that they may have found. Seems he may have burned her in a fire pit.
    He hit her several times with a statue in their home. he kept her in the home for several days and then took her in an RV and buried or burned her in Lake Piru. He is being charged with lying in wait which is a special circumstance and could be death penalty eligible.

    Then he went to PS and was hospitalized after a suicide attempt. While there, one of the nurses caring for him saw him on the news and called authorities.

    On Tuesday afternoon, after deputies spent hours searching for the remains of Forsberg's 61-year-old wife in the ashes of a fire pit in Lake Piru, the Orange County District Attorney's Office filed charges against the Rancho Santa Margarita man, charging him with one count of special circumstances murder.

    snip
    the couple of 39 years had an argument in their two-story home Feb. 9. Forsberg then took a small statue and hit her several times in the head, killing her. "When she turned her back, he hit her several times with the statue," said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
    He allegedly kept the body at the home for several days, until he rented a recreational vehicle and took the body to the Lake Piru campground in Ventura County.

    I just don't get how someone lives to the age of 61 and suddenly becomes a murderer. Bizarre.
