    Police search for missing woman

    PHOTO

    Posted: March 07, 2006

    Highland Falls - Village and state police this morning searched the home of a missing woman, looking for clues about her disappearance.

    Petra Muhammad, a 30-year-old student at SUNY Orange, was last seen by a relative in Highland Falls the first week in January, Highland Falls police Chief Peter Miller said. The relative became alarmed after a few weeks passed and she didn't see Muhammad again.

    The missing woman's husband, William Muhammad, told police he didn't know his wife's whereabouts, Miller said.

    The circumstances led police to obtain a search warrant for the Muhammads' home at 35 Schneider Ave., and a camper, pickup truck and car parked in the driveway.

    Woman vanishes without a trace

    Baby, husband, belongings left behind

    March 8, 2006

    Highland Falls - Petra Muhammad vanished from this village two months ago, leaving a 2˝-year-old son, a husband and a whole lot of questions.

    Armed with a search warrant, village and state police scoured her home yesterday looking for some answers. A cadaver dog named JT sniffed around for signs of a body; forensic specialists examined the interior of the house; and police dug around the backyard. They wouldn't provide details about what they found.

    Missing woman has order of protection

    Husband had threatened to kill her, court petition says

    March 09, 2006

    Highland Falls - Four months before Petra Muhammad disappeared, she told a judge that her husband had threatened to kill her.
    He just didn't know what he would do with her body, her petition to the court said.

    William Muhammad also locked his wife and son out of their home in Highland Falls; disabled their phone to keep her from calling for help; and planned to teach their son "so that he grows up and kills white people," according to a petition filed in September by Petra Muhammad, seeking an order of protection against her husband. The order was granted, mandating that Muhammad not harass his wife.

    Police keep up the search for missing wife & mom

    March 11, 2006

    Highland Falls - William Muhammad willingly went with police who wanted to talk with him about his missing wife, Petra.

    <snip>

    A person who witnessed Muhammad's visit to Family Court for the petition last year said she was adamant - she wanted a "refrain" order, not a "stay-away."

    Muhammad, a native of the Caribbean island of Grenada, wasn't well-known in her neighborhood. William and Lela Jackson knew that their daughter-in-law had relatives in New York City, but they didn't know their names. They weren't sure how their son and Petra Muhammad, whose maiden name was Boatswain, came to be a couple. The Jacksons didn't go to the couple's August 2001 wedding because they didn't know it was happening.

    And they say they didn't know about the order of protection granted last year. "If they had problems," Lela Jackson said, "it never extended onto the street."

    State police are analyzing evidence taken from Muhammad's home. They confirmed the existence of one item in the house: a homemade doll, about 2 feet tall, that was seated at the kitchen table where Petra Muhammad would normally sit during a meal.

    The doll had wire around its neck.

    This is exactly why I don't depend on the police to enforce a piece of paper to keep me safe. By all means get it but have a back-up plan to protect yourself and keep your location unknown. Poor woman.

    Highland Falls Woman Now Missing One Year

    From the beginning, cops aimed their investigation almost exclusively at Petra's husband, William Muhammad. He had motive, they hinted: In the middle of a divorce, William had filed for custody of the couple's 3˝-year-old son.

    He had also, reportedly, threatened Petra. According to papers filed in Family Court in 2005, William locked his wife and son out of their home, disabled their phone to keep her from calling for help, and planned to teach their son "so that he grows up and kills white people."

    William, who has since moved to New Jersey with his son, did not respond to e-mails this week.

    Early on, cops were equally tight-lipped. But as the trail grows cold, investigators are opening up. "We suspect he (William) has information that would be helpful in resolving this," Highland Falls police Chief Peter J. Miller said last week. "He's been less than cooperative."

    One recent disclosure dates to the March search of 35 Schneider Ave. In an upstairs bathroom littered with filth and grime, cops found a sparkling white tub, hung with a new shower curtain. Might said he could smell the fresh plastic down the hall.

    That led police to speculate on a potential death scenario: Was Petra killed in the tub, then tossed away like garbage?

    Cops tracked the village's trash to a Pennsylvania landfill.

    They know exactly where the village's trash was thrown that week, although they've never dug it up.

    Then last April, cops thought they'd caught a break: Goshen lawyer Michael Sussman phoned local police to report a sighting of Petra, driving southbound on the Tappan Zee Bridge near the Westchester County line.

    "It turned out to be a woman who lives in the City of Middletown," Might said. "There were similarities, but it wasn't her."

    Remains NOT found

    http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbc.../NEWS/90313059

    15 March 09

    Skeletal remains found in Punxsutawney, Pa., do not belong to a missing woman from Highland Falls.

    Village police Chief Peter J. Miller said test results did not match the dental and X-ray records of Petra Muhammad, who was last seen in the Hudson Valley in January 2006.

    Police have chased dozens of leads and tips over the past three years. Miller is still waiting for results from similar remains found in Ohio.

    High-profile case

    Hoovler was an Orange County, N.Y., prosecutor when Petra Muhammad disappeared from her Highland Falls, N.Y., home in February 2006.

    Muhammad still has not been seen or heard from.

    As of April 2010, Waheed Muhammad, her husband and father of their now-8-year-old son, was a person of interest in the investigation, Highland Falls police said.

    Police at that time were trying to find Waheed Muhammad, who had relocated to an unknown address and who police said had not been cooperative.

    Prior to going missing, Petra Muhammad had filed for divorce and allegedly told friends she believed her life was in danger, according to information gathered by police.

    Missing 9 years now.

    Published July 2013 -
    Police continue looking for woman who disappeared seven years ago
    The detective handling the cold case, Anthony Kuhn, Sr., believes the missing woman is dead.

    “We have her passport; we have her driver’s license. Checks of her Social Security numbers show no activity. Her cell phone showed no activity after the time she disappeared,” he said. “We have checked with Immigration. We have checked with the airports; there is no indication she has left the country.” Kuhn noted the many times it was reported Muhammad told his wife he was going to kill her, and when police conducted a warrant search of their Highland Falls house, they found a doll with a noose around its neck sitting and all the photos in the phone had her face cut out of them. The case is very much active to Kuhn. "I actually keep a picture of her and her child on my wall so every time I look up at my desk, it still reminds me that she is missing. I believe somebody out there somewhere knows her whereabouts,” he said.
