    It seems like every time that there is a case such as this, the hubby ends up being the culprit. Not going to jump to conclusions just yet, but it seems that history has a way of repeating itself in these types of cases. Whatever happened to getting a divorce?

    I found a civil case in Cook Cty with both she and her stbx as defendents.

    http://www.blackbookonline.info/bboil.htm Go to Cook and type in the last name.....

    They are in Will County and nothing listed for Will Cty searches.

    I'm about 40 minutes or so north of them........ Hadn't heard of this yet, although I haven't had the news on for the last 24 hours, which is a rarity. (pbs break)

    While I too am leaning towards the stbx, especially since she left without a cell phone. Small chance on the excersize partner. However, there are quite a few forums for parents/playgroups etc. all over the Chicagoland area.... Particularly in more affluent areas. I wouldn't consider Plainfield an affluent area by any stretch, but it is an area that not too long ago was farmland and has had a tremendous amount of growth and new developement.

    I really hate to say this -- but here we go again. Are all these missing mothers and wives on board a cruise ship just enjoying life? They all are somewhere - I doubt there is a demand from space aliens for 'loving mothers' or 'almost ex-wives'.
    Can anyone vouch (other than his dog or mother) that he was working in the yard? When did he report her disappearance? They lived in the same house and hardly spoke yet were divorcing? That means, no doubt, that he was adamant about not giving up the great house and she probably wanted it. Or else money was an issue and he couldn't afford to get an apartment. She worked in the cafeteria of a school? What does he do? Call me pessimistic but didn't Sam Parker say he was doing yard work when Theresa was missing?

    "told FOXNews.com that Craig Stebic voluntarily handed over the family computer to police. Authorities still have it in their possession.

    "We're actively looking at all leads," Eiting said when asked if police are still searching the computer for any clues.

    Craig Stebic said he filed for divorce after 14 years of marriage in January when his wife declared in October that she "didn't want to be married to me anymore," the Tribune reported. Since then, he said, they've lived separate lives in the same house and have not spoken more than five words to each other in five months.

    Police were called to the Stebic house once in December during a domestic dispute, according to the Tribune.

    Eiting told the paper that it was a "nonviolent domestic trouble call, so it was a verbal altercation between Lisa and her husband. No arrests, no battery."

    Eiting confirmed to FOXNews.com that the Stebics were going through a divorce and said Craig Stebic was fully cooperating with the investigation.

    In 1995, Craig Stebic was charged with two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon after police stopped his vehicle about 1,000 feet south of two Lincolnshire schools at 9 in the morning, according to the Tribune.

    Police found a 10-gauge double-barrel shotgun, a .44 magnum semi-automatic pistol, a Ruger Mini-14 assault rifle and an AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifle in his 1998 Toyota pickup.

    He was also charged with four misdemeanor counts of unlawful use of a weapon, operating an unsafe motor vehicle and driving while his license was revoked, according to the Tribune.

    I deleted a comment I made about the Find Lisa website probably being set up by her friends not Craig. It turns out it was her family that did it.

    A neighbor that reportedly says they see her come home between 2 and 4 p.m. said they didn't see that last week. Hubby says she went missing at 6:15. How does he know this if they aren't talking to each other?

    I hope the kids tell LE plenty.

    Press conference about it but CRAIG DID NOT PARTICIPATE. Why not? He's too distraught. More distraught than her own family? Give me a break.

    Press conference video here:

    It's hard not to be a skeptic when nearly all of the cases such as this turn end in the husband being charged with murder. And every time I shake my head -- why not just LEAVE instead of ruining your life, and that of your children who will be left parentless.

    Some snippets from your link that piqued my interest:

    Lisa M. Stebic, 37, of 13244 Red Star Drive was reported missing Tuesday by a neighbor, Deputy Police Chief Mark Eiting said.


    Craig Stebic said he hasn't seen his wife since she left the house with her purse and cell phone about 6 p.m. Monday. She left on foot or was picked up because she didn't drive her car, he said.

    "It's been like three days now. It's getting a little crazy," he said, his eyes red and watery. He held a crumpled tissue as he spoke.

    "Somebody's got to see her somewhere," he said. "You just don't drop off the face of the earth."

    One of the Stebics' neighbors, who asked to remain anonymous, said she is used to seeing Lisa come home from work each day about 2 p.m. and leave again about 4 p.m.

    "This week was unusual because I didn't see her at all," she said.

    ==============

    So, the neighbor allegedly reported Lisa missing, not her soon to be ex. hmmmm. When? Wednesday night? Thursday morning?

    Yet, the (soon to be ex) husband, Craig, claims (article dated 5/3) he hadn't slept in three days? Why didn't he report his wife missing, since he was SO worried, that he couldn't sleep since Monday? I wonder. Little freudian slip there, perhaps?

    Also he knows when she left the house and that she had her purse and cell phone, but can't say whether she left on foot or got picked up. hmmmm....

    I'll be praying Lisa turns up safe and sound, although it doesn't sound very promising.


    ETA: According to the Chicago Trib (5/4), Lisa's husband reported her missing Tuesday morning. So if true, this looks a bit better for Craig.

    Plainfield Deputy Police Chief Mark Eiting said Craig Stebic reported his wife missing at 10 a.m. Tuesday. There is no evidence of foul play, he said.

    I think someone needs to call in the search dogs, to figure out whether Lisa left on foot or by car. Time is of essence!

    It seems more appropriate to discuss this here on the discussion forum.

    Does it sound strange to anyone else that HE filed for divorce in January (he says she told him October that she didn't want to be married anymore) yet he was STILL living there? And yet, they hadn't spoken in 5 months?? How do you do that?
    He's guilty. Get over it.

    I find a few thing strange about this case. But, not that he was still living in the family home. I know one of my former bosses is currently still living in his home with his soon to be ex-wife. They filed for divorce over a year ago. He just moved into the guest room. I also know that when I was getting divorced my lawyer 'dressed me down' for leaving the marital home. (and we just rented an apt. did not own the property)

    Now I DO NOT buy that they did not speak. No way that could be the case, they have children. There would have to be some sort of communication conserning the kids.

    Has anyone seen anything about LE interviewing people where she normally would work out? If she did in fact leave to go work out, did she make it there?

    Also was she at work on Monday?

    My gut tells me that the husband is involved, (seems to be the case most of the time in cases like this) but I would hate to see that LE focused on him, and it turns out that she hooked up with some nut job.

    I also have a problem with her just leaving and not saying a word. nothing like "I am going now. The kids are blah blah blah" or "make sure homework gets done." A mother just does not leave with out saying a word about her kids.

    OT-Betsy, I grew up in Barrington square in H.E. Small world

    That stuck out at me as strange. She said she didn't want to be married, so he just said ok honey and went in filed himself within a few months? I know statistically woman initiate divorce more often than men and would guess woman would also file first........ His not leaving the house would be do to "abandonment" issues with child custody.

    If he was really working in the back yard, at 6:10, did anyone see him? Plainfield subdivisions, look like all the rest of recent development with most places having a decent view off all the back yards. Seems a little early to me with dinner time........

    If she really left with someone to "work out" with her cell phone, and purse, the "person" who "picked her up" should appear on either the computer, home or cell phone.

    Hi to all my "neighbors". I'm in the C.S area, not too far from H.E.

    Hi to all my "neighbors". I'm in the C.S area, not too far from H.E.
    Working outside at 6:10 does not strike me as strange we eat around 5-5:30 and my hubby works outside till dark almost every night. But then again my hubby does not have a normal 9-5 job. so he is home some days by noon. just depends on what job sites he has to visit that day.

    OT-I am thinking I was a close neighbor of yours too! If C.S is the town I am thinking of, I just moved from there a little over a year ago. I was just down the street from S.S mall and the Kmart
