    VA - Margaret Stamper White, 34, Crimora, 13 May 2008

    http://www.whsv.com/news/headlines/26344929.html

    7 August 08

    The Augusta County Sheriff's Office is searching for a missing woman who has not been seen for three months.

    Thirty-five-year-old Margaret Gail-Stamper White was last seen in mid-May, but her family did not report her missing until July 29, which is making it hard for officials to look for her.

    Augusta County Sheriff Randy Fisher has confirmed that she is Charles Spencer's girlfriend. Spencer was a suspect in the 2003 murder case of JoAnne Spencer, but he was never arrested or stood trial for it. The murder case has never been solved.

    "The White case remains a top priority — and a “thorn in the side” — of Sgt. A.C. Powers of the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office. White was last seen by her live-in boyfriend, Charles Melvin Spencer, who was a suspect five years ago in the murder of his former wife, Jo Ann Spencer, according to a search warrant.

    Powers is working both cases, which he said might be connected."

    The article above is a compilation of cases and Margaret Gail-Stampers is included.

    "The live-in girlfriend of a Crimora man who was named as a prime suspect in his former wife's still unsolved murder nearly five years ago, hasn't been seen in months, police said..."

    "She has no driver's license, no vehicle, no bank account, no credit card and she left her cell phone behind,"

    Margret Gail Stamper White

    You need to check out a facebook page under Gail Shapiro. I believe this sick bastard is Charles Melvin Spencer in drag and that he is living under the name Richard D Stock in Mesa AZ and that he is a serial killer and has been posing bodys taking pics and posting them on facebook under Gail Shapiro

    A Crimora man behind bars on a slew of charges will stay there for the time being. Charles Melvin Spencer is suspected of attempting to kill his live-in girlfriend.

    Spencer was already denied bond in Augusta Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on attempted second degree murder charges in June. Tuesday, another judge denied him bond on gun charges and drug charges.

    He will be back in court later this month on strangulation and attempted second degree murder charges for trying to kill his live-in girlfriend.

    This is the same Charles Spencer who was a suspect in his wife's murder. Joann Spencer's body was found six weeks after she first went missing in December of 2003. No arrests were ever made in the case.

    I don't know why this article confuses me so much, but I think this is a third case? i.e. he is being charged with the attempted murder of an unnamed girlfriend, is suspected of killing Margaret, and his wife Joann.

    A Crimora man, who is linked to several other cases, is now charged with attempted murder after investigators say he strangled his live-in girlfriend.

    Charles Spencer, 66, faces a second degree attempted murder charge and unlawfully applying pressure to the neck. Investigators say he nearly killed his live-in girlfriend.

    Officers say Spencer could also face gun and drug charges after a search warrant was executed at his home.

    This is the same Charles Spencer who was a suspect in his wife's murder. Joann Spencer's body was found six weeks after she first went missing in December of 2003. No arrests were ever made in the case.

    Another woman who also lived with Spencer - Margaret White - went missing in 2008. Investigators say she has yet to be found.

    Spencer is being held at Middle River Regional Jail without bond.

    I have just seen a status on her missing Facebook page, posted by her daughter. I was going to copy and paste and link it but that is against TOS isn't it? Made me want to bump her thread now it's been seven years since she disappeared. Her poor children

    Bad news is that incompetent lawyers managed to see him freed.

    Charles Spencer has been found guilty of murdering his wife, Jo Ann Spencer, in 2003.

    http://www.newsleader.com/story/news...case/91599188/

    Almost 13 years after the body of his wife was dumped on a remote West Virginia mountain, an Augusta County jury sentenced 69-year-old Charles "Melvin" Spencer to life in prison Wednesday after finding him guilty of first-degree murder, ending a two-day trial.

    Spencer had long been a suspect in the slaying of his wife, 56-year-old Joanne Spencer, but authorities didn't charge him until this year.
    Questions still remain in the disappearance of Spencer's former girlfriend, a West Virginia woman who began living at his home in 2007. Margaret Gail-Stamper White, 35, hasn't been seen by family or friends since 2008. The case remains unsolved.

    Thursday, January 19, an Augusta Circuit Court judge upheld the jury's recommendation of life in prison for 70-year-old Charles Melvin Spencer.

    Another one of Spencerís girlfriends, Margaret White, disappeared in 2008 while she was living with him. White has not been found, and Augusta County Sheriff's deputies are still working the case.
