    OK - Peggy Sweeten, 52, Grove, 17 Jan 1998



    Website that archives past articles. Excellent resourse when looking for past information published.

    The 52-year-old ex-wife of the former superintendent of schools in Arma, Kan., was last seen at the couple’s home in January 1998.

    James Sweeten told family members and friends that he discovered that she had left him when he returned home that month from a conference for school superintendents. He claimed to have found her wedding rings and a note stating that she had run off with a man she met on the Internet.

    According to court records, the husband never filed a missing-person report until five months later at the urging of his son. By then, he had obtained a divorce, and he eventually married another woman in December 1998.

    it looks like the husband probably had something to do with this. what i will never understand is why they dont just get a divorce. and in this particular case why didnt he just get a divorce before he killed her? was he afraid he would have to give her something in the divorce and he didnt want to part with his material possessions? i wonder what his new wife knows. it seems impossible that she wouldn't at least suspect something. jmo

    2011 article:

    A two-day search underneath a tool shed did not reveal the remains of a Grove woman missing since 1998, but the search warrant indicates her husband was involved in an extramarital affair at the time of her disappearance...

    According to the search warrant, the tool shed was built shortly after Peggy Sweeten's disappearance and James Sweeten told his son, Patrick, that he was building the tool shed to “pass the time.”...

    An anomaly beneath the shed indicated by ground penetrating radar equipment turned out to be a tree root, Wyant said...

    When interviewed in June, James Sweeten refused to submit to a polygraph test and... also refused a noninvasive search of his property...

    Patrick Sweeten thinks his father was involved in Peggy Sweeten's disappearance. Patrick Sweeten said the last time he spoke with his mother was in December 1997, the warrant states.
