    FORT WORTH -- Police are investigating the disappearance of a 51-year-old Fort Worth woman last seen leaving her job at the General Motors plant in Arlington early Friday morning.
    Fort Worth police went to Glenda Furch’s Hidden Valley Estates apartment, near the Woodhaven Country Club, about 11:30 a.m. Monday after family members reported they had not seen, nor been able to reach Furch on her cell phone for the past couple days.
    "Family on the scene gave us consent to go inside her second-floor apartment," said Lt. Dean Sullivan, police spokesman. "Inside investigators discovered some evidence that raised our concern for her safety and her well-being."
    Sullivan declined to elaborate, but added "it’s really too soon for us to suspect definitively foul play has occurred."
    Also missing, Sullivan said, is Furch's car, a 1998 champagne-colored, four-door Mazda with Texas license plate L69 SJL.
    Anyone with information about Furch's whereabouts or that of the car is asked to call their local police department immediately.

    The car belonging to a Fort Worth woman reported missing last week was found Thursday morning burned at an abandoned car wash in Dallas, police said.
    Dallas police contacted Fort Worth homicide detectives after the car’s identification number matched that of Glenda Furch’s 1998 Mazda Millenia, police said.
    Furch, 51, was last seen early Friday leaving her job at a General Motors plant in Arlington, police have said.
    After her daughters reported her missing, police found blood in her east Fort Worth apartment, leading investigators to suspect foul play. Furch’s car, as well as several items from her apartment, were missing.

    The family of a missing woman passed out fliers on the streets of Fort Worth Thursday in hopes of finding leads.

    Glenda Furch was last seen leaving the General Motors plant in Arlington on Sept. 28. Police said her burned-out car was found in Dallas five days later.


    Furch's family members said they don't want the public to forget about finding her.

    "Please, somebody has to help us find and bring Ms. Glenda home," said Stephanie Sterling, Furch's relative. "She needs to be home with her family regardless of which way she comes home. We want her home."


    The family said they are offering an additional $3,000 reward for information on top of the money already offered by Crimestoppers and Schepp's Dairy.

    On a wadded-up ball of duct tape inside a trash bag, Fort Worth police say they found a thumbprint that helped them link a man to the killing of a woman whose body has yet to be found.

    Rodney Eugene Owens, 40, was accused Tuesday of killing Glenda Furch, a mother of two and grandmother of three who disappeared Sept. 28 after leaving her job at the General Motors plant in Arlington.

    Lt. Dean Sullivan, a Fort Worth police spokesman, said that Mr. Owens had been on a crime spree from mid-September to late October when he was captured after a police chase.

    According to a news release by the Fort Worth Police Department, investigators found indications of extensive cleaning and tampering with an apparent crime scene in the woman’s bedroom. That cleaning included a large area of the carpet where bleach had been applied next to the bed. The cleaning supplies and a vacuum sweeper were found to be missing, which lead to a search of a trash bin just outside the apartment’s front door.


    Inside the trash bin, investigators found a trash bag that contained several articles that belonged to the missing woman. Among those items gathered, investigators also found a thumb print on a wadded up ball of duct tape inside of one trash bag, which also contained other articles of clothing later identified as belonging to Furch.


    The thumb print was later identified as Owens'.

    I'm watching medical detectives right now,this segment is about this case. What a brutal man Owens is. Rest in peace Glenda you won't ever be forgotten. He was offered a lighter sentence if he disclosed where she was but he refused, why??? what does he gave to gain by doing that.

    :thinking:
