    http://wtvr.com/2016/02/25/boyfriend-of-missing-woman-zulma-pabon-arrested-for-child-neglect/

    This article is from February of 2016; the boyfriend was arrested for child neglect of the child that he and Zulma had together.

    This one is from November 2016.


    This makes me wonder if their child saw something that may have happened to his mother. He could be acting out as a coping mechanism, but maybe there's a real chance he knows something that he's too young to be able to process for himself.

    Thanks for this. I live about 90 minutes from the Richmond area and I have tried to keep up with this but I missed the last article. If Zulma's son did see something maybe something will come out after he has lived with his aunt for a while. This case needs to come to a closure. I believe we all have an idea who did it and LE certainly has more than we do.

    This is about an hour and a half from me and I've checked up on it every now and then. Just did a Google search and saw the boyfriend was arrested. Had to come here and see if there was anything else.

    Me, too. The hospital where she worked is 2 miles from my home. Here's the latest from today's bond hearing. Not only has the doctor/boyfriend been arrested, but he has been denied bond.

    Here's a snippet from the news report:

    I speculate he hid her body, then realized it would be better to dissolve it in a plastic trash bin filled with drano.

    16 bottles of drain cleaner (lye) and he does it in his house??!?!?! What, in the 2nd bathroom and with a small child in the house? And that had to cause an odor that would hard to hide from the neighbors and most of the bone mass would still be there. It's amazing this guy went almost 3 years before he was arrested.

    The trial is currently underway.

    Prosecution and defense present competing narratives about what happened to Chesterfield nurse at doctor-boyfriend's murder trial

    Powhatan man testifies about nurse's growing despair with her boyfriend, a doctor, before she vanished without a trace

    Sister of missing Chesterfield nurse said woman's boyfriend, a doctor, shut off contact as desperate family members sought answers

    I was on the jury in Dr. Gibbs' trial. Zulma's body has not been recovered but we did convict him of first degree murder.

    My own personal suspicion is that Dr. Gibbs had some assistance and hid the body on land near his family's homeplace in North Carolina. I hope some day she can be returned to her family so they can have peace.

    Ex-doctor gets 50 years for murder in rare 'no body' case
    https://www.sfchronicle.com/news/crime/article/Virginia-man-sentenced-to-50-years-in-12748458.php
    „RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A former Richmond-area doctor convicted of murder in the death of his girlfriend, whose body has not been found, has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.

    The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports a judge handed down a jury's recommended punishment for Dr. John E. Gibbs III on Monday.

    Gibbs' attorneys said he maintains his innocence and plans to appeal.

    The jury found Gibbs guilty in Zulma Pabon's death following an eight-day trial in December. Pabon, a nurse, went missing in 2014.

    Prosecutors presented evidence including cellphone records, web searches, store purchases of drain cleaner and acid, and surveillance photo images.

    According to the newspaper, the verdict marked the second time in less than two years that Chesterfield authorities won a conviction in a rare "no body" homicide case.“
