Triplets Mom Missing, Husband Is 'Person of Interest'

(Courtesy of the Rawson Family)(CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.) -- The estranged husband of Jacque Waller, the Missouri mom of triplets who has been missing for seven weeks, is proclaiming his innocence despite reports of blood evidence being found in his home.

Jackson police have labeled Clay Waller, who is a former cop, a person of interest in his wife's disappearance. The couple was in the midst of a separation when Jacque Waller disappeared on June 1. Her husband was the last person to see her alive.

"I want her to come home alive," Clay Waller said.

The family of the 39-year-old missing mom says the woman is afraid of her husband.

"I know the threats that he's made against her and I know the diaries that she kept outlining those threats. He did it, there's no doubt in my mind," said Stan Rawson, Jacque Waller's father.

Rawson told the Southeast Missourian that police have found blood evidence in the Jackson, Mo., home where Clay Waller was staying when his wife disappeared. The couple has been married for 15 years and has 5-year-old triplets. Jacque Waller had gone to her husband's home to pick up her son when she vanished. Before going to the home where her husband was staying, Jacque Waller had met with her husband and her attorney to finalize paperwork for their divorce.

Since she went missing, the triplets have been in the custody of Jacque Waller's sister.

On Tuesday, a judge in a Cape Girardeau, Mo., courtroom continued to deny Clay Waller visitation rights for his triplets. Clay Waller said that he's being hunted by the Jackson Police Department despite his innocence.

Another extensive search for his wife is planned for this weekend.
