Police investigating case of missing Mich. woman as homicide

Kimberly Ann Dejohn, 51, has been missing since May 14, according to police in Warren, Mich. CBS Detroit

WARREN, Mich. - Police are investigating the disappearance of a 51-year-old woman as a possible homicide, reports CBS Detroit. Her husband is already behind bars for alleged spousal abuse.

Kimberly Ann Dejohn was reported missing by her sister on May 28, according to the station. Her sister told police she had not seen Dejohn since the morning of May 14. Police twice searched her home in Warren, Mich. - a suburb of Detroit - and found evidence of domestic violence.

"We interviewed the husband," Police Commissioner Jere Green told CBS Detroit. "He admitted to altercation with his wife on the fourteenth."

Dejohn's husband, who has not been identified, was arraigned on domestic violence charges and is currently being held on a $750,000 cash bond.

"The evidence that we have suggests that there was foul play in the home; at this point, it's being investigated as a possible homicide.... We continue to collect evidence and do interviews," Green said, declining to comment further about what evidence was found. He added investigators had a third search warrant which they planned to serve on Thursday at a different Michigan location in hopes of finding more clues.

CBS Detroit describes Dejohn as a white female, 5-foot-5-inches tall, with brown hair and brown eyes. She weighs around 165 pounds and has multiple tattoos.

Those who have any information about this case - or who may have seen Dejohn since she went missing - are asked to call Warren police at 586-574-4790 or 586-574-4877.
