How long did Christopher Revak live a lie?
-
It appears that murder suspect Christopher Revak took many secrets to the grave when he hanged himself Sunday in the Douglas County jail, and now family members of Rene Williams may never find out what happened to her.

Rene Marie Williams is still missing
-
Revak, from Ava, was arrested Saturday for the March 2007 disappearance of Rene Williams, of Mansfield who worked as a bartender at the Eagle's Lodge in Ava.

Revak had worked the for the last six years as a Taney County Ambulance EMT.  Today deputies from Douglas County went to the Taney County Ambulance district with a search warrant...apparently to look at personnel records and talk to friends of Revak's.





Investigators say they received a phone tip last Friday that led them to a farm outside of Douglas County and Revak. Revak's DNA was found at the Eagle's Lodge and he had been at the top of the list of suspects in Williams disappearance for some time, according to Douglas County Sheriff Chris Degase.
-
Some clothing was found at a heavily overgrown farm where authorities have been digging -- property reportedly owned by Revak. No human remains have yet been located.
-
Williams, a mother of three children, vanished after she closed up the Lodge on March 13th. Her disappearance was originally classified as missing and endangered, now authorities are calling it a homicide.

New developments today in the disappearance of Rene Williams who went missing from the Eagles Lodge in Ava in March of 2007. After going back over old information about the case, and conducting a number of interviews, police arrested a suspect on Saturday.

But, now as Kathee Baird reports, that suspect, Christopher Revak of Ava, whose DNA was found at the crime scene and a former patron of the Eagles Lodge -- is now dead...
Revak hanged himself in the Douglas County jail yesterday.


Following tips, authorities began to search a field Friday night and Saturday morning for evidence. Douglas County Sheriff Chris Degase says that some clothing evidence was found in the field, but Williams' body has not been recovered.

Sheriff's deputies, the Highway Patrol, and divers took part in the search. The sheriff has not revealed the exact spot they were looking in only saying that it was outside of Douglas County.

The search for Williams remains continues, according to DeGase.

Kathee,
I hope you are just on vacation or
something? You never get any comments but I want you to know that I am an avid reader! I live in
Kansas City but also have a place
in Ava. You can well imagine that
your last entry was sensational.
I was foolishly under the impression that nothing much
happened in SW Missouri.
