|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.
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.
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...
