In a press conference today, Donald Bennett, chief of police in Plainfield, Illinois, named Craig Stebic as a “person of interest” in the investigation of his wife Lisa Stebic’s disappearance.
Stebic did not allow police access to the couple’s children, a 10-year old and a 12-year old, which police say has hampered the investigation.
There has been no activity on Lisa’s credit cards, cell phone, or checking accounts. Investigators are focusing on the chance Lisa may be a victim of foul play. Lisa and Craig were in the middle of a divorce when she went missing on April 30, 2007.
Chief Bennett said that Craig Stebic has been of “minimal assistance to detectives and refused to participate in searches.” This was a contributing factor in naming him a “person of interest.”
