Remains Of Southeast Missouri Mother Jacque Waller Found

Nearly two years to the day after Jacque Sue Waller was last seen alive, the body of the southeast Missouri mother of young triplets has been found.

The Cape Girardeau County prosecutor's office issued a one-paragraph statement Thursday. It said police recovered a body on Wednesday that has been confirmed as Waller.

She was 39 when she disappeared on June 1, 2011. No information was released on where the body was found, and a woman answering phones at the prosecutor's office said no further comment would be made, citing an on-going investigation.

Waller and her estranged husband, Clay Waller, had nearly finalized a divorce when she disappeared. He was charged last year with first-degree murder and goes to trial in September.

Jacque Waller's sister has custody of their 7-year-old triplets.
