Casper Man Charged with 1990 Disappearance of Wife
Casper, WY – Police say persistence was the key in the
weekend arrest of a Casper man charged with murdering his wife.
David Labon Bush is scheduled for an initial court appearance today (Monday) on charges that he murdered his wife back in 1990.
Lynn Lynette Bush disappeared in December of 1990. Her pickup truck was found at a nearby grocery store, but there was NO sign of her.
Police say they had their suspicions from the beginning. They say Bush acted strangely, and that family members wondered whether Bush was involved.
When Bush went to prison on unrelated charges, fellow inmates said he talked about killing his wife and getting away with it.
Now, police say they have D-N-A evidence that links him to the crime.
Lynn Bush's body still has NOT been found, and authorities acknowledge it will be hard to prove a murder case without a body. But they say their persistence has paid off.
