WI KRISTA SYPHER: Missing from Plover, WI - 13 March 2017 - Age 45

    Rodillas said her husband saw Sypher walking down the block the week she was reported missing. Her husband said she looked normal and nothing seemed off. At this time, Plover police still do not know if Sypher left on her own.

    "We have been working this case aggressively over the last few days," said Plover Police Chief Dan Ault.

    One of many questions: Why did it take so long to report her missing? Sypher went missing on March 13 and her husband reported on March 20.

    "You just have to draw your own conclusions," Chief Ault said. "Some people have different relationships and why someone would wait longer, I can't answer. I'm not in his head," Chief Dan Ault said.

    Chief Ault said that her husband has been cooperating with police and there is no suspicious behavior at this time.

    Sypher is on the National Crime Information Center's System, which means any law enforcement across the nation and Canada would be informed that she's been missing. Neighbors like Rodillas hope she is found safe soon.

    "I just hope everything goes well and they find her so we can put a closure to this and we can all feel safe again," Rodillas said.

    Krista Sypher is described as a white woman with blonde hair and green eyes. She's 5'3 and 160 lbs. If you know about her whereabouts or any other information, please call the Plover Police Department.

    STEVENS POINT - Amber Haferman knew something was wrong when Krista Sypher stopped responding to her messages.

    Haferman said her friend of 17 years often responds to text messages and social posts, but last month, she didn't hear back from Sypher, who has been missing from her Plover home since mid-March. She described Sypher, a wife, mother and educational assistant, as "a wonderful, happy, vibrant, loud-personality woman that you pretty much know when she's around — in a good way."

    "My initial reaction (to the unanswered messages) was: 'That's not right,'" she said.

    Haferman said she reached out to Sypher's husband, who had reported her missing March 20, about a week after the last time she was seen. Police said last week they were still unsure whether Sypher left on her own, and whether she was still alive. While police continue their search, Haferman and her friend Angie Zoromski are using their own methods to raise awareness of Sypher's disappearance to help locate their friend.

    Drone used Monday in search for missing Plover woman

    Authorities used drones Monday to search for clues in Plover missing woman case.

    Chief Dan Ault said Monday marked the second time an aerial craft had been used in the case.


    Investigators fear worst for missing Plover woman

    It's been a month since 44-year-old Krista Sypher, a mother from Plover, disappeared.

    Given the nature of her disappearance, law enforcement is fearing the worst.

    "Knowing her behavior and knowing the way she stayed in touch with people and that not being the case anymore," said Capt. Gary Widder of the Plover Police Department. "That can only lead you to believe that's something's probably happened, certainly happened to her."

    Sypher was last seen in her home on March 13, but it wasn't until March 20 that her husband reported her missing.

    "We start with the nearest and dearest," said Widder. "Obviously he's a person that we've got to question and talk with. A person of interest for us, absolutely."

    Widder said it's often seemingly small details that can lead to breakthroughs in cases like this.

    Plover Police: Detectives Still Working Sypher Case, But Hope Dwindling

    Police say hope is running out that a Plover woman who’s been missing for two months will be found alive.

    In what’s being called a “complex case”, detectives say they’re still actively pursuing leads in the disappearance of 44-year-old Krista Sypher, who was reported missing by her husband on March 20.

    According to Plover Police Chief Dan Ault, over 30 investigators from Stevens Point, Portage Co., the Dept. of Justice, Wisconsin Div. of Criminal Investigation and the FBI have all assisted the PPD in following leads.

    “Everyone’s got an opinion on what they think happened,” Ault said. “But the fact is, somebody out there has information on where she is.”

    “A cold case is when you’ve got nothing to work on anymore,” Tracy said. “This is definitely not a cold case, and [Sypher] is still classified as missing.”

    When asked if he believed Sypher was still alive, Ault said, “I’m operating under the belief that we haven’t heard from her, her family hasn’t heard from her since the day she was reported missing. There’s not her history; I think any reasonable person can draw a conclusion to…I would love nothing more than if she were to walk in the door right now. Do I think that’s going to happen? No.”

    “Basically, we think that possibility is scarce at this point,” Tracy added.

    Plover Police: “We’re Going to Find Krista”

    Plover police say the case of a Plover woman who has been missing for three months remains one of the department’s top priorities.

    “This is far, far from a cold case,” Police Chief Dan Ault said on Wednesday, adding his dept. has released as many details to the public as possible without damaging the investigation, or any court case that could emerge later. “But I can tell you there hasn’t been a lull in this case and there’s no shortage of data to process.”

    Landfill Searched in Connection with Missing Woman

    The search for a missing Plover woman took authorities to the Cranberry Creek Landfill in Wisconsin Rapids Wednesday. 44-year-old Krista Sypher has been missing since March.

    Plover Police Chief Dan Ault tells WAOW Newsline 9 that officials were searching the landfill to try and make sure all their bases are covered in the investigation.

    He said, "This isn't a very common thing, but I don't want to leave any stone unturned. During these type of investigations, people dispose of various articles and items and so forth."

    Authorities would not confirm what exactly they were looking for at the landfill. Police continue to say they believe that foul play was involved in Sypher's disappearance.

    Chief: "Officers doing everything they can" in Krista Sypher case

    Plover police crews are wrapping up another day combing through a Wisconsin Rapids landfill. The police chief isn't saying what they're looking for, only that it is connected to the disappearance of Krista Sypher.

    Chief Dan Ault said he's "encouraged" by what crews done, but decline to say what, if anything was found. He said with agencies working overtime, some even on their own time; he's confident this case will eventually be resolved.

    "We're wanting to be as thorough as possible and this is one of those steps in that. And So far, I think we're making progress,” Ault explained.

    He said officers and other area agencies assisting with the case are putting in overtime. But some are volunteering their time to help make headway into the case.

    "I would say an average officer does just enough. An exceptional officer does everything they can. And I'm working with a bunch of officers and departments doing everything they can,” he said.

    Chief Ault said they'll continue to be out here at the landfill as long as it takes.

    Almost one year later, mother of three Krista Marie Sypher remains missing

    With kids, work and relationships, it can be hard to maintain a friendship for decades. Angie Zoromski, though, managed to do just that with her friend Krista Marie Sypher.

    According to Krista’s husband Jason Sypher, the next morning, the couple dropped their two daughters off at school together. The drove to a tanning salon, and later left together in the same car.

    Over the next few days, Angie tried to get in touch with Krista; Amber did, too. Despite repeated efforts, they didn’t hear anything from their typically social friend.

    “If you didn’t answer [Krista’s] call, she’d text you. If you didn’t answer her text, she’d call you,” Angie told Dateline. Angie told Dateline she and Amber were confused as to why Krista wasn’t getting back to them.

    But on Monday, March 20th, it all started to make sense.

    Angie saw a friend’s post on Facebook saying Krista had been missing since March 13th, the day after she’d gone to dinner with Amber. Angie called Krista’s husband Jason, and he said that after seven days of no contact, he’d walked into the Plover Police Department to report his wife as missing.

    “He said that [on March 13th] she’d taken off with her boyfriend,” Angie said. “He didn’t see her physically leave, which is weird because they lived in a small duplex, so she basically would have had to pass him in order to leave the house.”

    Dateline reached out to Jason Sypher for comment, but had yet to hear back as of Monday evening.

    Sypher’s disappearance hits one-year mark

    March 13, 2018

    Ault has repeatedly declined to say what, if any, evidence has been collected so far because the investigation is still ongoing, but when asked about the landfill search, last year he did say “we didn’t find everything we’re looking for.”

    “I absolutely understand the frustration felt by the public,” Ault said. “We share that frustration, but it’s important to know that there’s often a lot of activity going on with this case that the public just isn’t aware of.”

    Ault said he and other officers think they know what happened to Krista, and don’t believe she left the house “of her own accord,” but he has declined to elaborate.

    Preview 7 Investigates: The disappearance of Krista Sypher

    More than one year after a Plover wife and mother of three went missing, 7 Investigates looks into the disappearance of Krista Sypher.

    "Very confident that we'll be able to talk about it and be able to provide all the explanation in the future. Including why I'm not able to talk about it now,” Plover Police Chief Dan Ault said. “I have no intention of leaving this an unanswered question. And this police department is committed to making sure this is answered."

    As the investigation continues, Sypher's two best friends say they are dedicated to making sure she is found and will always continue to search for her.

    “Want to be her voice because she's not here to speak for herself. She needs to be found. We need to figure out what happened to her,” Amber Haferman said.

    “Just kind of get the word out there. It's like, she would do it for us," Angie Sheehan-Zoromski added.

    Jason Sypher, Krista’s Husband: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know


    The release says that on September 3, it’s expected that Sypher will appear and [sic] court to face charges of First Degree Intentional Homicide and Hiding a Corpse.
    Investigators had long maintained that they did not believe that Krista had left her home of her own accord.
    The Point/Plover Metro Wire reports that Jason Sypher has since moved from the home where his wife was last seen.

    In April 2018, WSAW reported that contrary to online rumors, Jason Sypher had not lost custody of the couple’s children. Krista’s family said that the children’s grandparents were legal guardians as Jason Sypher commonly worked out of town and had done so for years. In the same report, a member of Krista’s family called allegations against Jason Sypher, “painful and wrong.”

    Speaking to the Green Bay Press Gazette later, Chief Ault said that he was “glad” officers had conducted the landfill search but still refused to say what evidence, if any, officers had recovered. The search was conducted my [sic] multiple agencies working teams of 20. In the conclusion of that article, Chief Ault said, “It’s only a matter of time. I stated that in the beginning (of the investigation), and I stand by that statement.”

    Krista Sypher case: Husband accused of dumping evidence in wife's disappearance

    Jason Sypher bought large, black plastic trash bags on the day his wife was last seen and left his fingerprints on a shopping bag containing his wife's discarded and damaged cellphone, according to police.

    Investigators have not found Krista Sypher's remains in the 17 months since she was last seen, but they gradually built a case against her husband before they arrested him Friday and accused him of killing her, according to a newly released criminal complaint.

    Authorities apprehended Jason Sypher, 44, near the Wisconsin-Illinois border. He appeared in court via video conference Monday afternoon. His attorney, Gary Kryshak, said the case built against Jason Sypher is the weakest he's seen in years.

    Judge rules there is enough evidence to send Jason Sypher to trial

    Jason Sypher, accused of killing his wife Krista Sypher and hiding her body, appeared in court Monday where a judge ruled there is enough evidence to send his case to trial.

    Prosecutors lay out their case in court documents, filed soon after his arrest. They argue Jason was abusive in their relationship, and lied about his activities on the day Krista went missing. They say evidence, including a K9 indicating the presence of decomposing tissue in their home and in Jason's car, the fact that Jason threw away Krista's cell phone, Jason's purchase of trash bags the day of her disappearance, and car GPS data showing Jason driving to dumpsters all point to his guilt.

    Jason's attorneys responded to the Prosecutor's case in court today. They dismissed the K9's findings because the dog indicated spots that were heavily trafficked by Krista. They say there is no video footage that shows Jason dumping a bag big enough to fit a body in a dumpster, and asserted that there is no physical evidence, and no body to suggest a crime was committed.

    In the end, the Judge sided with the Prosecution, and agreed that there was enough evidence to send Jason to trial, to face charges of homicide and hiding a corpse.
