Jacque Waller's Husband Talks to Reporters

Cape Girardeau, MO (KSDK) - The husband of a missing mother of triplets says he's been the target of vandalism and even received threats from local police.

In an article published in The Southeast Missourian, Clay Waller says the Jackson Police Department should stop focusing its attention on him and look for his wife, Jacque Waller, who has been missing since June 1. The couple was in the midst of a divorce when Jacque disappeared. She was last seen near Clay Waller's home in Jackson.

Meanwhile, Jackson Police Department Chief James Humphreys called Waller's allegations "ludicrous."

The Jackson Police Department says Waller is a person of interest in the case, but has not declared him a suspect.

Clay Waller's attorney, Scott Reynolds, released a statement Wednesday reiterating his client's innocence:

"Clay misses Jackie [sic]; he is saddened and shocked by her disappearance. He hopes and prays for her safe return and his heart goes out to the Rawson family despite their repeated accusations against him. Clay is not responsible for his wife's disappearance and we have substantial evidence to support that claim. We will not comment on the evidence at this point as there is an ongoing police investigation. It is sufficient to state that the police do not consider Clay a 'suspect' in Jackie's [sic] disappearance and they have repeatedly said there is no evidence that a crime was even committed here."

Waller also told the newspaper his truck has been vandalized and he was recently shot in the leg with a pellet gun.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
