Circumstances

Darshanand Persaud and Kristine Kupka’s relationship cooled for a time. However, he resurfaced in Kupka’s life shortly before her October 1998 disappearance. Kupka told friends he appeared on her doorstep and claimed his wife had thrown him out of the house and he was staying with a cousin.

It is not clear whether Kupka believed Persaud’s story, but she told her family that she encouraged him to reconcile with his wife. Persaud apparently became more supportive of the pregnancy at the time, suggesting names for the baby and offering to be the birthing coach, which confused Kupka given his earlier attitude.

The reason behind Persaud’s visit to Kupka’s house on October 24 is not clear. Her loved ones stated that Kupka believed she was going to view his new apartment, while Persaud maintained that he was driving her to a nearby shopping mall.

Kupka’s family was alerted to her disappearance by her roommate, who became concerned she Kupka failed to return to her residence that evening. Kupka’s family located Persaud’s home and confronted him about Kupka’s whereabouts. Persaud’s mother alerted her son to the family’s arrival and the police were called to prevent an altercation in case an incident arose.

Persaud told the family members that he drove Kupka to a shopping center, then waited in his car for her to return from shopping. Persaud claimed that he dropped Kupka off two blocks from her home between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m., as she wanted to walk to a nearby health food store. When Kupka’s family asked him which shopping mall he had taken her to, he said he did not know and he had stayed in the car while she shopped.

Kupka’s loved ones then questioned people in the neighborhood. A laundromat owner said he thought he had seen her walking past the establishment, and the proprietor of an area health food store said she might have seen her at approximately 7:00 p.m. the day of her disappearance. Later the health food store owner changed her mind and decided the woman she saw was not Kupka, since the woman was wearing peach-colored pants, which Kupka did not own.

Authorities have questioned Persaud just once, shortly after Kupka’s disappearance. He hired an attorney a few days later and has not granted any further interviews. The Kupka family has since employed a private investigator and continues to publicize her case. The investigator has stated publicly that he believes Persaud was involved in her disappearance.

Persaud has never been charged in connection with Kupka’s case and he maintains his innocence. Authorities have said that he was cooperative during his single interview, but have also mentioned that he did not have an alibi for the time Kupka vanished and they felt he was evasive at times during the questioning.

Detectives have stated that there is little in the way of physical evidence to prove what happened to Kupka and nothing linking Persaud to her disappearance beyond motive, but they believe she was the victim of a homicide.

In 2010, police began digging up the basement floor of a shop once owned by one of Persaud’s relatives. One section of the concrete was not like the others, and a cadaver-sniffing dog indicated the presence of human remains. Nothing was found in the search, however.

Kupka is a native of Madison, Wisconsin. She is also a graduate of Malcolm Shabazz High School. This was an alternative school. She attended the University of Wisconsin prior to moving to New York City, but dropped out of there and later re-enrolled at Baruch College. She has also lived in Atlanta, Georgia. Her case remains unsolved.
