Starina Marie Woods was last seen at her residence in Charleston, West Virginia. This incident occurred on March 10, 2016. She and her husband, Arthur “Owen” Woods, had just moved from Mount Lookout, West Virginia. They moved to a new house on Lance Drive in Charleston. They had a “heated” domestic dispute at home the day she vanished. It turned Owen admits became violent, and she has never been heard from again.

Owen used Starina’s debit card multiple times after her disappearance and also sold her car. He didn’t report his wife missing. He told a neighbor Starina had moved to Oklahoma. And he told police she’d stolen $29,000 from his bank account and run away to Ecuador with her ex-husband.

Starina had communicated on Facebook with a male friend, saying her relationship with Owen was abusive. In her Facebook conversations with the man, Starina speculated about taking money from Owen’s bank accounts and said she wanted to go to Ecuador with the man. However, she had never previously left the country and she didn’t have a passport at the time of her disappearance.

The man she was communicating with was later interviewed by police. He said he never personally met Starina and she stopped contacting him in March, and there is no record of a $29,000 withdrawal from Owen’s accounts.

Starina’s cell phone was never used after March 11, 2016. However, someone used her debit card to make purchases and pay bills. One of the things purchased was minutes for a pre-pay phone. The purchase was made on Owen’s work computer.

Family members reported Starina missing on May 19, 2016, over two months after she was last seen. Investigators subsequently found a significant amount of blood at the couple’s home, some of which was visible to the naked eye, but most of which was not, because someone had cleaned up. There were bloodstains on the front door, on the stairs and in the living room.

Police are investigating Starina’s disappearance as a probable homicide. Owen is the prime suspect. However, he hasn’t faced any charges in her case. Starina left behind two children. Both of them were living in Virginia at the time of her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.

Starina Marie Woods has been missing for three years. Over three years have gone by and her loved ones have not seen anyone face charges in her case. Those who know Woods believe they know who did it. But police apparently don’t have the evidence to connect the husband with his missing wife’s disappearance and presumed murder. The hard truth truth is the legal system is more about provable facts and hard evidence, not criminal justice or getting convictions.
