There was intimate partner violence in Venus’s marriage. In the summer of 2008, Venus filed for an order of protection against Doug. She stated that he had abused her and threatened their children. And she was afraid, she said, for her life. Doug denied these allegations. And he requested a protective order against Venus. He claimed that she was guilty of domestic violence toward him. In October 2008, both orders were dismissed. But this was before Venus and Doug moved to Virginia. She filed for another protective order against Doug. That, too was denied.

Doug’s Vehicles

It was in Virginia where authorities found both of Doug’s vehicles. And they found bloodstains in both of them. The blood belonged to Douglas, not Venus. Inside Doug’s truck was some rope. Authorities also found twine and a receipt from a Walmart store in Ohio. That receipt was for the purchase of a tarp, a shovel, a cap, and gloves. These purchases were dated the day before Venus’s disappearance. Tire tracks found at the abduction scene matched the tread on Douglas’s truck tires as well.

More Investigation
