Husband Faces Murder Trial Over Missing Wife

Would you go to work the day your spouse went missing? That’s what investigators are asking in a case involving Victoria Prokopovitz, who has been missing since 2013. Her body has never been found and she is believed to be dead. 

James Prokopovitz reported his wife missing to the Sheriff’s Office, after he returned home from work that day. According to reports, Prokopovitz made no mention of his wife’s absences at work.

Prokopovitz told police it was likely a suicide because his wife suffered from depression, but family members say his behavior after her disappearance became highly suspicious.

“At the end of the day, a jury is going to sit there and try to put themselves in his shoes. They’re going to have a tough time saying: if my wife, who was ill, and was gone without her purse and personal effects…I think most people would have a hard time saying they’d go to work, especially if your boss gets on the stand and says he didn’t have to be there that day! His defense team has their work cut out for them.”
