Deepening mystery: Missing woman’s husband found dead

CLARKSBURG, Mass. (AP) — The mystery of a missing Massachusetts woman has deepened after her husband apparently took his own life.

The Berkshire district attorney’s office says 42-year-old Charles Reidy was discovered dead of an apparent suicide inside the garage of his Clarksburg home last week by officers conducting a well-being check at the request of family.

Authorities did not disclose the cause of death.

Reidy’s wife, 39-year-old Joanne Ringer, has been missing since March 2.

Ringer was scheduled to start her first shift as a taxi driver in Easthampton the night she disappeared, but never showed up for work. Her car was found abandoned in Easthampton on March 6.

The couple married in December.
