Torso of missing mother found; husband sought in her slaying

first_imgAuthorities believed Grant was alive and in Michigan Saturday evening, Hackel said. Two handguns were found in the house during the search, but the sheriff said Grant was not believed to be armed. The Grants’ two children, a 6-year-old girl and a 4-year-old boy, were staying with relatives. Griem said his client last was in the Detroit area, but he did not know exactly where. Hackel said Grant was detained Friday, then returned to his home, let investigators inside and later left. Hackel said investigators didn’t have evidence at the time to hold him. Despite snow covering the ground, investigators found additional body parts during a search Saturday in and around Stony Creek Metropark, near the Grant home, Hackel said. About 100 law enforcement personnel participated in the search, he said. Hackel declined to release details about the body parts that were found, but said they may have been scattered in an attempt to hide them. “They were in various locations,” he said. Tara Grant worked as an operations manager for Washington Group International of Boise, Idaho, an engineering and construction firm with an office in the Detroit suburb of Troy. Her job regularly sent her to Puerto Rico. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Investigators found what is believed to be the torso of a mother of two who disappeared last month and sought her husband as the suspect in her slaying, authorities said Saturday. The husband was suicidal, his lawyer said. The torso was found in the garage of the home shared by Tara and Stephen Grant in suburban Washington Township, Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said. Additional body parts were found Saturday at a public park near the home, he said. Tara Grant, 34, has been missing since Feb. 9. Stephen Grant, 37, reported her missing five days later. Police say that on the day she went missing, the Grants argued over her frequent business trips abroad. An arrest warrant was issued Saturday charging Grant with murder, and disinterment and mutilation, Hackel said. “He is the No. 1 and at this time the only suspect in the murder of Tara Lynn Grant,” Hackel said at a news conference earlier Saturday in Mount Clemens. Throughout the search, Stephen Grant has maintained his innocence. His lawyer, David Griem, told The Associated Press on Saturday that he spoke twice with his client earlier in the day and hoped to arrange for Grant to turn himself in. “Whatever he did – and it appears that it was something terrible – sometimes good people snap and do something very, very bad,” Grant’s attorney David Griem told The Associated Press. “This is someone (who) every time I talked to him, his foremost concern was with his children.” last_img read more
