Missing Minnesota Mom Madeline Kingsbury, a 26-year old woman who mysteriously vanished in March has been found by police. The father and her former partner have both been arrested.
The family is hopeful that they will find Madeline. Rebecca Jacobson, Kingsbury’s aunt, made the statement in a Fox News Digital.
Winona Police Department reported that Adam Fravel, Kingsbury’s ex-partner and father of her children, was arrested after human remains were discovered at Mable, Minnesota, on Wednesday, 6th June.
Kingsbury’s dad said, “We have been informed that Adam has been taken into custody”, in a Fox News Digital statement.
Fravel, 29 years old, was listed in the Winona County Sheriff’s Office’s jail roster Wednesday. It noted that he was being held under suspicion of Second-degree Murder.
In a post on Facebook, the department stated that a body had been found in a brushy area off Highway 43. The information gathered during the investigation was used to locate it.
“As a result, members of law enforcement arrested Adam Fravel for probable cause in relation to her disappearance.” Winona Police wrote on Facebook.
Police said that law enforcement agencies are trying to positively identify the remains.
Winona Police chief Tom Williams said previously that Kingsbury’s disappearance is believed to be both “involuntary” and “suspicious,” adding police are “concerned about her safety.”
Fravel was last to see her alive on the 31st of March. He claimed innocence in the past, saying he had “nothing to do” with Maddi’s disappearance.
Fravel stated in an April statement that “over the past 12 days, my family and myself have been the subject of a multitude of accusations regarding disappearance of mother of my children.” “I had nothing to do with Maddi’s disappearance.”
Fravel, who has two children aged 2 and 5, has been fighting in court to get custody of them since Kingsbury disappeared.
Fox News Digital obtained court documents that detail Fravel’s refusal to cooperate with Child Protection Services when attempting reclaim the custody of these children.
A petition filed by Winona County Health and Human Services on April 4 alleges that “at one point (Fravel), took the younger child inside the residence and then locked the door, despite having been told the children were under the care and custody Winona County.”
“While (Fravel), was in the house with the younger child a social worker heard (Fravel), shouting expletives.”
According to the petition, Fravel refused to allow social workers to see the children during the encounter on April 4. He was said to be “non-cooperative”.
According to a court document, that was the day Fravel had a tense volatile standoff when social workers and the police tried to take custody of his children, aged two and five. Fravel did not have any custodial right.
Her family rallied the community to keep searching for her mother, Kingsbury.
Kingsbury’s family expressed their “distraughtness” at the news that Fravel was arrested. They also said that it “hit home all at once.”
