New details in Plover woman’s disappearance, husband’s arrest

Prosecutors are laying out the details for what they believe happened to a missing Plover mother.

Jason Sypher, husband of Krista Sypher, was arrested Friday near the Wisconsin/Illinois border in connection to the disappearance of his wife, according to officials.

According to a criminal complaint, Krista was last seen on March 13, 2017 leaving a Sun Tan City salon after dropping her children of at school. However, when Jason arrived home later that day, after running errands, Krista was gone, the complaint said. 

At 6:00 p.m. that day, the complaint says Jason bought "a package of iron-clad, 39-gallon black plastic trash bags with cash" and left.

Jason didn’t report Krista missing until March 20, per the complaint.

On March 23, Plover Police found a smashed rose gold iPhone 7 — tied to Krista’s phone number — in an Aeropostale shopping bag inside a dumpster. Police say the phone was "intentionally" damaged. 

Police also found a Coach watch — which Krista’s kids say she always would wear — hidden under the bed at their home, as well as items, including jewelry with "Mom" written on it, in the trash, per the complaint.

According to the complaint, on March 31 a search dog discovered human remains in "garbage bags full of women’s clothing, hanging clothing (Jason’s), master bed, drain in second floor bath tub, clean clothes in washing machine, inside cabinets below kitchen sink, Jason’s Ford F-150 (bed of truck and driver’s seat – car parked outside Plover Police Department at time of search)." 

Jason Sypher is expected in Portage County court Monday afternoon. 

News 9 will have a crew in the courtroom, and will update the story.
