Tricia Todd Update: Former Husband Charged With Cutting Up Her Remains

Leigh Egan

A 30-year-old Air Force veteran who went missing last month in Palm Beach, Florida, was likely chopped up with a chainsaw by her ex-husband, an Air Force Staff Sergeant.

People reports that on Friday, Martin County Sheriff William Snyder announced that Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven Williams, of North Carolina, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murdering his former wife, Tricia Todd. He's also charged with child neglect after leaving their 2-year-old daughter alone, at the scene of the crime.

"I will put this man on a slow bus to Death Row because in the end, this is a premeditated murder."
"We will not be satisfied until we find all of her remains."
"He said he shoved her, she hit her head and then he placed her body somewhere out in the wilderness and wasn't sure whether she was dead or alive."

Williams said the incident occurred after arguing with his wife at a bed-and-breakfast, and after Todd hit her head on "something," he put her in his vehicle. Their 2-year-old daughter, Faith, was likely witness to the event. Williams said he left his daughter behind at the inn and he took his wife to the state preserve. However, Williams has changed his story numerous times, and Snyder now thinks that that they may never know exactly what happened unless all of Todd's remains are found, which so far has proven to be a difficult task.

"Based on the current conditions of the remains, we may never know how she died. It depends on the state of the other remains, if found. Because of the way the dogs were alerting, we need to expand out until we find a chainsaw or murder weapon.

"We thought we would come out here and find her buried remains. There was no way we could have anticipated this."

"I do believe, based on what transpired out here yesterday and where we are today, that he did not comply with the terms of the agreement."
