Woman last seen at FCC found deceased
Ex-husband has been preliminarily charged with murder
A woman employed in Portland was found dead Thursday in southeastern Delaware County and her ex-husband has been preliminarily charged with murder.
She had been missing for nearly two weeks.
Ceaser L. Curtis was arrested after Muncie police found the remains of Marcia Curtis, 46, at an abandoned property along county road 800 South on Thursday.
Curtis was being held without bond Friday in Delaware County Jail.
An autopsy on Marcia Curtis was performed Friday morning at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie. As of Friday afternoon, Delaware County coroner Gavin Greene said preliminary results were not yet available.
Muncie police administration did not respond to calls from The Commercial Review on Friday.
Marcia Curtis filed for divorce from Ceaser Curtis in December, and a decree of dissolution was issued March 28. Ceaser Curtis was charged in Randolph Superior Court in June with a Class A misdemeanor for invasion of privacy in the case of violating a protective order issued to prevent domestic or family violence or harassment. His criminal history includes charges for battery and operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
Ceaser Curtis posted to Facebook on Aug. 27 accusing his ex-wife of sleeping with other men. He shared more than 100 posts that same day from various sources, including a picture of a sweatshirt with the following words printed on it: “I’ll put you in the trunk and help people look for you don’t test me!”
Marcia Curtis’ family recently filed a missing person report with Muncie police. They shared several posts on Facebook regarding Marcia Curtis, who had been last seen leaving her workplace, FCC in Portland, on Sept. 1. She worked at FCC for about three months prior to her death.
Muncie Police Department is handling the investigation.
