Andre McDonald was arrested and charged with the murder of his wife, businesswoman Andreen McDonald Saturday, after her remains were found on a Texas ranch and identified.
Andre McDonald, a 40-year-old Air Force Reserve officer, was arrested peaceably at his home in San Antonio, according to My San Antonio.
The remains of Andreen McDonald were found on a ranch on Specht Road east of Camp Bullis on the far North Side, the news outlet reported. She was reported missing March 1. The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office used dental records to identify the skeletal remains.
“The search for Andreen is officially over,” Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said during a press conference Saturday, according to KSAT. “We found her a few minutes ago. We took Andre McDonald into custody for the offensive of murder.”
Officials had been searching the area near the ranch where the remains were ultimately found on a 50-acre private property in the 600 block of Specht Road. Sheriff’s deputies were called out to the property at 7:30 p.m. Thursday after a person found a skull and other bones about 20 yards from the road. The property owner had asked his friend to search for cow bones.
“A gentleman that was out walking that area looking for cow bones stumbled upon the remains of Andreen McDonald,” Salazar told KSAT. “Of course, we didn’t know that it was her at first.”
She had been missing for about 130 days when the remains were discovered.
Andre McDonald had already been arrested once in the disappearance of his wife. He was accused of tampering with evidence March 2, the day after his wife was reported missing. He was released on $300,000 bail April 3 after his bail was reduced, the news outlet reported. On the new charges brought against him Saturday, his bail is set at $2 million.
Investigators discovered he purchased cans of gasoline, heavy duty trash bags, work gloves, a portable burn barrel, a shovel and an ax around the time Andreen McDonald went missing. He then tried to destroy the receipt, investigators told KSAT.
“He went to great lengths to destroy that receipt. We were able to recover it but that’s what led to the tampering with evidence charge,” Salazar said. “So, I think a lot of his behavior up to this point, along with some of the evidence that I won’t go too much into detail on, are what led to to this charge.”
During search warrants conducted at the McDonald’s home in Solitude Cove, investigators told news outlets the floor appeared to be recently cleaned. A red stain containing blood and human hair was found on a light switch, KSAT reported.
