Husband Charged with Murder of Crystal Lynch Despite Missing Body

Marquis Glasper is currently detained, facing charges in connection with the disappearance and alleged murder of his wife, Crystal Lynch. Despite the absence of Lynch’s body, legal experts indicate that this does not preclude a conviction. KPRC 2 Legal Analyst Brian Wice emphasized that the notion of ‘no body, no crime’ is outdated, citing the evolution of law, investigative techniques, and forensic science over centuries.

Lynch was reported missing by a family member on May 6. Investigations revealed that Glasper had examined his wife’s phone the night before her disappearance and discovered she was having an affair. Evidence found in the couple’s home and Lynch’s Jeep has been linked to Glasper, suggesting his involvement in the crime. Police reports indicate an attempt to clean up the crime scene. Additionally, a blank divorce form was found on Lynch’s bedside table, and a family member disclosed to the police that Glasper had previously threatened to harm Lynch if he found her cheating.

Wice highlighted the importance of ‘proof beyond a reasonable doubt’ in legal proceedings, explaining that such proof is necessary for crucial decisions, likening it to making significant life choices like purchasing a house or getting married. He further stated that circumstantial evidence could often be more compelling and powerful than direct evidence.

As the case progresses with Glasper in jail, Lynch’s family continues to hope for her discovery. Glasper is being held in the Harris County Jail without bond and faces charges of murder, tampering with evidence, and possession of a firearm by a felon.
