Missing Pastor’s Wife Found Dead Inside Car in Arkansas. Foul Play Not Suspected

(Christian News) A vehicle belonging to Marilane Carter, the pastor’s wife who went missing earlier this month as she traveled from Kansas to visit family in Alabama, has been found in Arkansas with a deceased woman in the driver’s seat.

“With a heavy heart we share this update with everyone,” the Find Marilane Facebook page announced Tuesday evening. “Today Marilane’s vehicle was found in West Memphis, AR, in Crittenden County. A female was found deceased in the vehicle. Law enforcement says that foul play is not suspected.”

“We were looking for a vehicle and just never would have dreamed that her vehicle would have been inside of those,” he said.

Grooms, who outlined that the family is now grieving the loss, said that he was “hoping for a more positive outcome” such as that “maybe [she] had been somewhere getting some mental health treatment.”

As previously reported, Carter, 36, the wife of Leawood Baptist Church pastor Adam Carter, left her home on Aug. 1 to be present for the birth of her sister’s baby. She had purchased a plane ticket for the journey but decided last minute to travel by car instead.

Brother-in-law Brady McLaughlin told AL.com that Carter, who quietly struggled with mental health issues, planned on obtaining  help in Birmingham while visiting. Her husband said that she…
