MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) – Chris Jones denied he had anything to do with the disappearance of his wife Heather Palumbo-Jones, who was last seen Monday night. He spoke without emotion after a hearing for divorce proceedings for the couple.
"I loved that woman more than anything," Palumbo-Jones' husband Chris Jones said. "There's no way I've put my hands on her or ever put my hands on her."
Jones came across as a man seemingly blind-sided by his wife's desire for a divorce.
"We were a very happy beautiful family right up until the day before she decided to leave abruptly," Jones said.
Germantown police searched the area around the Palumbo-Jones residence, Wednesday. Police said the elementary school teacher has not made contact with her family, friends or co-workers since Monday.
Jones said he has been involved in the search for his wife.
