But it wouldn't be until last Friday that police arrested her husband. Marks turned himself in to detectives at a Perkins. He's been charged with second-degree murder, and it seems that the cops have plenty of evidence against him.
When Kathy first went missing, her sister called police in Colorado to ask for a welfare check. An examination of her Fort Collins home quickly revealed a murder scene.
Detectives believe Kathy was likely killed in her bedroom, then Marks made a sloppy attempt to get rid of the evidence. Police found an 8-by-10-foot section of carpet cut away from the bedroom floor. There appeared to be blood splatter on a closet door and the place smelled of bleach.
Tammy Adams, Kathy's niece, also told detectives that she was on the phone with Kathy on October 8 when Marks came home. Kathy tried to hand up, but in the background Tammy could hear Marks yelling, "I'm going to fucking kill you. What the fuck are you doing?"
Further tests showed areas where the killer attempted to clean up blood. There were traces of blood around a washing machine and in sinks. The home had also been loaded up with various cleaning products. And detectives found a window covering that had the same pattern of the blanket used to wrap Kathy's body.
Just to make his behavior more suspicious, Marks was later caught on a motel security camera checking in under a false name and paying cash for his room.
