THE FORMER husband of missing Missouri mom Jacque Sue Waller has confessed to killing her, authorities revealed Thursday. James "Clay" Waller allegedly told his dad that he killed Jacque Sue Waller, 39, a mom of 5-year-old triplets, according to the Southeast Missourian. The pretty blonde was last seen June 1 after visiting her estranged husband at his home. Clay has been named a person of interest but Thursday's revelations were the first time an official
has said: he's the killer. Detectives all along have suspected foul play with the motive being the couple's bitter custody fight--and a hefty insurance policy on Jackie. Her car was found abandoned alongside a state highway in what police suspect may have been staged to look like a kidnapping. Jacque had just attended a divorce hearing, according to cops, and drove to Clay's to pick up her 5-year-old son, Maddox. But the child was not at the home when Jacque Waller arrived, and family members had said they believed her husband, a former police officer, lured her to the home to kill her.
Her sister Cheryl Brenneke said: "It was just his bait to get her to the house so he could kill her."
