February 13, 2020 — Beverly in custody!

Detective Sergeant Josh Ivey of the Eaton County Sheriff’s department told me last month that he was sure Beverly McCallum–wanted for the 2002 murder and mutilation of her husband, Roberto Caraballo–would be found. It was just a matter of time. “They don’t get away often,” he said.

He and I agreed, I taking my cue from the idea that there is nothing hidden that shall not be made known. The whereabouts of an accused killer would fall into that realm. It seemed obvious to both of us that that she would slip up and be found.

She did and she was. Here’s today’s Detroit Free Press article on the same.

She has been on the run with her teenaged son since she vanished from Pakistan. There was even a report that she had made it as far as South America. But no. Rome.

There are so many stories that will come out as she is brought back to face justice. Yes, our film Jack in the Box and this web played a significant role, but it’s the dogged determination of law enforcers who had led this case the Beverly’s apprehension and the so-far prosecution of Christopher McMillan (who pled guilty) and the binding over to face charges of first-degree murder for Beverly’s daughter Dineane Ducharme.

That part of the story starts with a phone call that Detective Bob Donker, now retired from the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department, received in 2015.

And it’s there I’ll leave it for now. While I may know some things, just because I may be aware does mean that it’s mine to tell. There is one thing that is mine to tell: there have been so many people praying for justice in this case. So many. I believe we have just witnessed another miracle.
