It’s been nearly six months since mom of three, Melissa Trumpy, has been seen. Her disappearance came shortly after she and her boyfriend at the time, 35-year-old Derek Hammer, were arrested at Trumpy’s home in Monticello, Wisconsin, for drug-related crimes. Trumpy had reportedly agreed to cooperate with investigators and serve as a witness against Hammer.
Since Trumpy vanished, Hammer was arrested for alleged bail jumping. Hammer served prison time in Nevada for battery by strangulation and possession of an explosive device, according to prison records. Authorities have not named Hammer as an investigative target in Trumpy’s disappearance.
