UPDATE: Tessa Turner has been located and is safe.
ROCHESTER HILLS, MI – A 49-year-old man with an alleged violent past is searching for his missing 26-year-old fiancee’.
Timothy Franzel, in 1988, who was 19-years-old at the time, was charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and faced up to 10 years in prison if convicted for the assault of his then girl friend.
Police at that time in 1988 said Franzel arrived home the night of March 4 and began the attack after accusing his girlfriend Angela Spencer of sleeping with his best friend, and of having an abortion after becoming pregnant by Franzel.
Based on information from UPI, Angela Spencer told police Franzel punched and kicked her to the floor, then handcuffed her and attacked her with a carving knife and soldering iron. She suffered stab wounds to an arm and leg, a cut through her right ear that required 50 stitches, and her fingernails were sliced, police said.
Timothy (Johnnie) Frazel posted a heart wrenching plea on Facebook for anyone to read that his 26-year-old girlfriend Tessa Lynne Stocks-Turner is missing and he is asking for help to locate her.
The circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Tessa Stocks are suspect.
Johnnie posted the following to Facebook:
Sitting here sick, been driving Oakland county, Macomb county, and Lord knows I beat up Wayne county, I’m running empty, haven’t ate for two days because of the thought she hasn’t eaten either ?
Her (Mother) Barbie and boyfriend Keith, gave me clothing and a shower and they drove me around searching for the white suburban, they tired, because they also have been searching since she has gone missing.
But my pure worry and fear of the worse pushed me further last night,it felt like I drove endlessly, using my street smarts to guide me.
Made a few threats, cried, screamed, all in all I just truly want my baby girl alive and well.
We live in a sick twisted world, this is what eats me alive the most…
Tessa’s mother put me to sleep on her couch, I got about three hours of sleep, house is quiet and I’ve been staring out of this window for about an hour now, My phone won’t stop ringing, praying she pulls in the driveway…
Love is a great force, and right now it feels like it’s killing me slowly…
