TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Toledo couple is behind bars in Indiana while Toledo Police search for the man they now believe was murdered.

Ypsilanti man Brian Martin was last seen in Toledo on June 22, when he was in the city to coach a softball game. Once his family reported him missing, TPD executed a search warrant at the home of Desirae Strauss, the married woman Martin had been seeing.

"We actually were able to enter the house and see that there had been some alterations done to the house," said TPD Det. Vince Mauro.

Evidence found in the house suggests that Martin was bludgeoned to death inside Strauss' home on Consaul Street in east Toledo. Police believe Strauss and her husband Robert then took off and dumped the body somewhere between Toledo and Anderson, Indiana before they were arrested on unrelated charges.

"Some of the statements and some of the people we've interviewed have indicated that possibly he may be in a rural area," Det. Mauro said.

The Strausses are currently being held in an Indiana jail, but Toledo Police have filed murder charges against the couple.

TPD is working with other police departments, and they're asking the public to check their property for anything suspicious.

"We would ask, obviously if they did come across something that they thought was suspicious…to call their local authorities, who in turn would contact the Toledo Police," Mauro said.

Patricia Anderson lives two doors down from the Strausses. She says she had one interaction with Robert Strauss and had an uneasy feeling about him.

"I got an uncomfortable feeling, and here this guy was like just a couple feet away from me," Anderson said. "He could have done anything."

    Deadly virus threatens local crawfish industry

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
