At the time of the crime, Peter and Quee were reported missing. However, when authorities caught up to Peter, the accused killer claimed that someone else killed his wife and forced him to load her body into a car and drive it to the Mexican border. Peter later admitted to detectives that he made up the story.

The terrifying husband ultimately pleaded not guilty to murder and posted $1 million bail. Peter had to surrender his passports and was expected to live with his father while awaiting trial. However, in 2015, authorities learned that Peter had disappeared after he skipped out on a court appearance.


According to reports, authorities searched Peter's home and found reading materials on how to live on the run. He was then suspected of fleeing the United States.

A press conference will be held by the Orange County District Attorney's Office and the Newport Beach Police Department on Aug. 6 for an update in his shocking capture.
