Catherine “Cati” Boyter-Blauvelt,22, went missing after her shift at a local pet store in October 2016 in Greeneville, South Carolina. Two days after her disappearance, Blauvelt was found in an abandoned home’s basement with multiple stab wounds. Investigators said her estranged husband, John Blauvelt, fled the state with his then 17-year-old girlfriend, Hannah Thompson. In July of this year, John Blauvelt,33, was apprehended by the U.S. Marshals in Medford, Oregon, after a six-year search and took him into custody.

Thompson,23, was also arrested after being accused of helping John on the day that his wife was killed and lying to police about his whereabouts. According to PEOPLE, she allegedly dropped him off at near the pet store where Catherine worked on the day she was killed.

John allegedly drove Catherine’s car to a parking lot to make it seem like it was abandoned and Thompson followed him in her car. A month after Catherine’s murder, the Simpsonville Police Department charged him with murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Thompson was also reported missing that same month and came home in December 2016 after telling her family that she wanted to return home.

Catherine’s family said there were signs of domestic violence between the couple before her death.

“We knew he had a temper; we knew he had threated her with a gun before. He was the only suspect in our mind. If they threaten you, they beat you, they hurt you, get away and stay away,” her mother Patricia Piver said to WSPA. 

I don’t care if they call you, ‘Hey, meet me. I just want to talk.’ Bring someone with you, meet them at a police station. Protect yourself. Always.”

The U.S. Army said Blauvert worked as a recruiter before fleeing the state and was accused of deserting the branch.

Thompson was charged with two counts of misprison or concealment of a felony, two counts of obstruction of justice, and one count of accessory after the fact. She was denied bond after her arrest on Wednesday.
