The boyfriend of 21-year-old Bethany Anne Decker is charged with her 2011 disappearance on Monday. Bethany, a student of George Mason University, had been pregnant five months before she suddenly went missing on January 29, 2011, in Loudon County, Virginia. According to WUSA9, Bethany lived with her boyfriend, 40-year-old Ronald Roldan, in her Ashburn apartment; at the same time, her husband, Emile Decker, was deployed in Afghanistan. After her disappearance, investigators learned that Bethany had been in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend. Consequently, Ronald, the father of Bethany’s unborn child, would be the last person to see her alive.
