Wife of missing Baltimore County man found dead speaks out: "My husband is gone"

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (WBFF) -- A Baltimore County man missing since last weekend is now the focus of what's being called a suspicious death, after his body is found in the city. His wife is now in disbelief and she's speaking out exclusively to Fox45.

The man's name is Charles Allen, 36. He was an MTA bus driver and dispatcher. He was a husband and father of three girls, who went missing and his wife needs answers.

Speaking from the couple's home in Owings Mills, Shonetta Allen was a grieving and confused wife--baffled over the death of her husband.

"He's gone, that's all I can tell you. My husband is gone," said Allen.

Baltimore City Police discovered the body of Charles Allen Wednesday evening sitting in the driver seat of his car, which was parked on W. Garrison Ave. near Poe Avenue.

Police say Allen was last seen at Horseshoe Casino Saturday night we're friends say he was celebrating his birthday.

His wife says she last saw her husband that morning. The next day, when he did not return home and calls to his cell phone were not answered, she called Baltimore County Police to report him missing.

"I did that because I knew something was wrong," said Allen as tears flowed down her cheeks. "Because he calls every single day, he checks on his family. He loves his family, he's a loving man, he loves his family, he loves us," said Allen.

The cause of Allen's death is still unknown. Police are investigating. But his wife suspects foul play.

"Something is wrong, something's wrong, something went wrong," said Allen.

We're told Allen's car had been parked on that block and had not been moved for days before someone finally called the police.
