A 25-year-old Fort Worth woman had just told her ex-boyfriend “that it was over” less than an hour before she went missing this week, according to a jail affidavit released by police Thursday.
A bra “stretched out as if pulled apart,” a woman’s shirt and a broken smart watch were later found in the ex-boyfriend’s backyard, the affidavit said.
Authorities are still searching for Typhenie Johnson, who was last seen at the Post Oak East apartments in far east Fort Worth, near Texas 360 and Trinity Boulevard, about 9 p.m. Monday.
Christopher Revill, the ex-boyfriend mentioned in the affidavit, was arrested on Tuesday and faces a kidnapping charge.
When police met with him Monday night, he was “sweating excessively,” despite the cool temperature of about 65 degrees, the affidavit said.
Earlier that night, Revill and Johnson were seen by her brother talking outside her apartment about 9 p.m.
The two had dated for about eight months, but Johnson broke up with Revill two months ago, the affidavit said.
Anyone with information about Typhenie Johnson whereabouts is asked to contact police at 817-392-4430.
During their talk Monday, Johnson told Revill “that it was over,” the affidavit said.
After about 20 minutes, they moved their conversation to the side of the apartment building, out of sight of Johnson’s brother and her current boyfriend, who were watching from her apartment.
After another 20 minutes, Revill came to Johnson’s apartment and “collected some items,” the affidavit said.
When Johnson’s brother asked where his sister went, Revill told him she “left with someone who was going to fix her vehicle.”
Revill then left the apartment.
About five minutes later, Johnson’s brother went downstairs to look for her. When he walked around the corner of the building, he saw Revill’s car had been moved from the parking lot and was backed onto a yard area of grass and dirt.
Johnson’s brother also noticed that Revill’s trunk was open. He saw Revill close the trunk and drive out of the apartment complex, according to the affidavit.
When Johnson’s brother walked over to where Revill’s car had been parked, he found his sister’s sock and cell phone. Her car keys were also later discovered in the parking lot, police said.
After about 15 minutes, Revill remained gone, so Johnson’s brother called Fort Worth police. An officer arrived and called Revill, telling him he needed to return to the complex.
Revill arrived back at the apartments about 25 minutes later. He told police the heat caused him to sweat, but the officers noted that the temperature was “very cool and that no one should be sweating” like Revill was.
Officers then compared Revill’s tires with the impressions left in the grass and dirt area at the apartment complex, and they “appeared the match,” the affidavit said.
There were also shoe impressions in the same area that matched Revill’s shoes.
Clothes at Revill’s home
Officers then went to Revill’s home. In his backyard, they found the stretched-out bra, the woman’s shirt, the broken watch and a man’s tank top, according to the affidavit.
Revill’s parents, who were not home during the time Johnson went missing, told police those items did not belong to them. They said those items had not been in the yard before, according to the affidavit.
During interviews with detectives, Revill denied harming Johnson and denied parking in the grass where Johnson’s belongings were found.
Revill remained in Mansfield jail Thursday with his bail set at $50,000.
Johnson’s family has declined to speak to the media and planned to release a statement later Thursday, police said.
Anyone with information of her whereabouts is asked to contact police at 817-392-4430.
