Maya 'May' Millete: California missing mom-of-three gave chilling warning, family reveals bloody ALTAR photo
Maya, known as May to those close to her, is said to have told her family, 'If anything happened to me, it would be Larry'
CHULA VISTA, CALIFORNIA: Almost three months after a California woman went missing, her family and their lawyer have revealed a series of chilling details about her troubled marriage before she vanished. As the latest details come to light, it reveals how her husband sent some disturbing bloody alter pictures to her family, when she was alive.
Maya Millette, 39, disappeared on January 7, 2021, the same day that she made an appointment with a divorce attorney for the following week. Maya's brother-in-law, Richard Drouaillet, stated that marriage troubles between her and her husband, Larry Millete, began long before then though, claiming Larry constantly reached out to Maya's family to try to enlist their help in fixing their relationship throughout 2020.
"He was more of an aggressor, trying to get us involved," Drouaillet told Fox News. "He was trying to get us on his side, when we felt like it was a lot of lies that he was telling us." He recalled one nearly hour-long phone call summer of 2020 in which Larry sought his advice. "He just sounded desperate, you know, 'You gotta listen to me. It's her fault, it's her fault,'" Drouaillet said.
Maya has not been seen since she vanished in Chula Vista. Maya, who has three children, ages four, nine and 11, last spoke to her family shortly before 8 pm on January 7 from her home in Paseo Los Gatos in San Diego County. Now, a member of Maya's family has anonymously revealed to Fox News that she made a worrying warning while on vacation with loved ones. Maya, known as May to those close to her, is said to have told her family: "If anything happened to me, it would be Larry."
Despite Maya's disturbing warning to family members, Chula Vista Police Department say no evidence of a crime has been found and there are no suspects. Spokesman Eric Thunberg told the news outlet: "We certainly have people who remain crucial witnesses to her disappearance. We are in frequent communication with our regional partners about this case and are working to identify evidence, locate it, analyze it and follow where it leads. We understand and recognize the sense of frustration from Maya’s family and the community."
Billy Little, an attorney at the Cold Case Foundation who's working with Maya's family on the case, said Larry allowed him to walk through their house on January 11, just two days after the family lodged a missing complaint. "The windows were all open, the fans were on full blast, it was a little chilly. It looked like he had been cleaning," Little told Fox News Saturday. "I talked to him a little bit, I asked if I could see the bedroom. I went up to the bedroom, that's when I saw the ... hole in the door, right next to the door handle."
Larry allegedly blamed the hole in the door on Maya.
While according to an NBC report, Maya's sister Maricris Drouaillet told NBC7 that she and her husband saw "a lot of arguments" between the couple on the camping trip in January, "We felt sometimes uncomfortable about it, too," she said. "But you know, we were just praying and hoping they would be able to work it out. We didn’t see this coming, you know, after that."
The messages that Larry sent to Maya's family grew more bizarre throughout 2020, Maya's family said. In September 2020 he sent a picture to one of Maya's family members that appears to show an altar with the couple covered in blood splatter and surrounded by candles, according to Little. "He did some extreme sh**," Drouaillet said. Larry did not respond to multiple questions about the picture of the altar.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help fund the search for Maya, with more than $15,000 so far donated. The page reads: "Maya is a dedicated mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and civil servant and we are doing everything we can to find her and bring her home to her family.
"Both of her cars have been at her home since she's been missing and her phone is turned off and has not been located. A missing persons police report has been filed with the Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD) and her case is currently open and is being investigated." The investigation into her disappearance is ongoing.
