If you've seen 53-year-old Wade Ridley, call the cops. He may know something about the murder of his ex-girlfriend.
The Phoenix Police Department is asking the public's help in tracking down a man it's referring to as an "investigative lead" in the murder of a Phoenix woman yesterday.

Investigators are looking for 53-year-old Wade Ridley, the ex-boyfriend of 62-year-old Anne Marie Simenson, who was found murdered in her Phoenix home yesterday afternoon.

Phoenix police spokesman Sergeant Steve Martos tells New Times Ridley is not be confused with Simenson's current boyfriend, with whom she lived and is not currently considered a suspect.

About 4 p.m. yesterday, Phoenix police were called to a house in the 28600 block of North 46th Place regarding "unknown trouble."

When they got there, officers found Simenson's body with obvious signs of trauma. She later died.

Cops are also still looking for Simenson's car, which authorities believe may have been taken by someone involved in -- or a witness to -- the murder.

The car is described as a red 2005 Toyota Solera convertible with a black top and Arizona plate number C9590.

If you've seen the car, call the cops -- but don't approach the occupants, they could be dangerous.

Looks like that order of protection against Wade didn't do any good. Someone cue Goodbye Earl, a compelling way to deal with dangerously abusive boyfriends.

if the cops dont hear from this guy in a few more days you will know he is guilty of the crime. if he was innocent he would get in touch with the cops and clear things up. i think he is the jealous ex boy friend killer. case solved.

he must have been pinched before in the past as that is a police mugshot.he looks guilty to me, look into his eyes. he has that bad guy greasy unwashed guilty hood criminal look. the short hair clean shaven look a perfect thing to hide the evil that lurks inside his dark soul. clean shaven short haired yuppie males are a violent breed. they beat,rape,kill women and children and they use that clean cut yuppie look to hide behind. dont believe me? look at most police mugshots the men are mostly short haired and clean shaven yuppies. ladys you have been warned. date a guy with long hair and a beard if you want a nice cool mellow boyfriend. clean shaven short haired yuppie males are nothing but trouble.

I agree, the long hair and beard of Charles Manson was a tip that he was just a mellow dude.

This particular piece of work is anything buy a clean shaven yuppie. He looks more like a meth cooking Hells Angel motor scooter rider with a drinking problem

you mean he looks like a RUB / RICH URBAN BIKER. real bikers dont look like this guy but rubs do. most are from Scottsdale and are weekend warriors playing dress up biker tough guy on the weekends. they hang out at that rub bar the hideaway in cave creek and by the looks of the ugly plastic fake people there i dont blame them for wanting to hide them away at the hideaway. real bikers are over at the steel horse saloon at 19th ave and bell road. rubs are to scared to go there.
