Medical Conditions Decker was about four to five months pregnant at the time of her disappearance; her due date was August 7, 2011.

Details of Disappearance Decker was last seen in Loudoun County, Virginia on January 29, 2011. She lived in an apartment on Orchard Grass Terrace in Ashburn, Virginia.
Her husband was on leave from military duty in Afghanistan that month. They had been married about eighteen months and had a one-year-old son, who lived with Decker's parents. The couple took a vacation in Hawaii just before Decker's disappearance and returned to Virginia on January 28. Decker's husband returned to Afghanistan on February 4. She wasn't at the airport to see him off, which is uncharacteristic of her, but she and her husband had been having marital problems and her loved ones thought perhaps this was why she didn't say goodbye to him.
Her family reported her missing on February 19, after their numerous attempts to contact her were unsuccessful and they realized someone was impersonating her on her Facebook account. By then she'd been missing for approximately three weeks. Decker's car was found parked in her garage after her disappearance. There hasn't been any activity on her bank accounts, email or cellular phone since she went missing.
Decker was dating Ronald Roldan at the time of her disappearance. They had been living together for two months and he was the last person to see her, and he was the father of her unborn child. Decker's family said she'd told them he was controlling and abusive, and that he'd threatened to "cut her open."
In March 2015, Roldan was charged with the attempted murder of another girlfriend; he brutally beat her and shot her three times, and she broke her neck and lost an eye. In 2016, he pleaded guilty to reduced felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury and assault inflicting serious bodily injury in that case, and was sentenced to six to eight years in prison. He was expected to be deported to his native Bolivia after his release in November 2020.
Late that month, only the day before Roldan's projected release date, authorities announced they were charging him with abduction in Decker's case. A photo of Roldan is posted with this case summary. In December, Roldan was additionally charged with second-degree murder in her case. He is awaiting trial.
Since Decker went missing, there's no activity on her bank or email accounts or her cellular phone, no evidence that she left the country and no records indicating she's given birth. Her husband has since returned from Afghanistan and taken custody of their child. Her mother hopes she's still alive, but foul play is suspected in her disappearance due to the circumstances involved.
