Bashara's purse and its contents were strewn about on her Mercedes' passenger side floor, the keys to the car were on the driver's side floor and there was "a prescription bottle" on the passenger seat, investigators said, according to WXYZ.
In the hours after she was found strangled in her SUV, her husband claimed to be distraught.
"It's unthinkable that this happened to her and what she had to suffer," Bob Bashara said. "I'm doing what I need to do to cooperate with the authorities, to find who did this to my wife."
But over the week since his wife's body was discovered, more questions about Bob Bashara have arisen.
Bashara reportedly told police that he talked to his wife on the phone the night that she disappeared, but cell phone records indicate that no phone calls between the two actually took place.
In addition, Bob Bashara may have had a girlfriend on the side. Police sources said they questioned a 50-year-old woman who worked at Wayne State University who said she dated him. Local ABC News reporters uncovered real estate documents that indicated Bashara may have been buying the woman a home.
