Last week's announcement by investigators that the Rachel Good case had been upgraded to homicide came as no surprise to her family.

"We've known for a while that we're looking for a body," her brother Adam Good said Wednesday.

The 20-year-old woman disappeared from Elkton. She was ten weeks pregnant, according to family, last October.

"On my mother's behalf, on my grandmother's behalf, my grandfather's, all the immediate family, it's just been, it's been hell," Adam Good said, describing the last ten months.

Adam Good says his sister was having an affair with then-Elkton police officer Adam Williams when she disappeared. In fact, Good says Williams was the father of his sister's unborn baby.

On Wednesday, Elkton Police Chief Richard Pullen told TV-3 that Williams headed their missing person investigation before Virginia State Police took over the case.

"He went down to my mother and my grandmother and said, ‘Well, what does she look like? Can you describe her?’” Adam Good said, describing a meeting his family had with Williams shortly after Rachel disappeared.

"But at the same time his report didn't include any information like where she was last seen," he added. "Do we have some friends, or some friends' phone numbers?"

Pullen said Wednesday that Williams worked Goods' missing person report because he was the officer on duty at the time it came in.

State Police executed a search warrant against Williams last December. At that time, they confirmed he was a "person of interest" in the investigation.

Investigators said Friday they have one primary suspect, but won't reveal who that is.

Adam Good says he still can't help but wait for his sister to come home.

"Pretty much still, today, we look to see her coming in the door. There's no closure."
