Apache Junction police say that Renae Dee Gardner may have been the girlfriend of 51-year-old Keith Long, who was found murdered in San Tan Valley the day after she was reported missing. They have not confirmed whether or not they believe the missing woman is alive or if she was also a possible of foul play like her slain boyfriend. They have also not commented on how long Keith Long had been dead when his body was found near a canal in San Tan Valley. What is known for a fact at this time is that Keith Long's murder is unsolved with no confirmed suspects or persons of interest in his case.
Reports have not indicated whether or not it's in Renae Gardner's character to go missing for any period of time, but it appears that police are treating this case with urgency -- and most likely due to her apparent connection to homicide victim Keith Long.
