Missing woman's husband speaks

Ganesh Ramsaran, the husband of missing Jennifer Ramsaran of New Berlin, said Tuesday that he appreciates all the work police have done to find his wife, including the interrogation he underwent as detectives sought to solve the mystery.

Commenting on the ordeal that began Dec. 11 when he said he last saw his 36-year-old wife, Ganesh Ramsaran, a project manager for IBM, said: “It’s been a mental roller coaster. One minute I have hope. The next, I’m not so sure. I have to hold strong for the kids.”

He said he has cooperated with all requests made of him by investigators, including taking a polygraph examination that helps detectives determine if an interview subject is being evasive.

“I volunteered the user IDs and the passwords (for online accounts) for everything,” Ganesh Ramsaran told The Daily Star in an interview. “They took all of our computers. My life is an open book. I have nothing to hide.

“I always cooperate, and I will never hire a lawyer,” he added. “I’ve done nothing wrong.”

The husband said at times he fears his wife was abducted by a stranger. At other times, he said that he fears she took off to be alone, or to join a person she may have met while playing online games.

Ganesh Ramsaran, a fitness buff who runs in marathons, said in recent months his wife appeared to be depressed, and had begun to diet after her weight climbed to 210 pounds.

“Before she went missing, she lost 20 pounds,” he said. “Let’s just say it was not the healthy way (to lose weight).” When she dropped to 190 pounds, he said, it put her at her lowest weight since she first became a mother in 1999.

“There were lots of behavioral changes,” he said. “I was so proud of her that she was 190.”
