Details of Disappearance
Armstrong’s family last heard from her sometime in July 2011. She lived in Kokomo, Indiana in a trailer with her boyfriend, Travis Funke, and their young child. A photo of Funke is posted below this case summary. In September 2011, Armstrong’s sister became concerned because she hadn’t heard from her in a long time. Whenever she called the house, Funke would provide various excuses as to why Armstrong was unable to talk to her. Her sister visited Armstrong’s local hangouts and talked to her friends and neighbors, and realized no one had seen or heard from her. She asked the police to conduct a welfare check, but they were unable to get in touch with Armstrong either. Her sister then reported her missing on September 26.

The following day, the police went to Funke and Armstrong’s residence with a search warrant and found bloodstained carpeting, but no sign of Armstrong, Funte or their son. They did not declare the trailer to be a crime scene at that time. On September 28, Funke was arrested on unrelated charges. He had been under house arrest but had cut off his ankle monitor and left home. One of his cellmates claims Funke told him he had killed Armstrong, and a friend of Funke’s said he saw bloodstains in the trailer and Funke asked him to help dispose of some evidence. Authorities went back to the trailer and took the stains to test for DNA; the blood was Armstrong’s.
