Globe reported missing by her family on Dec. 11 of last year. Her body was found three days later in a trash container behind a location in the 18500 block of Fielding Street on Detroit’s west side, in the area of 7 Mile Road and Evergreen.

The day she went missing, Globe was last seen around noon leaving her work in the area of McNichols Road and the Southfield Freeway, according to police, driving a gold 2003 Chevrolet Impala.

Chilling surveillance photos taken the evening Globe disappeared show someone in a skeleton mask using her bank card to withdraw cash at a drive-through ATM at 7 Mile Road and Telegraph.

Then, on Dec. 14, the vehicle was found abandoned near Chatham and Fenkell on Dec. 14, just hours before Globe’s body was discovered. Police said evidence that a crime was committed was found in the car.

Brack denied any involvement in Globe’s death, testifying during the trial that he had no reason to kill her and denying that he’d ever assaulted her.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner was not able to determine how she died.

Sentencing has been scheduled for Sept. 27.
