Gillespie's husband told News-7 he last saw Theresa Saturday when they had dinner at Maxwell's in Blacksburg.
He says he didn't report her missing because she had taken trips with friends without telling him before.
The couple lived on Harrell Street in Blacksburg. Theresa's body was found just a couple of blocks away, in an area where her husband says the two often went jogging together.
Her body has been sent for an autopsy to determine how she died.

(( 30-year-old Steven Leftwich had to be assisted by his mom to judge's bench.
One eye closed shut, limping and with a swollen face... he alleges Roanoke City Police Officers beat him without cause.
However, police contend Leftwich attacked two officers and a trooper during a traffic stop.
The incident happened Sunday morning on Campbell Avenue around 3:30.
The driver, Leftwich's cousin William Hayden says the police pulled him over for a broken taillight.
He says during the stop police ordered Leftwich out of the passenger seat to question him.
Hayden says that's when the beating began.
We attempted unsuccessfully to speak with one of the officers identified by Leftwich as being involved in the altercation.
((STEVEN LEFTWICH/DEFENDANT: WE'RE NOT TRYING TO CAUSE A LOT OF TROUBLE, WE JUST WANT JUSTICE SERVED. WE DON'T WANT THIS TO HAPPEN TO ANYBODY ELSE. WE JUST WANT THIS CUT OUT BECAUSE IT WAS WRONG... IT WAS JUST WRONG.)) ((WILLIAM HAYDEN/DRIVER: MY COUSIN WAS TREATED LIKE AN ANIMAL, BEAT DOWN LIKE AN ANIMAL WHEN HE DID NOTHING TO DESERVE IT. AND THEY HAD ME AT GUN POINT AND BASICALLY LET ME WATCH HIM GET BEAT.))
Community leaders are concerned a fair trial is out of the question in Roanoke. ((PERNELLER WILSON/S.C.L.C. PRESIDENT: I WISH THAT THE CASE BE MOVED OUT OF THE CITY OF ROANOKE, COMPLETELY OUT OF THE STATE... BECAUSE WE KNOW THE GOOD OLE BOY NETWORK HERE. AND I DON'T FEEL THAT HE WOULD GET JUSTICE HERE TO START WITH.))
Police say the details of this investigation won't be out until the investigation is complete. ))
