I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this is happening.
The Missouri Highway Patrol maintains a central database for criminal reports filed in the state, but they may not be there yet depending on how old that text is.
Missouri Stat., Section(###) ###-####/a> makes criminal incident reports public records within 30 days after the investigation has ended. It also allows family members of those involved in an incident to access records before they become public record. Since it sounds like your wife filed this report recently, call the local police department to see if they have the record and if they'll give you a copy. It may not say why she's being blackmailed, but it will likely say who she suspects of doing it.
Any money held in joint accounts can legally be withdrawn by either of you, so the blackmailer could have access to your bank accounts through your wife. Your wife would need your permission to sell a car or any real estate that you own, so the blackmailer cannot get those things without your consent. Meanwhile, be vigilant. If you see anyone suspicious lingering near your house, watching you or your wife, or following you in public, call the police.
