Lindsay Shiver, a former pageant queen and mother of three from Georgia, has been arrested in the Bahamas for allegedly planning the murder of her estranged husband, Robert Shiver, a former Auburn University football player.
The sinister plot was uncovered when Bahamian police stumbled upon the scheme while investigating a different case.
Alongside Lindsay, two other individuals, identified as Terrance Bethel and Faron Newbold, were also apprehended in connection with the planned hit.
Lindsay Shiver’s secret affair
The tale begins with Lindsay Shiver‘s alleged affair with Terrance Bethel, who reportedly became her lover.
The affair took root at the Shiver family’s Bahamas home, where Lindsay was accused of engaging in the illicit relationship with Bethel.
Upon discovering the affair between his wife and the 28-year-old Bethel, Robert Shiver initiated divorce proceedings, which further strained the already troubled marriage.
How Lindsay Shiver conspired with hitman and lover to murder husband
As the divorce proceedings unfolded, Lindsay Shiver is said to have devised a sinister plan to eliminate her estranged husband with the help of her lover, Terrance Bethel, and an alleged hitman named Faron Newbold.
The authorities claim that the trio conspired together with a common purpose to commit the heinous act on July 16, 2023.
The evidence that led to their apprehension was discovered during the investigation of a burglary at Grabber’s Bar and Grill, where the police found incriminating WhatsApp messages on the suspect’s phone outlining the murder plot.
Bahamian police wasted no time in arresting Lindsay Shiver, Terrance Bethel, and Faron Newbold, swiftly taking them into custody.
They were subsequently flown to Nassau and appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Roberto Reckley in court on Friday.
During the hearing, they were not required to enter a plea, and they are now being held in jail until their next court appearance scheduled for October 5.
