In a shocking turn of events, the story of Robert Shiver, a former college football star, and his wife Lindsay Shiver has taken a dark and twisted path. Lindsay now faces charges for allegedly plotting to kill her husband in the Bahamas, with the help of her lover and an alleged hitman. This sordid tale unraveled after Lindsay accused Robert of domestic violence earlier this year.
Details surrounding the case have been slowly unfolding. Lindsay, her lover Terrance Bethel, and the alleged hitman Faron Newbold were granted bail after an agreement was reached between Robert and the prosecutor in the Bahamas. Lindsay has been released on a $100,000 cash bail, while Bethel and Newbold were each granted $20,000 bail. All three individuals are required to stay in the Bahamas until their court appearance on October 5 and are prohibited from contacting Robert.
It appears that Lindsay and Robert, who both resided in Thomasville, Georgia, shared a house in the Bahamas. The couple frequently vacationed there, where Lindsay may have met Bethel and initiated their affair. The plot to kill Robert came to light when law enforcement uncovered WhatsApp messages on a phone obtained during a separate investigation.
Robert and Lindsay, who were married for thirteen years, have three young children together. The couple filed for divorce from each other in April, with both parties leveling serious accusations against one another. Robert cited Lindsay’s “adulterous conduct,” while Lindsay accused Robert of domestic violence, financial abuse, and subjected her to “physical and mental cruel treatment.” Lindsay also expressed financial distress due to the associated legal fees.
The shocking turn of events has left everyone involved, including Lindsay’s grandfather Tom Shirley, in disbelief and disappointment. Shirley expressed his shock, stating that he never saw any signs of trouble in their relationship and wonders if Lindsay somehow lost her mind.
As the details of this case continue to emerge, it becomes evident that what started as a seemingly perfect love story between a college football star and a beauty pageant queen has devolved into alleged domestic violence, infidelity, and an alleged plot to commit murder in a foreign country. The world watches on, captivated by the chilling twists and turns of this dark chapter.
