Woman Files For Divorce After Husband Uses Company Funds To Hire Hit Men


A woman in Dallas is lucky to be alive after gunmen hired by her husband shot her in the face last month. Now she has filed for divorce after discovering that her husband did hire the men. She had no idea until police and FBI agents arrested him after one of the gunman gave up the guy. It turns out the man used company funds to pay the hitmen and that he had stolen upwards of $32M from his company which he used to have a secret life which involved a mistress who he appears to have bought to pieces of property for totaling $2M and also spent $500K to send her child to college. That is a really expensive college. The couple have been married 29 years and have three children, but he wanted to be with his mistress. One word. Divorce. You know you are messed up when you think to yourself that killing someone is better than divorce. Somehow they guy posted his $1M bail and I bet he skips town and the country. Look for him in Mexico and his mistress will not be there. She probably said see ya and thanks for the parting gifts.

Seriously?! Who in their right mind decides murdering their spouse is the right thing to do? If you're that miserable, just leave FFS!

the money is off shore with Mitt's...

These hit's are becoming more common...wonder how many get away with it.
How do you steal 32 Million...?

I'd say this dude is a total and complete loser who thought he could get away with anything. He'd already embezzled $32 mil AND managed to pull off the double-life crap on top of that. So I'm sure he thought taking his wife out would be a piece of cake. What a piece of shit. And I wouldn't call just anyone that. Good Lord.

I think he's so convinced that his shit doesn't stink that he won't leave the country, even though he would if he had a brain in his head. Good grief.

Frufra said...

P.S. - his picture makes me stabby.

There were probably some slight hints that the wife failed to notice throughout the years about his infidelity. The mistress that she hit the jackpot with this guy and stuck around for that long. Now the mistress is off to find her next suger daddy.

timebob said...

His kids must be so proud of him.

He reminds me a bit of Todd Palin.

I hope the wife has a quick recovery.

This guy is a psychopath. Keep him in jail forever please.

lostathome said...

How does a married person find the time to lead a double life? That's a lot of "business trips" I guess. I imagine he also didn't GAF about his own children either if he was that willing to off their mother.

smashbash said...

I bet you he just didnt want to pay out in a divorce. Men are so greedy with money!! If you spend 29 years with someone and have 3 kids with them! Give a few million! You embezzled 30+mil. What is 5 or 10 million. Stupid prick asshole. I hope the judge gives her a fat chunck of money for what she has had to go through. She got shot in the face for f's sake!

When I was a kid, my aunt was murdered by her husband for life insurance money. She didn't have a life insurance policy.

I think sometimes a person's logic completely fails them, and they do stupid, senseless shit like this.

Kewi said...

Wow Amber that's horrible, I hope he got what he deserved.

Is Texas going to become this month's Florida?

Del Riser said...

Yup, divorce would be on the top of my list.

This lack of regard for human life is disturbing. What's with all the *I'll just kill them, yeah, that's the ticket*. Yesterday it was a babysitter. Sometimes I really hate what a lot of people have become.

Kill your mate to get out of paying money, kill your kids to be free to date. Is there a mutant germ that infects these people to make them think that the death of another is really the best way to solve a problem???

I could really use a cute kitten or puppy video.

Amber said...

Kewi - He went to prison. I'm not sure if he's still there or not, though. It was ~20 years ago.

Del - I'm on board with the mutant germ. How hard is it to stay out of trouble?! Know what I've never done? KILLED SOMEONE. I've never walked into the grocery store, had someone get in my way, kill them, and just shrug my shoulders and say, "SOWWY!!! TEEHEE!" /BIG SIGH

Del Riser said...

@Amber, I know, but how do we spot them? I try to be considerate to everyone no matter how badly they might behave, you never know who might decide a dis is grounds for death.

MAC said...

I'm sure he had a life insurance policy on her. So he probably thought that instead of paying alimony, child support and half of his shit, he would just off her and keep his money and make a little off the insurance while he was at it. Fucktard.

Amber said...

Del - maybe we can get glasses like in They Live with Rowdy Rodder Piper and then we can SEE them!

gr8p said...

Psycopath. That poor woman. Please lock him up and keep him away from the rest of society.

smashbash said...

Sorry for your loss amber. That is really terrible :(

Sherry said...

I think someone else pointed it out he probably didn't want to pay out any money. Seems the more money people have the greedier they get. And not to laugh at this but Timebob, that was excellent! By the way kids, I shot mama..

The story intrigued me so I googled for more info:

Nancy Howard was shot when she arrived at her home on August 18. The gunman fired a gun at her face, sending a bullet through her left eye. She was in a coma for several days and lost her eye, but is expected to make a full recovery.

"The bullet traveled through her throat and lodged just above her right lung," according to a description of the incident posted on Mrs. Howard's CaringBridge page.


The arrest affidavit alleges [John] Howard hatched a plan to kill his wife in 2009, sending more than $100,000 to numerous suspects since then.

The affidavit begins on August 18, when Mrs. Howard returned home, finding that unknown man in his early 20s awaiting her in the garage.

The man pulled a handgun and put it to Mrs. Howard’s head, demanding her purse. After she gave it to him, the affidavit says the man shot her in the face and fled.

Nancy Howard was able to call police and tell them what happened.


Holy crap! She was shot in the head and was able to call the police herself!

Amber said...

smash - thanks :) My family is a complicated thing, and I didn't really get the chance to know her. Such a shame. She was pretty young.

Ingrid Superstar said...

What a shitheel, it's incredible how she was able to survive that.

Del asked for a puppy/kitten video. Today seems to be a good day to post this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAbCyA2rbxM

A little lighter-hearted, and not featuring puppy dogs, is this video:

Question. If the money he spent on the mistress was stolen, does she have to pay it back?

@Amber: I'm sorry about your aunt. That is so terrible. People are so greedy and desperate.


I've noticed that a lot of men get completely irrational and lose their math skills and common sense when it comes to child support. I told a friend once that the amount of money he pays in child support (if you calculated it out) was less than the amount of money he would have to shell out if he had custody of his kids. Not to mention the shuttling the kids around to various activities and such. He never got it.

POS!

PugsterMom said...

How could he not know she didn't have life insurance???

Danielle said...

I'm guessing the hitman cost less than what he thought he would lose in the divorce. There's your answer right there.. all about the $$$$.
