In the sort of plot line you’d expect from a soap opera, a woman, her purported lover, and another man were arrested after allegedly plotting the murder of the woman’s former football player and estranged husband.
According to the Bahama Court News, local prosecutors named Lindsay Shiver, 36, her alleged lover, 28-year-old Terrance Bethel, and Faron Newbold, 29, were devising a plot to kill Robert Shiver.
Adding to the spectacular nature of the allegations, police actually stumbled onto this scheme completely by accident.
Bahamian authorities were investigating a separate crime involving a break-in, according to the Court News.
Police were originally investigating WhatsApp messages on the phone of one of the suspects of the break-in.

According to the Thomasville Times-Enterprise, police first uncovered the plot on July 16.
An unnamed source “familiar with the investigation” told the Times-Enterprise that Robert and Lindsay Shiver had a home in the Bahamas.
That home is also where Lindsay Shiver and Terrance Bethel began their adulterous tryst.
Upon finding out about the affair, Robert Shiver reportedly filed for divorce.
According to an Instagram post from 2020, Robert and Lindsay met at a fitness class around 2007.
