Three arrested in attempt to kill former Auburn football player

Two people were arrested in a plot to kill former Auburn football player Robert Shiver.

The plot was discovered by police while investigating a separate crime regarding a break in, according to reports.

The details

"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," the Western Journal reported.

"Police were originally investigating WhatsApp messages on the phone of one of the suspects of the break-in. While rifling through those messages, they stumbled onto the plot to kill Robert Shiver, a former deep snapper for the Auburn Tigers who last played in 2008," it added.

The background

"A source familiar with the investigation said the Shivers have a home in the Bahamas, where Lindsay first began an affair with Bethel. Upon Robert finding out about the suspected affair, he filed for divorce," the Times Enterprise reported.

"That is when Lindsay, Bethel and Newbold Jr. were said to have concocted a plan to murder Robert," it continued.

The hitman

"A court document revealed the couple were due in Thomas County Superior Court on July 20 where they filed counterclaims against each other but the details were not immediately available," the Daily Mail revealed.

"She then orchestrated a plan to murder her estranged husband with Bethel and enlisted the help of an alleged hitman Newbold, according to authorities," it continued. The three individuals are being held in jail until their court date in October, according to the report from Daily Mail.

The couple has three children together, all sons, with the youngest four years old.

Roberts played at Auburn University in Alabama from 2006 to 2008 as a long snapper. He signed with the Atlanta Falcons for the 2009 season but was not on the final team roster, later working with Senior Life Insurance Company.

The family regularly visited the Bahamas and now finds themselves at the center of an international crime investigation as their family's situation has become headline news over the alleged assassination plot.
