Man drove from Tennessee to murder lover’s husband, Dallas police say

The Dallas Police Department has arrested a man who allegedly traveled from his home state of Tennessee to Dallas to murder his former girlfriend’s husband.

On October 9, 2020, at around 7:30 in the morning, a man and his wife of 15 years took their dog for a walk around the neighborhood. As they were walking along Waverly Drive in Oak Cliff, an armed man in a black pickup truck ran up behind the couple and shot the man multiple times. The man’s wife said she was beaten and thrown to the ground, but could not get a good description of the suspect. The suspect then drove off in his pickup truck.

Dallas Fire-Rescue responded quickly, but the man was pronounced deceased on the scene. A homicide investigation was launched to catch his killer.

The investigation led detectives to a 48-year-old man from Tennessee, who was the boyfriend of the man’s wife during their high school and college years. An arrest affidavit indicates the man’s wife and the suspect were engaged in an “emotional affair” and exchanged over 14,000 texts or phone calls in the month surrounding her husband’s death. One of those text messages from the suspect indicated he had a “5 year plan of how they would be together.”

Dallas police gathered cell phone evidence placing the suspect at the scene of the crime. The same cell phone evidence indicates the suspect drove back to Tennessee immediately after the shooting.

Law enforcement partners assisted the Dallas Police Department in locating and apprehending the suspect at his house in Cumberland Furnace, Tennessee on Monday, January 11, 2021.

Police have not released whether the man’s wife was involved in a plot to kill the husband.
