Who knew an extramarital affair could be so deadly? Illinois bodyguard Chris Coleman has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the strangulation deaths of his 31-year-old wife, Sheri, and their 2 children, Garett (11) and Gavin (9). All 3 victims were found in their home on May 5th.
A possible motive? How about a steamy tryst with Sheri’s friend, Tampa-St.Petersburg paramour Tara Lintz? Lintz admitted, via affidavit, that Coleman promised his divorce from Sheri would be finalized June 14th, so that they could wed shortly thereafter. These facts are aberrantly similar those of Amber Frey and Scott Peterson… Just after the bodies were discovered, Coleman e-mailed Lintz he has an alibi, namely, that he went to the gym for an early morning workout between 5 and 5:30 a.m.; the official time of death for the wife and children is between 3 and 5 a.m.. Coleman also stated that he checked on his family members before he left.
Sheri Coleman’s family is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Chris Coleman. He remains jailed without bond and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 10. Please excuse Lady Justice for the time being – she is busy conducting forensic research.
