When a couple’s divorce became final, the ex-husband from Georgia got so upset that he took it against his ex-wife’s lawyer by shockingly killing him. After carrying out the cold-blooded murder against his ex-wife’s attorney, the man then killed himself.
Cartersville police Lt. M.E. Bettikofer said that Walter Samuel Radford’s divorce was finalized at 12:04 p.m. on Wednesday, and two hours after that, the 33-year-old ex-husband fatally shot his former wife’s attorney at his law office. The authorities said that 41-year-old lawyer Antonio Benjamin Mari’s body was found in his office where he was shot multiple times.
Bettikofer said that after murdering Mari, Radford called his ex-wife Cindy Radford to confess that he had shot Mari. Radford then broke into Cindy’s home where he shot himself. His body was discovered at around 2:40 p.m.
Mari had earlier shared with his colleagues that he had a bad gut feeling against Radford. According to Mari’s fellow attorney, Wade Everett, while Mari didn’t give details, the lawyer shared his misgivings about Radford, that he felt he could harm him.
Mari was so concerned about his security that on Thursday, Everett said they even discussed security at their office.
Mari’s murder shocked the Cartersville community where he had worked for almost two decades as a high school history teacher and later an attorney.
Mari is survived by his wife, and tributes for him from the community continue to pour. Fellow Cartersville lawyer Lester Tate said: “He’s just one of the nicest, most easy-going people you could imagine.”
It is not clear if Radford is suffering from any mental health issues, or if he has not moved on from his separation with his ex-wife that the finality of their divorce would lead him to do such a horrific act against her lawyer.
