Two men were arrested this week in connection to the murder of a well-regarded Florida doctor and married mother-of-two who sources say was beaten to death with a hammer.
Curtis Wayne Wright Jr, 47, and Jimmy Rodgers, 25, were arrested in Missouri and are facing charges of second-degree murder in the death of Teresa Sievers, 46, who was found dead in her Bonita Springs home on June 29.
Wright is a longtime friend of Sievers’s husband, Mark Sievers. The two went to school together and are friends on Facebook.
The name one another as family members on the social media site, but it is unknown if they are related.
Wright was also friends with Rodgers on Facebook, but the latter has recently deleted his account.
Lee County, Florida, Sheriff Mike Scott called the arrests a ‘big deal’ on Thursday and described the incident as a ‘targeted set of circumstances’, according to WINK.
‘This is the most complicated, intricate set of circumstances that most of us have ever seen,’ said Scott. He added that the case is still active.
Rodgers was arrested on Wednesday for leaving the state of Missouri without contacting his probation officer, according to an arrest warrant. He was on probation for possessing a handgun as a felon.
He was allegedly at a Fort Myers, Florida, Walmart on June 28, the day before Sievers was found dead, the warrant said.
He appeared in a Missouri court on Friday on probation violation charges, but the murder charges he faces in Florida were not discussed.
Rodgers, who lived 1,200 miles from Bonita Springs, reportedly told his girlfriend about the killing and pointed her to where he hid the evidence, according to NBC 2.
