Florida Man Allegedly Tricked Family Into Believing Murdered Wife Was Still Alive

Florida Man Challenge January 10

The man, Shelby Svensen confessed to the killing last year but only after he was arrested for also murdering her parents and brother. He was able to keep up the charade for nearly a year convincing her friends and family that she was still alive by texting and sending photos of the couple’s two young children from her phone.

The police department is still investigating the exact events that led up to her death. The children were in the car with Svenson when he was arrested and are currently in a foster home in Ohio.

Svenson was previously arrested on domestic violence charges. He will be charged with his wife’s murder, but not until after he’s tried for the triple homicide of his wife’s family first.
