The PCA has been released and indicates that Theresa Sievers’ husband Mark has been implicated in the plot to kill her. He has not been charged at this time, the two acquaintances of his that traveled to Florida to allegedly commit the murder are in jail at this time. More to follow, The News-Press has details. As does NBC-2, Mark Sievers is the beneficiary of nearly $5 million in life insurance for his wife. Fox 4 reports that Jimmy Rodgers’ wife says he confessed to the murder while lying in bed.
More to come in the near future, as more documents from the criminal case are released.
NBC-2 caught up with Mark Sievers, the husband of the Bonita Springs doctor that was murdered a couple months ago. He has been laying low recently, but NBC found him outside his late wife’s former practice. Unsurprisingly, all he said was “No comment.”
To recap, Dr. Theresa Sievers was brutally murdered in her home in Bonita Springs. At the time, her husband and family were out of town. About a week ago, two arrests were made, and two men from Missouri have been charged in her murder. There is evidence that at least one of those men, Jimmy Rodgers, traveled to Florida at the time of her murder, and he has now admitted to it as a violation of his Federal probation on illegal gun possession charges.
The other man, Curtis Wayne Wright, was a childhood friend of Mark Sievers. Sievers has not been named as a suspect in the murders, nor as a person of interest. However, Sheriff Mike Scott has made it clear that the case is still open and the investigation continues. He has given several interviews, and declined to name Mr. Sievers as a person of interest. However, he would not rule it out on behalf of Mr. Sievers, or anyone else in the “envelope of suspicion.”
Here’s the thing that drives speculation… the major questions about the case that have gone unanswered, so far. For instance, why would Mark Sievers’ good friend commit the murder, or recruit his friend to do so? What motive do either of those men have. So far, the only known connection is their connection to Mark. There has been no indication that there was a robbery or burglary; the suspects have only been charged with murder, as far as we know. Further, Rodgers told friends that he was going to make $10,000 for his trip to Florida: where was that money coming from?
