Was jealousy a ground behind Florida doctor’s monster murder?

Produced by Lisa Freed, Marcelena Spencer and Michelle Feuer

The intolerable murder of Dr. Teresa Sievers in Bonita Springs, Florida, was a outrageous story — generally for contributor Jessica Lipscomb, who lonesome crime for a Naples Daily News.

“This mom of dual who was killed brutally inside her home was offensive to people,” Lipscomb told “48 Hours” match Erin Moriarty.”I consider any time there is a beautiful, successful lady who is murdered, that’s arrange of what multitude pays courtesy to — for improved or for worse.”

The 46-year-old alloy had cut brief a family vacation in upstate New York and flown home alone on Sunday night, Jun 28, 2015, so she could see patients a subsequent morning.

“She … comes behind to here to a Southwest Florida International Airport,” Lipscomb explained. “…there’s confidence footage of her rolling her container by a terminal.” 

“She calls Mark, tells him she’s … safe.  And then,” Lipscomb said,” gets in her automobile and heads behind to their house.

Investigators trust that as shortly as Dr. Sievers walked into her kitchen, she was killed – struck regularly with a hammer.

“You kind of put yourself in her shoes,” Lipscomb continued, “rolling your container by a door, and afterwards to be pounded by someone from behind is — it’s tough to imagine.”

Amy Bennett Williams, wrote about a Sievers murder for The News-Press.

“I sojourn dismayed by since it had to be finished with such savagery,” she told Moriarty of a alloy being struck with a produce 17 times.

“It’s passionate, it’s premeditated, it’s — it’s — it’s cold,” pronounced Lipscomb.

“And angry,” Moriarty noted.

“Very angry,” Williams agreed.

When Connie Reiss listened a comfortless news, she contacted her stepbrother, Mark Sievers, a doctor’s husband.

“It was only — so unbelievable,” Reiss told Moriarty.

Asked how Mark reacted to a genocide of his wife, Reiss said, “He couldn’t speak. …he’s not a kinda male that’s been overly romantic on a outside. But, we know — he couldn’t speak.”

Reiss and Mark became family when her mom married his father.

“I asked him, ‘What happened to Teresa?'” pronounced Reiss. 

“And what did he say?” Moriarty asked.

“‘No idea,'” she replied.

Mark met his destiny mom in 2003, when he was visiting St. Petersburg, Fla.

“Was it flattering many adore during initial sight?” Moriarty asked Reiss.

“Well, we consider by a time that he introduced her to Mom … we consider he was flattering many done,” she replied with a laugh. “He was off a marketplace officially.”

He was operative as a nurse, while she was a recently-divorced physician.

“Teresa hung a moon,” Reiss removed fondly. “She was … a conspicuous tellurian being and unequivocally special. And that’s a approach Mark treated it from a beginning. You could only — we could hear it in his voice.”

Teresa and Mark Sievers

Teresa and Mark Sievers on their matrimony day

They were married on a beach surrounded by friends and family, including Mark’s stepmother, Jennie Weckelman.

“…a nightfall wedding. And she had a pleasing gown,” she said. “It was unequivocally nice.”

Asked if Mark was happy on that day, Weckleman said, “Yes, unequivocally happy.”

Six months later, their daughter, Josephine, was born. The Sievers built a vast residence in Bonita Springs, and, in 2007, welcomed another daughter, Carmela.  

“How did Mark feel about being a dad?” Moriarty asked Reiss.

“Oh, it was all to him. It was — yeah, they were his reason for being,” she replied. “But … he was also all about Teresa and her mission.”

That goal was to open a holistic use where she could reanimate patients by consistent normal and choice medicine. She also widespread her summary in speeches and video.

“We would have patients from all over a world,” pronounced Sandra Hoskins, Dr. Sievers’ longtime medical assistant. “And they would come to us after they unsuccessful all else.”

Talking about a alloy still creates Hoskins emotional.

“As a patient, she wouldn’t concede we say, ‘I’m never gonna get better,'” Hoskins pronounced in tears.

While patients desired a doctor, Hoskins, and her husband, Frank Pais — who also worked during a use — acknowledge it wasn’t always easy operative for Sievers. She had a brief fuse.

“I would hear doctors screamin’ and yellin’ in a behind office,” pronounced Pais.

“Dr. Sievers would scream during a patients?” Moriarty asked.

“She was there to assistance we get better,” Pais explained. “Didn’t have what they called a bedside manner.

“Would she scream during you?” Moriarty asked Hoskins.

“Yes,” she replied.

“And she approaching — perfection. And if it wasn’t perfect, she would get upset,” pronounced Pais.

“She was — a large presence. And infrequently that meant that she got unequivocally feisty with people,” Lipscomb explained. “She was a — a biggest figure in a room.”

While Teresa took caring of her patients, Mark took caring of their daughters.

“The girls were his honour and joy,” pronounced Pais.

Mark also managed his wife’s office.  

“I’ve also listened it described that he authorised her to have her life. He finished her life happen,” Moriarty conspicuous to Williams.

“Very many so. Yes. He — since he was a support system,” she replied. “…you know, saw to a day-to-day sum so that she could do what she wanted to do.”

But even Mark couldn’t shun his wife’s wrath.

“Mark! Get behind here right now. Get in here,'” Pais said, mimicking a doctor.

“‘Mark, get out and leave Sandra alone.’  I’m like, ‘Oh, great,'” pronounced Hoskins.

“How mostly would Dr. Sievers scream during her husband? Was it a flattering revisit thing?” Moriarty asked a couple.

“Every time,” Hoskins said. “Unfortunately that was a norm.”

“It’s roughly like he had, like, a thick skin. He only didn’t care,” pronounced Pais.

It’s a same thing Teresa’s tighten sister, Annie Lisa, told investigators — that Mark put adult with his wife’s annoy since he precious her”:

Annie Lisa to detective: She could finish ripping him out, like “Mark, we told we a hundred f—— times, don’t let a dogs out.”  “I’m sorry, honey,” he would be like. And afterwards she would be doing something, he’d go, “Sweetie, let me get that for you.”  …Mark worshipped a belligerent Teresa walked on.

 And according to Lisa, her sister was equally clinging to Mark:

Annie Lisa to detective: Teresa always said, “I’ll never leave Mark. we won’t ever do that to my girls.”

Nevertheless, within days, Mark Sievers became a chairman of interest.

“Was that only since whenever someone is killed a initial chairman we demeanour during is a spouse?” Moriarty asked Williams.

“I consider it’s turn a cliché. It has to be a husband,” she replied.

“Did he concur initially?” Moriarty asked Weckelman and Reiss.

“Oh, yes,” pronounced Weckelman.

“I consider he suspicion he was doing a right thing,” pronounced Reiss.

Mark spoke to investigators though a counsel benefaction and even handed over his dungeon phone and authorised them to download a contents.

“Was he disturbed he competence be arrested?” Moriarty asked Weckelman.

“He suspicion … ‘Why would they?  …what kinda justification could they presumably have, ’cause we didn’t do anything?'” she replied.

In fact, Mark Sievers had an indisputable alibi.  Remember, during a time of Teresa’s murder, he and their dual girls were with Teresa’s family – 1,300 miles away.


Eight days after Dr. Teresa Sievers was murdered, friends and family came together for her funeral.

“There were a lotta people, yes, and it was sad, of course,” pronounced Mark’s stepmother, Jennie Weckelman.

“Almost all her patients were there. we was numb,” pronounced Sandra Hoskins.

“As we were going down to try to get to a casket, we were saying her sisters on one side. And a demeanour that we were removing wasn’t a demeanour of sadness. It was a demeanour of hatred,” pronounced Frank Pais.

Pais and his wife, Sandra Hoskins, contend a demeanour didn’t only come from Dr. Sievers’ sisters. They were removing a same demeanour from a lamentation widower.

“I hugged him. What do we say? we said, ‘Mark, we am so sorry, we don’t have difference to contend to you’ and he squeezed me so parsimonious and zero came out of his mouth,” Pais said. “Then Sandra hugged him and when Mark hugged Sandra, his teeth gritted. And it wasn’t zero of grief or sadness. The demeanour was hatred. … we stepped back. we said, ‘Holy crap.'”

“Her ex-husband — her initial husband, Kenny Cousins, was there,” Williams explained. “…and he went to cuddle Mark and bumped into a gun that Mark had strapped to his waist. And he suspicion that was a differing note on that day that Mark came to a wake with a gun underneath his jacket.”

Strange? Well, perhaps, though Dr. Teresa Sievers’ torpedo hadn’t nonetheless been arrested and, according to stepsister Connie Reiss, Mark was on edge.

“He was unequivocally many in protecting mode,” Reiss explained. “I think, we know, he always keeps an eye and an ear to a ground, so to speak, and is wakeful of his vicinity and we know he — he was endangered for their safety.”

“I consider it was in a behind of his mind that … there competence be some dangers to his daughters since of what happened to their mother,” pronounced Weckelman.

Dr. Teresa Sievers

Dr. Teresa Sievers

It only didn’t make any sense. Who would wish a colourful and dedicated Dr. Teresa Sievers dead? And since kill her with such annoy and force?

“Could’ve been anybody,” Weckelman reasoned, “and we unequivocally suspicion maybe it was only somebody that was in a area and pennyless in or something.”

There were signs of a forced entrance — examine outlines on a side doorway — though Mark’s endless gun collection and $40,000 in income detected inside a Sievers’ home hadn’t been touched.

“So when this happened, everybody wanted to know what happened with a alarm. And, as it turns out, it hadn’t been activated,” Lipscomb explained.

While a family was on vacation, Mark had asked his mother, Bonnie Sievers, to feed a family pets. She had difficulty environment a alarm that Sunday and told detectives her son pronounced not to worry about it.   Monday morning, Dr. Sievers was detected passed on her kitchen floor.

Bonnie Sievers [crying] So we unequivocally feel it’s my fault.

Detective: You can’t, we can't censure yourself.

Around a time of Dr. Sievers’ murder, a internet was buzzing with reports about a questionable deaths of other choice doctors in a U.S.

“For a while right after she was killed, a blogosphere arrange of erupted with, ‘Oh my goodness, there was a alloy here who was killed and a chiropractor here who was killed. And is this some swindling by large pharma to discharge doctors who were severe a curative establishment?'” pronounced Williams.

But with no genuine justification to behind adult that theory, investigators incited their courtesy to a people who competence have had an mattock to grub with a energetic, mostly abrasive, Dr. Sievers.

“I consider a speculation that we listened was — was that maybe it was a patient. Obviously they were interviewing all of her friends and family members,” Lipscomb explained. “So it was flattering many like a far-reaching open margin of suspects during that point.”

A startling name emerged. In her military interview, Dr. Sievers’ sister, Annie Lisa, pronounced she listened Sandra Hoskins was a discontented employee—that’s a same lady who seemed so dissapoint by a doctor’s death.

Annie Lisa to detective: we also listened her contend over a years, that we know, Sandra was bad mouthing Teresa.

Annie Lisa to detective: You competence not like your boss, though we don’t bad mouth them to patients that are entrance in a doors. Like, “Dr. Sievers, we know, she’s a — she’s a bitch.”

“I’m like, ‘Oh my God, they consider we did it,’ pronounced Hoskins.

Hoskins, who claims she had been treated cruelly by Dr. Sievers in a past, had designed to palm in her abdication that unequivocally Monday a alloy was found dead. According to Hoskins, a alloy told her she was bringing bad appetite to a office.

“Now we know since we wasn’t perceived unequivocally good during her memorial,” she said.

“Why would anyone consider that we did this?” Moriarty asked.

“That is intolerable to me,” Hoskins replied. “A lotta a patients did know a approach she treated me.”

“And so people thought, maybe we had only had enough?” Moriarty asked.

 “Yeah,” pronounced Hoskins.

And when a investigator called her father Frank, Pais said, “He greeted me. He took me to this small room and he left me there.”

Detective: I’ll be right back, is that all right?

“And we sat in a room, five, 10 minutes, maybe 15 minutes,” Pais continued.

Suddenly, he satisfied all eyes were on him.

“Then all of remarkable it dawned on me, I’m being watched. we saw a square of dirt on a building and we started counting Mississippi. One Mississippi, two. we got to 120ish and afterwards a investigator walked in,” Pais told Moriarty. “And he asked me indicate blank, ‘Did we have a passionate attribute with Doctor outward a office?'”

Detective: Never had a attribute with her outward of work or anything like that?
Frank Pais: No
Detective: Dr. Sievers ever come on to you?

“Then he goes, ‘Did we have a passionate propinquity with Doctor inside a office?’ we said, ‘absolutely not,'” pronounced Pais.

Police were questionable since Frank had been “let go” from his pursuit during Dr. Sievers’ use by her husband, Mark, 9 months before she was murdered.

“Why did they consider we could have killed Teresa Sievers?” Moriarty asked.

“Don’t know,” Pais replied.

“Were we disturbed about Frank?” Moriarty asked Hoskins.

“I wasn’t disturbed about him, ’cause we know he didn’t do it,” she replied.

And, Pais says he had an alibi.

Then, in late Aug 2015, scarcely dual months after Dr. Teresa Sievers was murdered in her Florida home, a overwhelming mangle in a case. Police finished arrests and a suspects were not from Florida.

“So we showed adult to a press conference, we believe, that August. And a policeman gets adult there and tells us simply a name of a initial suspect, Jimmy Rodgers … and he says he’s from Missouri and he’s been requisitioned for a murder of Teresa Sievers,” pronounced Lipscomb.

“Never listened of him,” Weckelman said. “I thought, ‘Oh well, who is he and what’s he got to do with this?'”

“…and afterwards about an hour later, he calls us in again and says, ‘we’ve now picked adult a second consider … also from Missouri,” Lipscomb said. “It was so shocking.”

To solve this murder, investigators would transport some-more than 1,000 miles. They were in for a furious float and would shortly learn this box had as many twists and turns as a Missouri River.


WINK-TV report: Teresa Sievers was bludgeoned to genocide with a produce … Neighbors are still watchful for answers.

The dual arrests for Teresa Sievers’ murder, finished 1,100 miles divided in Missouri, seemed to come out of a blue.

“Why?” Weckelman pronounced with a laugh. “You know … ‘What’s going on? ‘ …Just seemed like such a disconnect.”

No one had ever listened of a consider Jimmy Ray Rodgers, though it was a mop shot of a other consider — Wayne Wright — that struck everyone. He had an supernatural likeness to a victim’s husband, Mark Sievers.

“All we can contend is that their earthy likeness was a theme of copiousness of newsroom talk,” contributor Amy Bennett Williams said. “We would uncover photos of them side by side, and say, we know, is there some blood bond here of that we’re not aware…”

“They demeanour alike, yes,” pronounced Weckelman.

Wayne Wright, left and Mark Sievers

Look-alike friends Wayne Wright, left, and Mark Sievers

“At slightest in pictures, they demeanour like twins,” Moriarty noted.

“…that’s when we started to believe, we know, unequivocally that there is not something right with Curtis Wayne Wright,” pronounced Reiss.

As it turns out, Curtis Wayne Wright, who goes by Wayne, was no foreigner to Mark’s family.

“He was Mark’s unequivocally good friend,” pronounced Weckelman.

 “…from ages and ages… so we didn’t trust it. we didn’t,” Reiss pronounced jolt her conduct in disbelief.

It only didn’t make sense. Wayne Wright and Mark Sievers had grown adult together in Missouri. Wright was during Teresa’s funeral, he had distinguished Mark and Teresa’s matrimony with them, and only dual months before a murder, Mark had been Wright’s best male during his wedding. Wright was also, utterly literally, a informed face around a office.

“Did we dual know Wayne Wright, how did we know him?” Moriarty asked Sandra Hoskins and Frank Pais.

“He was a mechanism male that looked only like Mark,” Hoskins replied.

Wayne Wright would transport from Missouri to Florida to work on a computers in Dr. Sievers’ office.

“How would we news Wayne?” Moriarty asked.

“He was geeky,” Pais replied. “All he wanted to do was get a computers adult and regulating — focused.”

“But, to me he only seemed like a geeky creepster,” pronounced Hoskins.

“Did he make we nervous?” Moriarty asked.

“A small bit,” Hoskins replied. “I can’t explain it. It’s only a woman’s intuition.”

“How would we news Mark and Wayne’s relationship? They seem to be tighten friends?”

“Yeah,” pronounced Hoskins.

“He’s always said, ‘he’s my hermit from another mother,'” pronounced Pais.

“Yeah, that was his lingo,” pronounced Hoskins.

Back in Hillsboro, Missouri, Greg Bolin knew both Mark Sievers and Wayne Wright. He initial met Wright in a third grade.

Bolin remembers his high propagandize classmate, Wright, as a tech whiz, a child voted many dependable, and as a fun male to hang around with.

“He indeed ran for and became a category president,” pronounced Bolin.

“Smart?” Moriarty asked.

“Very smart,” Bolin replied. “Quite overtly he was one of a smartest people with computers that we ever met.”

But it wasn’t prolonged before Bolin suspected Wayne Wright had a dim side. In 1996, Bolin’s brother, Ronnie Bolin, a preacher, mysteriously disappeared. His physique has never been found. And according to police, Ronnie was final seen with Wright.

“Do we trust Wayne Wright killed your brother?” Moriarty asked Greg Bolin.

“Yes, we do,” he replied.

“You have no doubt about that?”

“I have no doubt in my mind….

Greg Bolin believes a ground was income that Wright due Ronnie.

 “…they found his automobile with a automobile keys still in ignition in a automobile rinse in St. Louis,” contributor Jessica Lipscomb pronounced of Ronnie Bolin.

Wright has never been charged in Ronnie Bolin’s disappearance, though he is listed in a military news as a chairman of interest. And Wright’s no foreigner to a rapist probity system. In 2011 he was portion time for drug possession when he befriended a other consider in Dr. Sievers’ murder: a immature invalid named Jimmy Ray Rodgers who was doing time on a weapons charge.

Jimmy Rodgers was expelled from jail. Tyler Juliette and Jeff Conway hired him to work during a constrictive company.

“You could only tell he indispensable a job. He wanted a job, we know?” pronounced Juliette.

“He favourite to tell a lot of stories. A lot of things he told during a time, nobody unequivocally believed Jimmy,” Conway explained. “He favourite to gloat a small bit about things he had finished in a past.”

Jimmy Ray Rodgers

A colorful, rapist past. Conway says Rodgers would gloat about criminal jobs trimming from stolen sell to tawdry money.


The murder weapon. Dr. Theresa Sievers was struck with a produce 17 times.

“I never felt Jimmy was a dangerous guy. we only felt like he was a blowhard honestly, we know. we unequivocally felt like he was only a talker,” pronounced Juliette.

Conway recalls that he had asked Jimmy Rodgers to work on Monday, Jun 29. But Rodgers texted him behind and pronounced he wasn’t available.

“All it pronounced was, “I can’t do that. I’m still in Florida,” pronounced Conway.

It was on Jun 29, that Dr. Teresa Sievers was detected bludgeoned to genocide with a produce inside her Florida home and it didn’t go neglected to investigators that Jimmy Ray Rodgers had a singular nickname.

“Supposedly Jimmy Rodgers’ nickname was ‘The Hammer.’ But we consider that was some-more like a self-given nickname. If we speak to some of his friends from high propagandize they contend ‘Nobody unequivocally called him that,’ though we consider maybe going to jail for a initial time, we know … perplexing to make a name for himself … maybe that’s something he arrange of reserved himself to fit in,” pronounced Lipscomb.

Why was Jimmy “The Hammer” Rodgers in Florida that fatal weekend? Was Wayne Wright with him? And what led authorities to trust they were both concerned in a doctor’s murder?


Back in Jun 2015, most everybody in Hillsboro, Missouri, knew that Wayne Wright was formulation a weekend outing out of town. 

“He let it outing to lots of people that he was going down to Florida,” Jessica Lipscomb told Moriarty. “Told some people he was even going to revisit a Sievers.”

Word was out and it wasn’t prolonged before military got a tip that Wright had been in Florida during a time of Dr. Sievers’ murder.  And he hadn’t left there alone. He went with his jailhouse pal, Jimmy “The Hammer” Rodgers.

“He had indeed told me a integrate of weeks before that that he competence be going to Florida,” pronounced Rodgers’ boss, Jeff Conway.  “He told me a story that his hermit who had lived in California during a time had graduated from law propagandize and that he had invited Jimmy down to Florida for a weekend all losses paid.

But he told his profound girlfriend, Taylor Shomaker, another story. He was going out of city for a few days to work with Wayne Wright.

 “…he had told her he was going … to make some money,” pronounced Lipscomb.

Detectives from Florida arrived in Hillsboro, Mo., weeks after Rodgers and Wright returned from their trip.  They confronted Wright about that tip fixation him in Florida.  He close them down. But a GPS unprotected a lot of what they indispensable to know.      

On a morning of Jun 27, 2015, Wright got into his let automobile in Hillsboro and afterwards went to collect adult Jimmy Ray Rodgers. At some point, an residence was put into a GPS and afterwards a dual group took off for their 1,100 mile float to Bonita Springs, Florida.

After pushing all day and all night, on Sunday, Jun 28, Wright and Rodgers arrived during a Sievers home –the Bonita Springs residence automatic into a GPS. It’s a digital footprint for investigators.

When Rodgers and Wright arrived around 6 a.m., authorities trust they incited off a residence alarm. That competence explain since Mark’s mother, Bonnie Sievers, was so confused about a alarm system:

Bonnie Sievers: we was not there during 6:09 in a morning.

Cop: It was incited off during 6:09.

Bonnie Sievers: Oh, my god. You meant someone was in there?

Cop: That’s what we’re perplexing to work out.

Bonnie Sievers: Oh, my God.

Then, according to a GPS, Rodgers and Wright left a Sievers’ home and typed in another residence — for a Walmart — to do some shopping.

Rodgers and Wright Walmart notice video

Jimmy Ray Rodgers and Wayne Wright as seen in Walmart notice video

 … apparently looking during that confidence footage from a Walmart they’re means to flattering fast establish who was with Wayne,” Lipscomb pronounced of a video.

“They … finished no bid to cover their faces? Disguise themselves,” Moriarty asked.

“No,” Lipscomb said. “”They only waltzed by like they were anyone else.”

They bought, among other things, rabble bags, flushable soppy wipes, black towels, black shoes, and a lock-picking kit. They paid income for their squeeze with a one hundred dollar bill.

After selling during Walmart, Rodgers and Wright continued regulating a navigation complement — even to find a beach.

“Does it make any clarity that this male who was so good with computers would have left such a trail?” Moriarty asked Greg Bolin.

“It does though it doesn’t,” he replied.

Bolin, who resolutely believes Wayne Wright killed his brother, knows Wayne’s universe is distant from predictable.

“To a lot of people looking during it, it kind of creates it demeanour like, we know, these guys were only reticent and dumber,” pronounced Bolin.

After shower in some object during a beach, according to military affidavits, Wright and Rodgers returned to a Sievers home where they hung out for hours in a garage, fibbing in wait for an gullible Dr. Sievers to arrive.

“Which one do investigators trust did a killing?” Moriarty asked Williams.

“There was a story or dual in that Wayne pronounced he started and Jimmy finished,” she replied.

Less than an hour later, in a early morning hours of Monday, Jun 29, a GPS shows Rodgers and Wright on a highway headed northbound for a 17-hour expostulate behind to Missouri. The electronic route would eventually lead detectives to Jimmy Ray Rodgers’ door. But only like Wright, he denied being involved. And when they pulled in Rodgers’ girlfriend, Taylor Shomaker, what a story she had to tell.

Jimmy Ray Rodgers took his girlfriend, Taylor for a ride, along Route 47 in farming Missouri. And along a way, he asked her to chuck out tools of his phone that he had crushed earlier, some gloves and a jumpsuit.

Taylor Shomaker: …he said, “throw this into a river” and it took me a notation to click in…

Taylor Shomaker:  And afterwards we threw a gloves out and afterwards waited a notation and afterwards we threw out a jumpsuit…

Detective: Did we ask since or we only did it?

Taylor Shomaker: No, we only did it. we was scared.

Taylor told military that’s when she pushed Jimmy to tell her accurately what happened in Florida.

“…and he ends adult revelation her that we know, he went with Wayne and they killed Mark, Mark Sievers’ wife,” pronounced Lipscomb.

Taylor Shomaker: And he told me about regulating a produce on her.

Detective:  OK.  And he pronounced that he killed Teresa Sievers, Mark’s mom —

Taylor Shomaker: Yeah.

Detective: — with a hammer?

Taylor Shomaker:  Yes.

Now Florida detectives knew who killed Teresa Sievers. though they were blank a essential square of a puzzle. Why would Wayne Wright wish to kill his best friend’s wife?

“Did everybody afterwards say, ‘Oh, my gosh, Mark had to be involved,” Moriarty asked Lipscomb.

“Definitely, we meant … there was unequivocally no — no putting Wayne in Florida in Bonita Springs inside their residence though Mark meaningful about it,” she replied.

Or was there?


“When we listened that Teresa had been murdered, did it start to possibly one of we that Mark competence be involved?” Erin Moriarty asked his stepsister and stepmother.

“No,” they replied in unison.

“Not even a suspicion in a behind of your mind?” Moriarty asked.

“No,” pronounced Connie Reiss.

“No. Absolutely not,” pronounced Jennie Weckelman.

Teresa and Mark Sievers

Teresa and Mark Sievers

Mark Sievers’ family can’t accept what only about everybody else had prolonged suspected.

“There were a lot of things that finished Mark Sievers seem consider to people,” Jessica Lipscomb explained.  “He wasn’t articulate with investigators anymore. He wouldn’t give media interviews. There were rumors that he had lawyered up.”

“But didn’t Mark Sievers have an indisputable alibi?” Moriarty asked.

“Right… even with a pretext of being … with his dual daughters … people only … couldn’t find … what a probable ground could be for anyone else to be meddlesome in murdering this woman,” Lipscomb replied.

As reporters Amy Bennett Williams and Jessica Lipscomb discovered, a Sievers’ open life was unequivocally opposite from their private life.

“I listened rumors unequivocally early on that they were swingers,” pronounced Lipscomb.

And when investigators downloaded Mark’s dungeon phone, they found content messages, emails, photos and videos divulgence carnal sum about a Sievers and their “open” marriage.

It was a warn to Frank Pais.

“They had a opposite matrimony than we thought. They had a opposite lifestyle. What they did behind sealed doors, no one knew about,” Pais said. “They both were carrying attribute with other people.

The Sievers competence have looked rich with their large residence and successful medical practice, though they had critical income problems.

“There’s a poignant IRS garnishment on a home. Mark … pronounced that they mostly lived paycheck to paycheck,” Williams told Moriarty. “I consider that there was infrequently roughly panic about money.”

When investigators unclosed 5 life word policies for Teresa — totaling some-more than $4 million — it was a red flag.

So was that outing Mark Sievers finished to Missouri to be Wayne Wright’s best man, and, as it turns out, a other suspect, Jimmy Ray Rodgers was also a matrimony guest. Investigators wondered if that’s where Mark hatched a devise with a dual men.

Taylor Shomaker, Rodgers’ girlfriend, claimed this was a murder for sinecure and that Rodgers was ostensible to be paid $10,000.

Detective: He pronounced that Mark hired Wayne –

Taylor Shomaker: Yes, and Wayne hired him.  Mark didn’t know anything about Jimmy being hired.

Detective:  And how – where was a income ostensible to come from?

Taylor Shomaker: Insurance from her death.

Detective:  OK.  And did he ever get paid?

Taylor Shomaker: No.

And yet, Mark was not arrested. After conducting dozens of interviews, examining thousands of documents, and impediment Wayne Wright and Jimmy Ray Rodgers — detectives still didn’t have a explanation they indispensable to bond Mark to his mom Teresa’s murder. 

And then, roughly 8 months after Teresa Sievers was killed, Wright – confronting a probable genocide judgment – unexpected incited on his “brother from another mother” and took a deal.

“Self-preservation is … a absolute thing,” Lipscomb commented.

Wright certified murdering Teresa.

Judge: Mr. Wright, since are we pleading guilty currently to second-degree murder?

Wayne Wright: I’m pleading guilty since of my purpose in a formulation and participating of a murder of Teresa Sievers.

And he indicted Mark of being a mastermind. That’s all military needed.

Mark Sievers was charged with a murder of his wife.

“It is transparent to me that he had zero to do with this murder,” Mark’s attorney, Antonio Faga, said. “At a finish of a day, when Wayne was faced with a genocide penalty, he pronounced … ‘I’ve gotta engage somebody else.’ And that somebody else had to be Mark.”

“And nonetheless he’s charged with first-degree murder and faces a genocide penalty,” Moriarty forked out.

“Based on a testimony of Wayne Wright,” pronounced Faga.

And Mark’s family believes Wright killed Teresa on his own, though Mark’s knowledge.  

“Why would Wayne kill Teresa?” Moriarty asked Connie Reiss.

“Because he’s a ill man,” Mark’s stepsister replied.

“Do we consider Wayne was sceptical of Mark?”

“I consider it’s possible,” Reiss replied. “Whether he’s sceptical of Mark or wanted to be Mark we don’t have any clue,” They contend it was Wayne Wright who began to indication himself after Mark Sievers — even shred his conduct when Mark began to bald.

“They didn’t demeanour comparison when they were young,” Missouri crony Greg Bolin explained. “They morphed into any other over a years … if it was by possibility or we know, by their plan, we don’t know.”

But if Wayne Wright killed Teresa Sievers on his own, how would he have famous she was entrance home alone that Sunday evening?

“Is it probable during all that Wayne Wright in Missouri could have famous what Teresa was adult to, her schedule?” Moriarty asked Hoskins and Pais.

“Absolutely,” they replied.

“He didn’t need to speak with Mark. He could have found that out on his own,” Moriarty noted.

“Yes,” Hoskins affirmed.

It turns out Wayne Wright competence have been eavesdropping on a Sievers for years.  He set adult their bureau mechanism complement and would troubleshoot, according to Hoskins and Frank Pais. They contend a Sievers authorised Wright to entrance all from his home in Missouri.

“He can climb on a mechanism any time he wanted … and do whatever he wanted,” pronounced Hoskins.

“He saw all that was going on in a office,” pronounced Pais.

“Is it probable that Wayne knew some-more about what Teresa was doing than her possess father knew?” Moriarty asked a couple.

“Possible,” Pais replied.

Connie Reiss can’t suppose Mark could have had anything to do with a genocide of his wife.

“I adore my brother,” Reiss told Moriarty. “I know that terrible things do start and people do things to people that they love. And we try to be big about that though … He’s not a sociopath … He wouldn’t do this to his children. Just not possible.”

Did Mark Sievers wish his mom passed since of jealousy or money? Or was he tricked by his best friend?
