Clown shot woman in face while holding balloons in 'love triangle killing'

SheilaKeen720

Investigators from Palm Beach County and Washington County in Virginia said she was behind the so-called clown murder in the community of Wellington 27 years ago.

Police say Warren was confronted by an orange wig-wearing woman in a clown costume after answering her front door in Wellington, Fla. He yelled at the clown who turned briefly turned around before taking off. Marlene died two days later, and the clown's white Chrysler convertible was found abandoned in Royal Palm Beach. Investigators also learned Shelia Keen-Warren, now 54 years old, and Michael Warren owned and operated a restaurant together in Tennessee.

Police have not revealed whether he was involved in his former wife's death, although detectives did connect the Chrysler to Warren's auto business, inside finding orange fibers-similar to those found on an orange clown wig-and brown hair.

According to the Post, Michael and Sheila had been suspected by friends and family of having an affair before Marlene's murder, which they denied to investigators.

A Miami Herald story the Friday before 1991's Memorial Day weekend read, "At a press conference marking the one-year anniversary since Warren's death, detectives Steve Newell, Lou Sessa and Bill Williams said there is no doubt in their minds that Sheila Keen was the killer clown, and that Marlene Warren's husband Michael played some part in the murder". She was taken to jail in Washington County where she was being held awaiting extradition to Palm Beach County, Florida. They say that the person who shot Marlene was dressed as a clown and offered the victim a flower arrangement and balloons just before the shooting. Aherns didn't remember what he said, but he remembered the clown's brown eyes.

Russian General Killed in Syria
Konashenkov said Moscow suspected the SDF of colluding with the terrorist group ISIS in Deir Ezzur rather than fighting it, as it claims to be.

Marlene Warren, 40, was shot in the face at point blank range by a jester wearing an orange wig in a weird murder that puzzled America for decades.

The getaway vehicle, a white Chrysler LeBaron convertible, was also a key part of the initial investigation.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said Warren was arrested in Abingdon, Virginia, about 5 miles from the Tennessee state line.

A spokesperson for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office declined to comment further on the investigation, saying the indictment was under seal. The salesperson described the woman who bought the items as having long, brown hair, like she had. The balloons police found at the scene were traced back to a shop near Keen's home, and a woman matching her description was seen buying them in the hours before the shooting.
