A “white” witch from Las Vegas, her brother and her adopted son have all been charged with attempting to kill the witch’s husband so as to cash in on a life insurance policy.
Amy Pearson, 42, was also involved in a perverted relationship with her adopted son, 21-year-old Michael Bessey, a law enforcement report released Monday stated, and had nearly finalized a divorce with Robert Bessey, 49.
Once the divorce was completed, Pearson would no longer have a legal claim to the $250,000 life insurance policy, the cops report said.
On Nov. 14, Robert Bessey was driving his car on Interstate 15 when a gold SUV pulled up next to him and one of the occupants shot him in the neck. Bessey survived the attempt on his life, however, and called 911 with his cellphone.
“He and Amy Pearson were to receive $400,000 in total benefits,” the cops report stated. “He was going to buy a truck, his mother was going to pay off her mortgage, and the two would never have to work again.”
Interviewed by law enforcement officials, Amy Pearson’s sister-in-law recounted how Pearson lamented turning to the younger Bessey to kill his adopted father.
“That’s what happens when you send a boy to do [a] woman’s work,” Pearson was reported to have said, according to the cops report.
