Joke’s on alleged killer clown
A toxic cocktail of death will be no laughing matter for a suspected killer clown.
Prosecutors in Florida announced they are seeking the death penalty for Sheila Keen-warren, 56, who is accused in the May 26, 1990 slaying of Marlene Warren, 40.
Warren went down in a hail of bullets courtesy of a killer in a clown costume.
According to cops and prosecutors, the Belle Glade, Fla., case quickly went cold.
In 2017, detectives linked DNA evidence to Keen-warren.
After the slaying, the suspected killer left Florida — and married the dead woman’s widower. The couple opened a restaurant in Tennessee.
Now, prosecutors have released 200 pages of evidence in advance of Keen-warren’s 2020 capital murder trial.
The evidence is a litany of jailhouse letters and most chillingly — a photo of the suspect in a clown costume.
“There are no words to describe how much I love and miss you,” Keen-warren wrote her husband on May 21.
“I feel so empty inside and my whole body aches for you. You are a part of me and I always feel you with me, even though you are so many miles away. I long to be in your arms to share all of these feelings with you.”
Throughout the stack of letters, the suspected killer clown proclaims her innocence.
“I just don’t understand why we can’t get this nightmare over with,” she wrote her mother on April 9.
