Did Larry Millete kill Maya Millete? California missing mom's husband plotted $20K scheme to 'kill her boyfriend'
Maya disappeared in January, days before she was due to meet her divorce lawyer to discuss leaving her husband Larry
The husband of the missing California mother who vanished in January allegedly thought that she was having an affair and offered a hitman $20,000 to kill the man he suspected her of cheating on him with, an anonymous source has claimed.
Maya 'May' Millete, 39, disappeared in January, days before she was due to meet her divorce lawyer to discuss leaving her husband Larry. Larry has not been arrested, nor has anyone else, in relation to the mother of three's disappearance. Maya's family is convinced he is to blame for her vanishing. In the days beforehand, they say she told them: "If anything happens to me, it's Larry."
Now, an anonymous source has told FOX News that Larry suspected his wife was having an affair, and that he offered to pay a hit man $20,000 to kill the man last summer. The source said he was still talking about it in January, in the says before Maya went missing, and that he seemed "pretty serious" about it. Maya's family backed up the anonymous source's claim that Larry suspected she was having an affair. One unnamed relative told FOX that he said of the apparent boyfriend 'I want to do something to that fool.'
They did not confirm to FOX whether or not she was having an affair, or if Larry just suspected her of it.
Maya's family previously spoke out about their frustration with the police investigation into her disappearance. They are adamant that Larry is involved and say they had been having problems for a year beforehand. They have publicly shared an image he sent them once of a bloody photograph of the pair at an altar, surrounded with flowers.
Larry has not made any public comment. He has retained an attorney and, according to police, is no longer fielding their questions. A spokesman for the Chula Vista Police Department told FOX that they were informed of the murder-for-hire claims and are reviewing them.
Maya's brother-in-law previously claimed that they went on a camping trip not long before she vanished and that she and Larry were continuously arguing during it. "They argued a lot and it was a little bit uncomfortable. It was weird because Larry was acting different. He wasn't acting like Larry. He was acting different... They were done. The relationship was done. You could just tell," Richard Drouaillet said.
The family is now campaigning on a GoFundMe page to raise money to pay for a private investigation because they think the police are not acting quickly enough. The page has raised $15,554 of $30,000 goal. They say Larry has not helped them in any public searches for Maya.
