Killer clown arrested 27 years after murdering wife of future husband

The Palm Beach County Sheriff, the State Attorney in Florida, and the lead detective in the case held a news conference Thursday morning.

The Sun Sentinel reported in 1992 that detectives believed that Keen and Michael Warren were suspects in the killing: "Michael Warren and Keen had several motives for wanting Marlene Warren dead, detectives said". A major catalyst for their renewed interest in the case was their discovery that, in 2002, Michael Warren married Sheila Keen in Las Vegas.

She was jailed without bail to await extradition to Florida on first-degree murder charges.

Twenty-Seven years since murdering a 40-year-old Florida mother in cold blood, the suspected West Palm Beach Killer Clown is under arrest.

Sheila Keen was smiling in her booking photo. It's got to be a misunderstanding, something is not right. "As far as I know, nothing was said".

At a nearby costume shop, salespeople identified Sheila as the woman who bought a clown costume few days before the shooting. It just took us 27 years to bring closure to the victim's family.

Shiela was long considered a suspect in the murder but was never arrested. "But now they've got to push it and finish it and go for that oak hammer on the desk", Twing said.

The case - which had gone cold - was reopened in 2014 by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
