Who Is Savannah Chrisley’s New Boyfriend Robert Shiver?
Robert made headlines in July when his estranged wife, Lindsay Shiver, allegedly plotted to murder him after he learned of her alleged affair. Lindsay and her alleged boyfriend were accused of planning to kill Robert with the help of a hitman. The incident took place months after the former couple filed for divorce.
The group were arrested by police in Abaco, Bahamas, where Robert and Lindsay shared a home. According to multiple reports, law enforcement made the arrest in July after they discovered several messages through WhatsApp that detailed the alleged plot to kill Robert. The messages were discovered when authorities were investigating a break-in at Grabber’s Bar and Grill on Guana earlier that month.
The phone that the messages were found on belonged to someone who was suspected of the break-in.
“On July 16, 2023 at Abaco, [the defendants,] while being together did, with a common purpose agree to commit an offense, namely the murder of Richard Shiver,” the police report stated.
After they were arrested, the trio appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Roberto Reckley. However, they were not required to enter a plea. Lindsay was granted bail on a $100,000 bond and is expected to stay in the Bahamas until their next scheduled court date on October 5.
