You just never know who you might be sitting across from at the poker table. A point I try to bring home to friends and family constantly. A poker table can be a wonderful place to network, meet new business aquaintences, find a lawyer, get a job, hire the new guy, and meet a murderer.
Marcus Bebb-Jones, a 46 year old pro poker player that apparently used to own a hotel in Grand Junction Colorado. He and his wife Sabrina Bebb-Jones were partners in the business.
That was until 1997 when employee’s of the hotel reported Sabrina Bebb-Jones missing. Police questioned Marcus Bebb-Jones and he did .. tried to kill himself.
There were no charges filed against Marcus at that time, there was also no body found.
According to poker news reports from Compatible Poker, Bebb-Jones then returned to the UK with his three year old son. He started over again without the childs mother, and began his career as a poker tournament player.
While Mr. Bebb-Jones was playing it up on the British Poker Circuit, including a huge cash in 2007 where the could be murderer raked in 90 thousand pounds for a first place win, not much was being done for his wife. Her skull was found in 2004 by some hikers, yet no arrest warrent was issued.
Until now. Mr Marcus Bebb Jones was taken into custody after being arrested at his mothers house. A judge will decide if Bebb-Jones is eleigible to be extradited back to the United Sates.
