Clown shot woman in face while holding balloons in 'love triangle killing'

Police issued an arrest warrant for Sheila Warren in August and tracked her to Blue Ridge Mountains home in Virginia, where she was arrested on Tuesday.

THE mystery of a mum offered flowers and then shot dead by a clown carrying balloons could be solved 27 years later after cops arrested her husband's new wife.

As RadarOnline.com has learned, Sheila Keen Warren, 54, was arrested on account of first-degree murder for shooting Marlene Warren, 40, to death in 1990.

Soon after the clown handed over the flowers and balloons to Marlene, the clown pulled out a gun and shot her in the face.

Fast-forward 27 years to September 26, when police arrested Sheila Keen Warren in Virginia.

In 2014, Palm Beach County deputies reopened the case and conducted a fresh DNA analysis.

Sheila and Michael eventually married in 2002, sometime later moved to Kingsport and previously owned the popular Purple Cow fast food restaurant. of late, they lived in the Heron Point near Abingdon.

A grand-jury has indicted her on a first degree murder charge.

Police have not revealed whether he was involved in his former wife's death, although detectives did connect the Chrysler to Warren's vehicle business, inside finding orange fibers-similar to those found on an orange clown wig-and brown hair.

Police did identify Sheila Keen Warren as a suspect but she was never arrested.

'We're more than glad to be able to help to bring this to a successful conclusion'. Both she and her husband, Michael Warren, were previously suspects in the case.

The clown then pulled out a revolver and shot Warren in the face, before calmly walking to a getaway auto and driving away. She was taken to jail in Washington County where she was being held awaiting extradition to Palm Beach County, Florida.

Aherns called 911 and also attempted to look for the white Chrysler convertible but in vain. Marlene Warren was hospitalized and died two days later.

In 2000, as DNA testing became more common, the Palm Beach sheriff's office hoped the orange fibers and brown hair found in the LeBaron would lead them to Marlene Warren's killer.

But the detectives' case was based only on circumstantial evidence: A woman matching Keen's description was witnessed buying a clown outfit a few days before the homicide.
