Cops: Ex-NFLer’s mistress kills wife: Ex NFL Player Mistress Wife, On Thursday, two women were found dead in an SUV after a car chase on Interstate 20, in Alabama. Police said that Lisa Brown had kidnapped Sandra Barnett from her home on Wednesday. Barnett was the wife of former NFL player Buster Barnett; Brown was his mistress.

Barnett, who was drafted by the Buffalo Bills as a tight end in 1981, told police that Brown came to his place of employment on Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. She was upset about a trip that he and his wife were planning.

Officer Charlene Watson-Fraser, Clayton Police spokesperson, said that Brown then went to the Barnetts’ home in Ellenwood, Georgia. There, she kidnapped Buster’s wife Sandra. “She was upset about a trip that his wife was going on with him,” Watson-Fraser said. “It was one she didn’t know about.”

Sandra Barnett was speaking to a friend, on the phone, when Brown arrived, Watson-Fraser said. Brown was armed with a gun. The friend heard a struggle and called another, male friend to ask him to check on Sandra.

The man drove past the Barnett’s house and saw a woman in the driveway. “When he turned back around, the SUV was gone,” Watson-Fraser said. From the Journal-Constitution:

Law officers spotted Brown’s Dodge Durango in Carroll County on Thursday and pursued it into Alabama, Watson-Fraser said.

The car stopped on Interstate 20 in Cleburne County, Ala., where both women were found with fatal gunshots, Watson-Fraser said.

“The driver stopped in the middle of the highway, pulled out a handgun and shot (Barnett) and then turned the gun on herself,” Watson-Fraser said.

“We’ve uncovered a set of handcuffs and some receipts,” Clayton County Police Capt. Richard Gandee told WXIA. “[Brown] had purchased the handcuffs prior to this kidnapping.”

“Lisa Brown was actually on probation for kidnapping out of the state of Texas,” Gandee said. “She had kidnapped her child that she had lost custody of, and the jurisdiction down there had to track her for like three days to find her.”

Neighbors told the station that Sandra had recently replaced a lock on the gate to the Barnetts’ property that she believed had been tampered with.

The car being driven by Brown was actually in Buster’s name, according to Watson-Fraser, as was her home: “He said he was trying to help her out.”
