‘Family Feud’ Contestant Arrested for Murdering Estranged Wife Before She Could Pick Up Her Children – Crime Online
The estranged husband of an Illinois woman who was found fatally shot last month was arrested Monday in connection with her death.
Tim Bliefnick, 39, allegedly shot Rebecca Bliefnick, 41, who was found dead at her Quincy home by a family member on February 23. He was arrested this week and charged with first-degree murder.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, the incident happened inside Rebecca Bliefnick’s residence in the 2500 block of Kentucky Road, around a mile away from the defendant’s home.
Court documents indicate that the pair were going through a divorce at the time of the incident, filed in 2021, with the latest court hearing in April this year. Judge Debra Wellborn has since had the documents sealed.
Tim’s arrest reportedly comes 12 days after police searched his home, which is also in Quincy, and on the same road as Rebecca’s home.
According to KHQA, Tim appeared on the game show “Family Feud” in 2021.
Jailed without bond, Tim is charged with first-degree murder and home invasion. Quincy Police Chief Adam Yates said no other suspects have been identified in this case, Muddy River News reported.
Yates said, “This is an act of domestic violence.”
