In 2020, after finding traffic camera footage showing his wife, Nancy Crampton Brophy (71, in May 2022), driving to and then departing from the culinary school during a 13-minute window when the homicide happened, prosecutors alleged that she killed him for several life insurance policies totaling around $1.5 million.
