The crime was considered a cold case until 2014, when it was reopened by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Cold Case Unit.

Investigators said Warren went to Marlene Warren's Wellington home dressed in a clown suit, and holding flowers and two balloons - shot the victim in the face.

Then, the clown shot Marlene Warren in the face.

Warren was arrested without incident in Washington County, Virginia. Police say he was present when the 54-year-old woman was arrested; the two were apparently running a Tennessee restaurant together.

Though the abandoned getaway auto was eventually traced to a rental agency Michael Warren did business with, police were unable to tie him to the murder of his then-wife.

Investigators said they believed that Keen Warren was having an affair with Marlene's husband, Michael Warren, according to the Post.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that Sheila Warren was arrested in Washington County, Virginia, in connection with the fatal shooting.

Warren was in a jail cell in Abingdon, Virginia, near the Tennessee state line on Wednesday morning, awaiting extradition to Florida. The clown gave her the flowers and balloons.




"Oh, how pretty", her son remembered her saying.

A report issued by Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said, "Marlene answered the front door and as the clown offered the items to her, witnesses heard a gunshot and Marlene fell to the ground".

The getaway vehicle, a white Chrysler LeBaron convertible, was also a key part of the initial investigation.

A white Chrysler convertible had been found abandoned on Royal Palm Beach, which matched Aherns' description, reports said at the time.

It wasn't known if Sheila Keen Warren has an attorney.

But no blood, fingerprints or a gun were ever recovered.

"This is the strangest thing I've seen in all my 19 years in law enforcement", Bob Ferrell, a then-spokesman for the Palm Beach County sheriff's office, told the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel the day after the murder.

The pair carried on a romantic affair up until two weeks before the murder and Warren's now-husband was paying her rent for months prior. Store clerks picked her out of a lineup and police found fibers from a bright, orange wig in Keen Warren's home.
