This Old Lady Is An O.G. For Real!!

- By Bossip Staff

Don’t let Betty Neumar’s mugshot fool you: she’s a stone cold killer.

All five of Betty’s husbands died under suspicious circumstances, but she’s managed to avoid prosecution until now.

This 79-year-old grandmother has left a trail of five dead husbands in five different states over the last 56 years.

Now the ‘black widow’ is due to go on trial for hiring a hitman to kill her fourth partner.

Betty Neumar, of Georgia, tried three times to find someone to kill Harold Gentry in the six weeks before his bullet-riddled body was found in 1986, authorities say.

The Augusta widow’s trial for three counts of solicitation to commit first-degree murder has been delayed to give a new prosecutor more time to prepare a case.

Mr Gentry’s brother Al said his health is failing and he is running out of time to see the trial happen over the July 1986 death.

‘I can’t do it much longer,’ the 65-year-old, of Rockwell, said. ‘But I know I have to stay strong and speak for my brother. He doesn’t have a voice.’

He has been trying to get investigators to re-open the case into his brother’s death for two decades, before Neumar was arrested in 2008 and then released in 2009.

Neumar, whose trial was expected to have started on February 7, has been married five times since the 1950s and each union ended with her husband’s death, authorities discovered.

Investigators in three states reopened several of the cases but have since closed them, and she has only been charged in the death of retired soldier Harold Gentry, of Norwood, North Carolina.

Michael Sills, whose father Richard was Neumar’s third husband, wants police to reopen his father’s death in 1967, which was ruled a suicide.

‘I know what Al is going through,’ he said.

Neumar met Richard Sills in the 1960s in Jacksonville, Florida, but his body was later found in the bedroom of their Big Coppitt Key mobile home in April 1967.

Neumar said he pulled out a gun and shot himself after they had an argument, but after she was charged in North Carolina, Florida authorities took another look at his death.

They found that he may have been shot twice, not once as Neumar had told police, but no autopsy was performed at the time so there is no way to know if the death was suicide or homicide.

Georgia authorities closed their re-examination of the death of her fifth husband, John Neumar, after saying they have no evidence she was involved.

Ohio investigators also closed their investigation of the 1970 shooting death of her first husband, Clarence Malone.

But details about her second husband, James Flynn, are sketchier after she told investigators he ‘died on a New York pier’ in the mid-1950s.

  • ms.brilly

    Okay, I’m a little under the weather so maybe I’m not reading this right. Based on the last two paragraphs, her first husband was killed in 1970 and her second husband was killed in the 50s. So did she come back like 20 years later and murk the first husband? She killed the second husband first, then husbands 3-5 and came back for the 1st? That’s kind of gully.

      Wow Rose, once for a change I actually agree with you. Well now days it’s more about how much money you have. More money = better lawyers. I still think it’s not ok that you are racist. Like my people (I’m european) were attacked by Nazis in II. WW and I don’t hate Germans now cuz of it. Hate only breeds hate. Peace.

      @ROSE Please STFU with that “you have to have power over another race to be racist” nonsense. I’m black and I hate when black people say that to give themselves an excuse to be racist towards whites. If you hate another race and exercise that hatred through your words and actions, then you are RACIST. Point blank. Power or no power.

    Miss Eldona? Is that you?

  • Hmm

    Five dead husbands and she’s only being charged in one case ok Im aware of the law but how much circumstantial evidence to convict someone with five dead husband, ok the dead of the first I can comprehend that we can most certainly not rule out a natural cause but after the third death, that should raise some eyebrows.

  • Illuminate Truth "I'd rather die as a lion than live as a lamb"

    …and ignore the statements referring to you as “racist”. I’ve been called the same but I OVERstand the lost mentality of people that don’t get the fact that loving your own and wanting to expose TRUTHS about a society built around white supremacy for the sake of your own is not racist…its survival.
