Sheila Walsh Bellush
Birth: Oct. 19, 1962
Topeka
Shawnee County
Kansas, USA
Death: Nov. 7, 1997
Sarasota
Sarasota County
Florida, USA

Murder Victim. Subject of Ann Rule's best seller, "Every Breath You Take." Murdered on the orders of her ex-husband, Allen Blackthorne, who is currently serving a life sentence for the crime. She was Blackthorne's third wife in a mariage that was torturous for her. When she finally divorced him in 1987, he embarked on a decade-long campaign of harassment, stalking and lawsuits. He even enlisted the aid of Sheila's next door neighbor. The Bellushes moved from San Antonio, Texas in the middle of the night to try to escape Blackthorne's vindictiveness. He tracked her down and sent his hired killer, Joey Del Toro (who is also serving a life sentence) to Sarasota. Sheila's toddler quadruplets were left to crawl around in their mother's blood for seven hours before their half-sister, Stevie, discovered their mother's brutalized body. (bio by: Terry C)
