Reports out of Georgia are indicating that the wife of former Buffalo Bills tight end Buster Barnett was killed in an apparent murder-suicide on Thursday.

Multiple sources report that Barnett's wife, Sandra, was kidnapped from their home by Lisa Brown, who possessed a gun. It is believed that Brown and Buster Barnett had been having a long term affair. After police pursued Brown's vehicle in a high speed chase across state lines, it appears that Brown shot and killed Sandra Barnett before taking her own life.
