Missing woman’s ex-fiance focus of investigation
The ex-fiance of a Florida mother who vanished shortly after appearing on “The People's Court” hired a criminal defense attorney on Tuesday with a tie to the Casey Anthony case and the Tiger Woods scandal.
Dale Smith hired attorney Mark NeJame a day after Orlando's police chief named Mr. Smith the primary focus of detectives’ investigation into the disappearance of 33-year-old Michelle Parker, the Associated Press reports.
A spokeswoman for Mr. NeJame said the attorney has no immediate comment. Mr. NeJame was the attorney for Casey Anthony’s parents for a time and also represented Mr. Woods after a late 2009 car accident outside the golfer’s Florida home.
Miss Parker was last seen Nov. 17, the day the previously-taped episode aired featuring her and the 40-year-old Mr. Smith. Miss Parker and Mr. Smith were on the show to resolve a dispute over a $5,000 engagement ring. Mr. Smith had sued Miss Parker for the value of the ring.
They had been together off and on since 2006 before appearing on the television show and are the parents of 3-year-old twins. Miss Parker has an older child from another relationship.
The television judge said Miss Parker was responsible for paying Mr. Smith for half of the value of the ring. But she also told them their “fatal attraction” relationship wasn’t working and that they should move on to other people.
