Matthew Pearson
A25207200

Matthew Pearson, along with Lionel Harris, conspired together to murder Ellen Bradley.  Harris had married Ellen in July 1991.  Oddly, Ellen kept the marriage secret from her friends and family.  Many of Ellen’s friends were especially surprised to find out that she and Harris had gotten married because Harris never showed any interest in her.

 Regardless, after the marriage, Harris had Ellen, who was a waitress, take out more than a million dollars in life insurance and had her name him as the primary beneficiary.  After the insurance policies had been taken out, Harris and Pearson arranged for Ellen to be someplace they felt they could safely kill her.  They then shot her to death.
