Husband of missing Fil-Am allegedly ordered a hit on her suspected lover
CHULA VISTA, California – The husband of missing Filipino American woman Maya Millete allegedly targeted her suspected lover in a murder-for-hire plot, a report said Monday.
Larry Millete “seemed pretty serious” about ordering a hit on Maya’s supposed boyfriend before she disappeared in January from their Chula Vista home, a source told Fox News. He allegedly started to suspect that his wife was having an affair last summer.
Larry reportedly often discussed paying someone $20,000 to kill the man, even as recently as Jan. 4, just a few days before Maya went missing. One of Maya’s relatives said they also overheard him make threatening remarks about the man, Fox reported.
Maya apparently told relatives during an early January camping trip, “If anything happened to me, it would be Larry.” Relatives said he often blamed Maya for the problems in their marriage.
The mother of three vanished on Jan. 7 in Chula Vista. She had set a meeting with a divorce lawyer before she disappeared, according to Billy Little, an attorney at the Cold Case Foundation, which has been working with Maya’s family.
Larry Millette at first cooperated with police but has stopped answering their questions and retained a lawyer, officials said. He has not joined in the search parties or public vigils for his missing wife, according to Maya’s relatives.
The Chula Vista Police Department said no foul play is suspected yet in Maya’s disappearance.
