Georgia Teacher Kidnapped and Killed By Husband's Mistress

On Thursday, July 16, Sandra Barnett was kidnapped by her husband’s girlfriend and taken away from her home in a black Dodge Durango according to police.

Barnett was a beloved special needs teacher at McNair Middle School and married to former NFL player Buster Barnett.

11Alive reports, 49 year-old Barnett died after her kidnapper, Lisa Brown, shot her in the Durango while it was stopped on Interstate 20. Brown then shot herself, police said.
On Wednesday afternoon neighbors say they spotted a black Dodge Durango outside of the Barnett's house. Barnett recently replaced the lock on her gate due to someone tampering with the latch, causing neighbors to become suspicious. 

"Sandra was actually on the telephone with a friend when Lisa showed up at the front door," Clayton County Police Capt. Richard Gandee told 11Alive . "Lisa Brown was actually driving a vehicle owned by Buster."

On Thursday police spotted the Durango at a truck stop on I-20 and a chase ensued. Brown led officers on a chase that crossed state lines causing the Alabama State Patrol to join in.

At mile marker 208 the vehicle stopped while being pursued. Clayton County police report the Brown retrieved a gun and shot both Barnet and herself.

"We've uncovered a set of handcuffs and some receipts," Gandee said. "[Brown] had purchased the handcuffs prior to this kidnapping."

Coworkers and friends are mourning the death of this teacher.

"Everybody just remembers this bubbly, happy spirit -- just happy," co-worker Nimet Muhammad told 11Alive. "Every day at work, you could just count on her.

Police say Brown who was also a teacher had been in an affair with Buster Barnet for several years and had previous run ins with the law.

"Lisa Brown was actually on probation for kidnapping out of the state of Texas," said Gandee. "She had kidnapped her child that she had lost custody of, and the jurisdiction down there had to track her for like three days to find her."

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation has taken over the case.
