Mystery murder of Microsoft exec takes another bizarre twist after ex-wife’s request days after his death is revealed | The Sun

THE mystery of a Microsoft executive's murder has taken another strange turn following a request from his ex-wife just 12 days after he was shot dead.

Jared Bridegan, 33, was gunned down in front of his two-year-old daughter while he was on his way home to St Augustine, Florida, after dropping off his twins at his ex-wife's house on February 16.



Less than two weeks later, his ex-wife Shanna Gardner-Fernandez asked his widow Kirsten Bridegan, 31, for his death certificate, according to Fox News.

The email reportedly read: "My attorney has requested a copy of Jared’s death certificate for the family court. You can send it to me or to him and his paralegal directly, whichever you prefer."

"I was like who does this? This is so evil. Here I am planning a funeral, and she’s asking for a death certificate," Kirsten told the news outlet.

Bridegan and Gardner-Fernandez, 35, had been involved in litigation regarding their finances and custody of their 10-year-old twins since their 2015 divorce.

Minutes before she sent the email asking for the death certificate, Gardner-Fernandez also allegedly asked Bridegan's widow to return some books the twins had borrowed.

While the widow did not respond to the email, Fox News reports that Bridegan's death certificate is now the final document on the docket for his divorce and custody case.

Bridegan was gunned down by an unknown assailant when he stepped out of his car to remove a tire on the road after dropping off his kids at Gardner-Fernandez's house in Jacksonville Beach, according to police.

In the wake of his death, the details surrounding his former marriage made headlines.

During their courtroom showdown, the former couple disagreed on the demands made by the other regarding property, alimony, custody, and child support.
