Days before getting married, community theater actor Dan Wozniak killed Army veteran Samuel Herr. And then he killed Herr’s friend Juli Kibuishi to try to cover up killing Herr. Wozniak’s motive was money. Wozniak stole Herr’s ATM card to access his savings to pay for his own wedding and honeymoon. Wozniak was scheduled to marry his actress fiancée Rachel Buffett one week later. Wozniack was arrested at his bachelor party. Buffett is facing a charge of accessory, accused of lying to the police to help Wozniak.
On January 11, 2016, when Wozniak was recommended for the death penalty, public defender Scott Sanders said Buffett “bears some responsibility for the slayings.” Sanders brought up testimony from the police officers on the double homicide case who believed Buffett was involved in the cover-up. “You’re going to see very soon, she’s the smarter of the two by far,” said Sanders. Sanders and the police aren’t the only ones who believe Buffett was involved in the cover-up. Herr’s father Steve Herr went on Dr. Phil – with Buffett – and told Dr. Phil that Buffett belongs in jail. Dateline NBC will air its interview with Buffett on January 15 at 9pm.
