Matthew Leili of Lawrenceville, Georgia installed sophisticated surveillance equipment in his house (21 cameras), where he lived with his wife Nique and their daughters. He recorded all calls made in the house and installed a GPS tracker and microphone in Nique’s car. On July 9, 2011, when Nique went missing, Matthew said Nique’s disappearance was “an attention seeking ploy.” On July 13, Matthew claimed Nique had abandoned the family and he filed for divorce. On July 16, several people – not including Matthew Leili – gathered for a search. They found Nique’s naked body in the woods near her home. Nique Leili was 44.
Matthew Leili was charged with the murder of Nique. During his trial in January 2016, his first wife Joanne Lucey, testified that Matthew gave her a beeper and had it cloned. “So when I got a beep, he got a beep,” she said. Their marriage lasted 18 months. In February, he was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without parole. ABC 20/20 will air its investigative report on February 19 at 10pm.
