    So her boyfriend was married to another woman? She went missing 3 days BEFORE he killed himself?

    Wow. How has this not gotten more attention?

    hmmmm if you go through her FB page in feb she said she was single so i'm going to saying this was a pretty new "relationship".
    unfortunately this looks like it will not end well.

    Maybe if her BF was married she didn't want to make the relationship public. I agree, this doesn't feel like it's going to end well for this beautiful young lady.

    Murder-suicide?

    According to his obit he had been married for 30 years. His kids must be adults, I assume. Probably around Sapphire's age. Anyway, maybe Sapphire threatened to tell his wife about their (secret?) relationship and he panicked and killed her first and then ended his life himself.

    It could be anything. He wasn't all that concerned about being found out - he posed for lots of pics on her facebook page.

    I'm sure you're right - with her being nearly 30 years (27 to be precise) his junior it's very likely he does have kids around her age.

    I wonder if that may be how they met?

    And i noticed the comment she made in June that he was the man she was going to marry, so it must have been fast and furious. Ugh, I feel really bad about this one :(

    I also noticed she shows worked at "Revel" - when you click on that it was a casino resort in Atlantic City (closed in September 2014). There are also some horse racing pictures on her FB - maybe they liked to gamble together (could have been some financial problems?)

    I am wondering if he lied to her about being married. In that case he would have had to allow some photos not to raise suspicion. His wife appears to have a FB as well. In this scenario - perhaps she learned he was married a few days ago and confronted him threatening to go to his wife? maybe she was pregnant which would be another twist that would push him to panic. So many scenarios but I agree this does not look good.

    I thought that maybe Sapphire didn't know he was married also. Maybe girlfriend or wife found out and things got hectic!!!
    Wonder if he left a note!!

    THE MAN whom Sapphire Wiggins told her dad she'd marry, the guy she gushed over in Facebook posts, is dead and the Atlantic City woman won't be there for his funeral today.
    His family declined to comment yesterday, and it's unclear if Wiggins knew about his marriage.
    Atlantic City police declined to comment on possible connections between Shelton's death and Wiggins' disappearance - first reported by the Press of Atlantic City - claiming that it was still considered a missing-persons case with no developments yesterday.
    Sapphire's father, said he last saw her a few months ago when she brought Shelton to his home in North Philly.

    "They told me they were getting married," said David Wiggins, 58. "He seemed like a pretty nice guy. He didn't talk much. I told her if she's happy, I'm happy for her."

    So is the thinking that he killed her and then himself a few days later? Or had she left him and he became distraught when he could't find her? He certainly did not hide his relationship with Sapphire, at least in having pics taken together. Did he work at casino too and lost his job? I know thousands did last month. Anyway, lots of ?'s.

    She has a son. There is no mention of him missing also so perhaps he lives elsewhere. Also no mention of her dropping him off with family before going missing.
