          Did Convicted Serial Killer Shawn Grate Threaten His Ex-Wife’s Family?

          VIDEO

          May 25, 2018

          Amber Bowman, the former wife of recently convicted Ohio serial killer Shawn Grate, says when she filed for divorce from Grate in 2012 after just 10 months of marriage, “He was devastated and upset because he said he only wanted one marriage.”

          Amber describes Grate as being both angry and “dark” in the period after their separation and divorce. She claims that when she asked for child support, “He said, ‘if you do not help me and give me money and help me out financially,’ he was going to put my family’s names in a hat and start ‘the grand finale.’”

          It was then, she says, that she took out an order of protection against him.

          Amber says that until his arrest on charges of kidnapping and aggravated murder in 2016, she continued to hope that her ex-husband would one day return to her and their child. Does she say she still misses him today? And what did Grate tell Amber in a voicemail that she claims left her feeling “Like he would actually hurt my child or hurt my family.”
