Kathleen Dorsett was a former schoolteacher whose father owned an air conditioning and refrigeration business. They shared custody and visitation rights of their daughter; these issues often caused conflict between the pair. After marrying each other in 2007, however, they separated two years later.
Moore had only overnight visitation rights after their divorce was final, which angered her so much that she enlisted Lesley as her go-to person to hire a hitman and kill Evlyn, Moore’s mother.
On August 16, 2010, Moore dropped their daughter at their house, and Kathleen lured him inside by telling him she needed him to retrieve tools in the basement. According to prosecutors, Kathleen then used a metal crowbar-type object and rope to kill Moore before strangling him with it.
Dorsett amassed his considerable net worth as the result of a long and distinguished NFL career, along with impressive salaries and endorsement deals that brought in extra income for him.
