Should Nicholas Sheley's Wife Get Part Of The Reward Money For His Capture?

The wife of a man accused of bludgeoning six people to death in Illinois and killing two more in Missouri says she's entitled to some of the reward money offered for her husband's capture.

Holly Gaul Sheley tells Sauk Valley Newspapers she should get some of the reward offered by the FBI before Nicholas Sheley's arrest last July outside a bar in the southern Illinois community of Granite City.

The FBI recently gave two Granite City residents $5,000 each in reward money for recognizing Sheley at the bar, then helping police capture the fugitive peacefully.

Sheley has pleaded not guilty and is jailed in Knox County on $10 million bond.

Holly Sheley says the reward money could help Sheley's six children.

She's been facing legal troubles of her own in Whiteside County, where she's been jailed in a DUI case.

Katfishponders doesn't know what part Holly Sheley played in the arrest of her husband, but if she is entitled to a part of the reward money that brings to mind a couple questions:
1. Has she been receiving assistance from the state?
2. If she has been receiving state assistance, is the state entitled to reimbursement should she receive the reward?
3. Does she have custody of all six of these children, or is she just willing to share should she receive the reward?

Katfishponders is not making a judgement about this matter.....just wondering.

    hell no she better not get one red cent she is very much apart of what hes done. she better just drop it.

  2. Thanks for your input Cari. You are more aware of her involvement than I am. She hasn't been covered much in the news reports, other than his call to her before he came this way. If she had facilitated his arrest then, 7 of the 8 people he killed would still be alive. Wonder if she wants to talk about that? Sounds like she's dreaming...wanting that easy money...and she should drop it. Drop by and leave your opinions any time! See you in court!


    Just checked up on Holly too! She has a possible parole date of October of this year! Please tell me they will not let her out either!
