Murder & incest in Belize with ties to WA State: Defendant Tracy Nessl a.k.a McNamara is a Grant County resident with a warrant out for her arrest/prosecution.

On Christmas Day 2014, in Belize, Tim McNamara, a 66 year old grandfather, was murdered in cold blood with a gun shot to the back of his head. His niece and lover Tracy Nessl, now age 44, first told police that Mr. McNamara had taken her gun, went to see what the dogs were barking about, and then shot himself. She later implied that he committed suicide. While the authorities were conducting their investigation, Nessl fled to Washington State. She lives on the McNamara family farm in Grant County.

Experts determined that Mr. McNamara could not have shot himself at the base of the skull based upon the forensic evidence. They have now issued a warrant for Nessl’s arrest.

Before Mr. McNamara’s death, the complaint alleges to just before on Christmas day that Nessl seduced, manipulated and deceived him into giving her all of his real estate – including the family farm, the Belize bed and breakfast and other pieces of property. He also changed his life insurance policies to cut out his own children and name Nessl as the sole beneficiary.

Jennifer Ralston and Caleb McNamara, the adult children have filed a Civil Murder/wrongful death case against Nessl. One of the insurance companies has filed a federal lawsuit because under the slayer statutes – it cannot pay insurance proceeds to someone who may have committed murder.
