WEDNESDAY TRENDING – THE BUSTER BARNETT TRAGEDY

Lisa BrownThe tragic events unfolded last week starting in Ellenwood before ending following a police chase on Interstate 20, just over the Alabama line.

It is at Maynard Jackson High, where Brown worked as a math teacher for several years, that she met Buster Barnett, a technology teacher who still works at the school.

Buster Barnett’s school profile mentions his four-year football career as tight end with the Buffalo Bills in the early 80’s. He also heads the school’s chess club.

Police say the pair had an affair for 3 or four years — even after Brown began teaching at North Atlanta High.

In nearby DeKalb County, his wife, Sandra Elaine Barnett, worked for nearly 20 years as a special education paraprofessional at McNair Middle School.

According to Clayton County police, Brown kidnapped Sandra Barnett from her Ellenwood home after learning the married couple was planning to go on vacation together.

At the time Brown forced Barnett at gunpoint from her home, police say Barnett was talking to a friend on the phone who heard the struggle. It all led to a police chase into Alabama where Brown stopped the car on the road and shot Barnett, before killing herself.

My heart goes out to the families of Sandra Barnett and Lisa Brown. This is a double tragedy that could have been averted. It just isn’t worth it a lot of times to cheat.
