Who is Ben Renick’s brother Sam?

The late Ben Renick is survived by his two children with his wife Lynlee Gallatin-Renick and by his brother Sam.

On June 8, 2017, Lynlee discovered her husband’s lifeless body at his snake breeding facility, Renick Reptiles, after she facilitated his murder.

She called Ben’s brother Sam and the two contacted the police.

At first, Lynlee tried to convince Sam and the authorities that Ben must have been attacked by one of the Company’s snakes.

However, her story was debunked after investigators confiscated shell casings from the crime scene.

Regarding Ben’s death, Sam told 48 Hours: “I wasn’t sure what to think.

“It was very, very hard to know that there was someone out there who essentially got away with murder. I was concerned for my own safety.”

On January 18, 2020, Lynlee and her ex-boyfriend, Michael Humphrey, were arrested in connection with the murder of her late husband.

On December 9, 2021, a jury found Lynlee guilty of second-degree murder and armed criminal activity.

Her co-conspirator Michael Humphrey was also found guilty of second-degree murder.

How did Sam react to Lynlee’s court decision?

Referring to his former sister-in-law’s conspiracy to murder his brother, Sam told the above outlet: “It took us years to find out that Lynlee was lying and that she was living a double life.

“Sociopath. If you look that up, Lynlee’s picture will be sitting right there.

“Lynlee could have made millions from my brother’s death.

“Between the life insurance, selling the snakes and the family farm she would inherit… it was significant.

“It took a lot of time to just process the lies Lynlee gave us.

“My biggest concern was to keep my composure the whole time.”

He added: “Lynlee is a manipulator and I truly believe he is [Michael Humphrey] has been manipulated to where it is now.

“Your attempt to apologize to me in the stands and evoke sympathy from the jury didn’t sit well with me … there’s no low too low — for this one.”

Sam explains his side of the story in an episode of Dateline NBC entitled Secrets of the Snake Farm.

Why did the police initially suspect Sam of Ben Renick’s murder?

Although justice was served and Lynlee Renick and Michael Humphrey were sentenced to prison for Ben’s murder, cops initially believed Sam had something to do with it.

“Sam was a strong suspect,” Missouri Police Department investigator Devin Foust recalled to PEOPLE.

They suspected Sam of previous disagreements between him and Ben over money and the possible sale of their family’s farm.

“Once we started finding out about friends, the state of the spa, how much money she owed, it just started pushing Sam aside [as a suspect].”

Eventually, law enforcement’s theories were disproved when they arrested Lynlee and Humphrey for their crimes.
