North Carolina Wife Kills Husband And Couple After Finding Them In Middle Of Threesome Together

A North Carolina wife, 42-year-old Crystal Leah Gambino, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder after allegedly shooting her husband and a couple that she found engaged in a threesome. The angry wife found her husband, 40-year-old Giovanni James Gambino, in bed with a strange couple and retaliated by shooting all three victims in the bedroom where she found them.

The Daily Mail reports that 42-year-old Crystal Gambino has been arrested and charged with three counts of first-degree murder after her husband and another couple were found dead with gunshot wounds. The other couple, 39-year-old Geoffrey and 33-year-old Stephanie Lynn Sanchez, were allegedly engaging in a sexual act with Gambino’s husband when the woman returned home and opened fire on the threesome. After killing the trio, Crystal allegedly called another family member and informed them that she had killed her husband after she caught him engaging in sex with another couple and said she had “took care of the bodies.”

Police were alerted to a potential situation at Gambino’s North Carolina home when a 911 caller, who identified himself as Crystal Gambino’s brother-in-law, called the emergency line to report a strange conversation that the angry wife had with another relative. The caller claimed that Crystal had called another family member and confessed to killing her husband after finding him in bed with a strange couple. Crystal reportedly told the family member that she had killed them all but that she had “cleaned up the bullet casings” in the home and “took care of the bodies.” The caller indicated that Gambino had suggested she took the female victim’s body and placed it in a wheelbarrow before dumping it on a burn pile.

The 911 caller stated that he didn’t know if Crystal’s story was true or not because she had made up stories in the past but is “moderately crazy.” The police responded to the Gambino home and found the two male victims dead in the bedroom with the third female victim’s body outside. The murder appeared to have taken place in the bedroom of the home and the female was moved, likely in the wheelbarrow, as Crystal allegedly told her family member in the phone call.

According to WNCN, Gaston County Police Captain Curtis Rosselle notes that all three victims, including Gambino’s husband, were found naked upon arrival, which correlates with the story Gambino told her family member suggesting the trio were engaged in a threesome when she arrived back to the home and shot them all.

“We believe they were all three shot inside the house, in a bedroom, and then one of the victims, the female victim, was moved outside.”

Rosselle notes that the Gaston County Police are still trying to uncover how Gambino met the couple and will be examining phone and computer records to reveal how the husband met the pair.

“What we are trying to resolve now or find out is how these three people came together, how they knew each other, and that is being done through phone records and computers. This is something we are going to take our time with. I would say weeks.”

It was also noted that the Gambinos had a history of dysfunction, with Crystal once filing a restraining order against her husband before filing for divorce. Crystal also requested custody and support for the couple’s one child, but the case was later dismissed. Financial issues were also evident for the couple as Crystal had reportedly filed bankruptcy twice and violence was reported in Crystal’s past. A neighbor of the woman says that Crystal once pointed a gun at her during a dispute, but instead of filing charges, the neighbor decided to just stay away from the unstable neighbor because she didn’t think that Crystal would actually shoot her.

“I really didn’t think she was going to shoot me. I just thought the best thing I needed to do was leave her alone.”

The scorned wife is scheduled to appear in court once more on March 21.
