The Wilmington, Del., UPS worker left his job, uprooted his family and moved from the Florida Panhandle to Wilmington because [Fields] begged him to do so one day after being questioned by investigators. Not long after she begged him to move back, and when he didn't, he paid the price. "She would yell, scream and throw things at me because I wasn't leaving," Workman said. "She would tell Lexie I was a bad person and to kick me. ... I bought her a bus ticket to Florida and let her borrow my truck that was still down there. She took the truck, and I never saw her again."
