According to a report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement into the investigation of the April 4 death of Tranum McLemore, his wife was found to be deceptive about one thing in their interview process - her extramarital relationships.
Winter McLemore painted the picture of a jealous husband with no reason to be jealous in an interview with FDLE investigators May 29. "Winter stated that she was not having an affair before Tranum's death and not after his death, and that Tranum had been accusing her since January of having an affair," the investigator stated in his report, adding that she noted, "...she goes to church, takes care of her children and does 'not do that sort of stuff.'"
However, three weeks later, when confronted with phone records subpoenaed by investigators, her story changed. Winter was asked about exchanging over 500 text messages with a Bristol man the week prior to her husband dying. She reportedly stated the man was a longtime friend who had recently divorced and she just wanted to get the name of his divorce attorney. When pressed further, she eventually confessed to romantic activities with him after her husband's death. She further confessed to being involved with another Bristol man since January - as Tranum suspected - and admitted the relationship was still ongoing, but the man "had a lot to lose" since he was married.
According to FDLE interviews, Winter McLemore passed a polygraph test, denying any involvement in her husband’s death.
Both men were interviewed and eliminated as potential suspects.
It was noted both Tranum and Winter’s vehicles were sold shortly after his death. The vehicles were located, seized and examined, but nothing of evidentiary value was discovered.
