How Rebecca Salcedo Cleland Trapped Bruce Cleland
Bruce Cleland, a shy and modest bachelor, earned a good living as a software developer for TRW.
He had never dated before meeting Rebecca Quesada Salcedo at a swap meet in late 1995. Bruce Cleland grew more outgoing once they started dating.
Bruce Cleland showered Rebecca Salcedo with gifts such as automobiles, trips, cosmetic surgery, clothes, furnishings, and a diamond ring while they were dating. Bruce Cleland, Salcedo informed her pals, was “very well off” and “earned decent money.”
She revealed her intention to marry Bruce Cleland, have a kid with him, and then divorce him to collect child support and be “set for life.”
As the couple was driving home after dinner, a guy leaped out of the woods and shot and murdered Bruce Cleland. It has been described as a fake carjacking and robbery.
The two Hispanic males were linked to Rebecca Cleland, according to investigators.
Rebecca Salcedo Husband: When Did She Marry Bruce Cleland?
Bruce Cleland and Rebecca Salcedo married in a private civil ceremony in October 1996.
Although a major church wedding was planned for January 1997, Salcedo insisted on the two being married before buying a house. Bruce Cleland purchased a huge home in Whittier following his formal marriage.
As she became known, Rebecca Cleland moved into the house alone, while Bruce Cleland lived with his parents until their church wedding in January 1997.
Cleland informed friends and acquaintances before and after the church wedding that she did not love Bruce Cleland. She intended to divorce him fast to gain financial stability and also urged her sister, Lorraine Salcedo, to assist her in finding someone to kill Bruce.
Cleland met with a divorce attorney in April 1997 and presented Bruce Cleland with a draft separation agreement that would allow her to continue living in the Whittier house while requiring Bruce Cleland to pay the mortgage and provide Cleland with spending money.
When Bruce refused to sign the agreement, she threatened to sue him for molestation of her small kid.
