The woman from South Carolina, whose identity has been been protected by the Newberry County Sheriff’s Office, filed a complaint with investigators after she saw wedding photos of her husband, 49-year-old Darnell Pixley, with another woman on Facebook.
After looking online she found that her husband was already married to at least three other women and had divorced another. Bit of a player! A simple check on Facebook led a woman down a deep rabbit hole of discovery that ended with the revelation that her husband was already married to at least three other women and had divorced another.
A little more snooping around and she uncovered a marriage license from the November 2013 ceremony.
‘Then she decided that she wanted to follow through with it. As absurd as it sounds, and as kind of bizarre that it might be that a man would have multiple wives, it is illegal,’ said Sheriff Lee Foster to KLTV.
Pixley was arrested Wednesday and charged with bigamy.
‘He was not in to wanting to talk to us about it,’ said Foster. ‘He had made just a few comments regarding that he thought maybe it was a misunderstanding, but past that, he didn’t have anything else to say.’
