LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Court documents provide more insight into the hours leading up to Cari Allen’s disappearance.
The affidavit of arrest for Aldrick Scott, the man accused of killing Allen and burying her in Kansas, sets out the following series of events.
Allen, 43, had an appointment on Nov. 19.
Both the man she was with and a friend of Allen’s told police the date went well.
But throughout the evening, Allen’s ex-boyfriend, 47-year-old Aldrick Scott, kept texting and calling her, according to the friend.
The date ended around 11:30pm and Allen thanked the man for the food and drink via text just after midnight.
Tried to contact her again about an hour later, no response.
The next day, Allen’s ex-husband and son reported her missing after they found the door open, packages stacked on the porch, and damage to some walls.
Allen worked as a home caregiver and had missed an appointment night.
Douglas County deputies walked through the house and determined that the damage to the walls came from a single gunshot from Allen’s bedroom.
Neither the spent shells nor the bullet were found.
After hearing from Allen’s friend, MPs contacted Scott, who confirmed he had been in contact with Allen on the 19th.
He told deputies he was frustrated with her, believing she had an appointment.
The screenshots show that Scott had asked her about her whereabouts and activities, according to the affidavit.
Scott told deputies he was in Topeka, Kansas at the time of Allen’s disappearance.
Meanwhile, on Nov. 21, she called a former platoon mate and suggested that Allen was dead, according to the affidavit.
Scott told her that he had fallen out with Allen. She claimed that Allen pulled a gun on him, so he took the gun.
When Scott called again, the platoon mate added a friend who worked in law enforcement to the call. The friend then contacted the police.
Deputies gathered information about the flight that showed Scott had flown to Cancun, Mexico on Nov. 21.
Scott’s vehicle was discovered at Kansas City International Airport. A search turned up a concealed Sig Sauer 9mm semi-automatic pistol loaded with all-metal bullets.
Data from Scott’s phone and social media accounts revealed he was in Douglas County around the time of Allen’s disappearance.
Those documents placed Scott near Allen while he was at the appointment, and later near his home.
Scott is also seen in surveillance footage near where Allen was at his appointment, according to the affidavit.
He arrived near Allen’s home around 10:30 p.m. and left around 3:30 a.m., the document claims.
Deputies also gained access to On-Star data for Scott’s vehicle, which showed he spent about 90 minutes at an abandoned farm south of Topeka.
Shawnee County deputies traveled there on December 21 and found a dead woman wrapped in garbage bags and buried in a shallow grave.
An autopsy confirmed that the remains belonged to Allen. The autopsy showed that he suffered a single gunshot wound to the right side of his chest.
An exit wound was found in his back and several of his organs had been lacerated, according to the autopsy.
Eventually Scott was found in Belize.
He was arrested on December 6 and later extradited to the United States on three charges: first-degree murder, use of a weapon to commit a felony, and tampering with physical evidence.
