Woman Discovers Husband's Multiple Marriages Through Facebook
NEWBERRY, SC -
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, according to an incident report.
The woman, whose identity has 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.
The incident report says the woman then found the marriage license of the November 2013 ceremony.
Pixley was arrested Wednesday and charged with bigamy.
Foster says his investigators found two other women to whom Pixley was married. The women lived in Aiken, Saluda, and Richland counties. Foster says there may be more wives.
"We don't know his motive yet," Foster said.
Pixley's previous marriages date back to 1988.
Online court records indicate Pixley was granted a $2,500 personal recognizance bond with an order to have no contact with any of his alleged wives.
