Bauman sent a text message to her own daughter, saying “your grandmother will die,” according to prosecutors.
“Bauman believed the ex-mother-in-law was interfering with Bauman’s relationship with her children,” prosecutors said.
Prosecutors requested a no-bond warrant for Bauman “due to her ties to multiple states, finances, danger to the victim, and statement she would be getting out very shortly.”
The Kansas City Star reports Bauman was arrested Thursday, March 4. The Star described Bauman as “a well-known real estate agent at the Lake of the Ozarks, who set a boating world record in California last year.”
Lake of the Ozarks News reports the recorded conversation “portrays a bizarre scene in which Bauman told investigators in her home that she was being set up, showed them her latest furniture refinishing projects, made a phone call to Lake Ozark Mayor Gerry Murawski, left for a botox appointment, and came back to finish the interview.”
