Daniel Triplett claimed he fired Brent Mack and dropped him off with severance pay

一个 俄克拉荷马州 business owner has been charged with allegedly killing an employee and burying him under a client’s septic tank.

Daniel Triplettt is accused of killing Brent Mack, 50, who worked for his septic tank installation company and was arrested a month after the victim disappeared.

“He worked with Dan for roughly about three years, and they had kind of a love-hate situation, 我会说,” Ms Wilson told KFOR.

“He just kept feeding my dad these lies about ‘Oh, I’m going to eventually give you this company and you’re going to take over.’”

Investigators say that surveillance footage shows both men working on a septic tank on 20 九月, at a different property than the one Mr Triplett claimed he had been at on the day Mr Mack disappeared.
