Amy had been engaged in a second affair with another man that the couple both knew since May 2018, according to investigators.
The man reportedly told police that Amy had confided that she wanted to leave Todd, but
was ‘scared to death’ of what her husband might do.
‘If he catches me, he might make me disappear,’ Amy told her secret lover in the summer of 2018, according to the affidavit.
In August of 2018, police say Amy told another friend that if she disappeared, ‘You’ll know Todd did something to me.’
Another friend stated that Amy said that Todd would kill her and throw her to the pigs if he ever discovered the affair.

Amy told a friend she thought she’d get $2 million and half the farm if she divorced Todd, while he told family he feared he’d lose the farm in if it came to that, police say

On the week of October 22, a friend told investigators that Amy had called crying and screaming, saying that Todd had discovered her affair. Amy said that one of her children was refusing to get on the school bus, for fear that she wouldn’t be there when the child returned.
Todd may have had his suspicions from the very start of the affair.
A police review of his internet search history revealed that in May of 2018, he had googled the terms ‘killing unfaithful women’ and ‘what happens to cheaters in history’ as well as ‘what happened to cheating spouses in historic Aztec tribes’, authorities say.
Amy’s brother Jeff Fuller is also said to have told investigators that she was planning on moving out imminently at the time of her death. Fuller said that he had been storing furniture for her to use when she moved into a new home.
Amy confided in a friend that she believed she’d get $2 million from a trust fund as well as half of the farm if she were to leave Todd.
Police say that Todd feared the financial repercussions if Amy were to divorce him.
The husband told Amy’s step-mother that he ‘wasn’t going to lose the farm over this,’ according to the affidavit.

On November 6, four days before Amy’s death, Todd searched the internet for ‘organs of the body’ and looked at several anatomical diagrams of the human body, records show.
At 8.11am on the morning of her death, Amy is said to have texted a friend: ‘Still very tense around here. Just not sure of anything anymore.’
Hours later Todd called 911, frantically reporting that his wife was unresponsive.
Todd claimed that he had been working in the north hog building with Amy and their 13-year-old son that morning when he noticed that Amy appeared to be having dizzy spells.
The husband said he told his wife to go lie down in the house until she felt better, but asked her to grab an animal carrier for a litter of kittens from another outbuilding before she went inside.
When the father and son left the hog barn to get a drink, the animal carrier wasn’t where Amy was supposed to leave it, Todd said.
Todd told police that he asked his son to look for Amy. The boy made a grisly discovery in a nearby shed, finding his mother lying on the ground with a corn rake impaled in her back.
Todd said he pulled the rake out and rushed Amy to the nearest hospital, calling 911 on the way.
About halfway to the hospital, which is 13 miles from the farm, emergency services met Todd on the road and transferred Amy to an ambulance, taking her the rest of the way. She was declared dead on arrival at the hospital.
An autopsy found six puncture wounds in Amy’s back. Two were at an upward angle, and four downward. The corn rake only has four tines, police said.

After Amy’s death, a friend of Todd’s told police that he had confided some disturbing statements.
‘You really have to watch what you text on your phone because it could come back to bite you,’ Todd said, according to the friend. ‘You know if you write something like ‘I wish you were dead’ or ‘It would be so easy to have you killed or have you dead.”
On January 8, two months after Amy’s death, police say that Todd searched the internet for the phrases ‘thrill of the kill’ and ‘once you hunt man you will always feel the thirst.’
