Ruben Orlando Benitez, a top Transportation Security Administration official has been arrested for the stabbing death of TSA Agent Stacey Wright, 43, although some reports say the manner of death has not been reported. A $3 Million bond has been set. Mrs. Wright was separated from her husband, Lt. Anthony Wright, a Mississippi Highway Patrolman. It is believed Wright and Benitez were having an affair. Benitez, 45, is married.
News of the arrest of one of TSA’s top officials in Mississippi came the same day the Violence Policy Center issued a report that found 93 percent of women are killed by someone they know, “most often a spouse or intimate acquaintance.”
Wright was found dead in her apartment. I’m reading that she was “a young mother,” but have found no confirmation.
