Man says wife married to 3 other men simultaneously

An East Texas man says he was financially ruined and left homeless by his wife, only to find that she was also married to two other men at the same time. And now he finds there is a fourth!

In June of 2011, two East Texas men found that they were married to the same woman at the same time, 31-year-old Candice Andrede-Garza.

"She cleans me out, puts me $20,000 dollars in debt, totals my Firebird, and steals 75 percent of everything I own. I can't believe it," says Key.

Quinton Garza and Shelby Key say Candice drained their finances and racked up huge credit card debts before leaving them both. The husbands found out about the multiple marriages, and notified police.

"We did have a gentleman come forward and make a report, in reference to a case of bigamy," says Kilgore police officer Roman Roberson.

She had a third husband in Houston, and in November another discover:

"She's got a fourth husband," Key says.

Within months she had left both marriages and both men's lives in shambles.

"That's what she does that's her career, going from guy to guy ripping them off, to think that someone would do that for a living at the expense of other people knowing what it would do to their lives," Key says.

The Gregg County District Attorney's Office is looking into whether Garza may have applied for divorce or annulment on any of the marriages.

"I hope they can put a stop to her doing this to people and hurting people, I loved her I thought she was a great person , I had no idea she was a scam artist," says Key.

And Key hopes Garza's habit is over.

"Her playing on peoples lives and hurting people and leaving people homeless should come to a stop," Key says.

Bigamy is a felony in the state of Texas. The Gregg County District Attorney's Office says they are still investigating.

There are no charges currently on Andrede-Garza.

    The postal inspection service is offering up a pretty hefty reward after a package was stolen from a Tucson woman's doorstep. This wasn't a Christmas present, it was something much more precious, a father's ashes.
