A ‘Family Feud’ Contestant Gets Life in Prison

Timothy Bliefnick, a former contestant on the popular TV game show “Family Feud,” was handed a life prison sentence last week for the brutal murder of his estranged wife, Rebecca “Becky” Postle Bliefnick. The 40-year-old was found guilty in May of breaking into his ex-wife’s home and mercilessly shooting her 14 times.

Timothy Bliefnick, 40, was found guilty of breaking into the home of his estranged wife, Rebecca Postle Bliefnick, and shooting her 14 times.

Prosecutors revealed that Bliefnick had meticulously planned the February slaying, even conducting online research on how to break into a residence using a crowbar and estimating police response times. The chilling details emerged during the trial, painting a grim picture of premeditation.

Adams County Judge Robert Adrian, who presided over the case, did not mince words during the sentencing. He directly addressed Bliefnick’s calculated actions, stating, “Mr. Bliefnick, you researched this murder. You planned this murder. You practiced this murder.” The judge went on to emphasize the heinous nature of the crime, highlighting that several of the fatal shots were fired at Becky Bliefnick while she lay defenseless on the ground, all while their children were sleeping upstairs.

Becky Bliefnick’s lifeless body was discovered by her father on February 23rd. Following the investigation, Timothy Bliefnick was arrested and subsequently stood trial in May. After a week-long trial, a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder.

The couple, who had been married since 2009, divorced in 2021. Tragically, Becky had expressed concerns to her sister about her ex-husband’s behavior before her untimely death. In a text message, she outlined her fears, writing, “I am putting this in writing that I’m fearful he will somehow harm me, come after me, or will try to [do] something to me that takes me away from the kids or the kids away from me.”

Timothy Bliefnick’s appearance on “Family Feud” in 2020 gained attention due to his candid remarks about his marriage. When asked about his biggest wedding mistake by host Steve Harvey, Bliefnick replied, “Honey, I love you, but said, ‘I do.’ Not my mistake. Not my mistake. I love my wife.” His offhand comment has taken on a chilling new meaning in light of the horrific crime he later committed.
