Who was Elisa Mcnabney?

CON ARTIST, Elisa Mcnabney, was not who she said she was when she took her husband's life back in 2001.

The Florida native's daughter is finally speaking out in an interview with ABC's 20/20.

Who was Elisa Mcnabney?

Laren Renee Sims was known by many aliases – Elisa McNabney was one of them.

The Brooksville, Floridian with a dark past is known for killing her husband, California attorney, Larry McNabney, back in 2001.

McNabney and Sims, going by the name 'Elisa' at the time, met in 1995 and married in 1996. McNabney was 47 and Sims was nearly 30. 

McNabney was killed by a lethal dose of horse tranquilizer and buried in a vineyard at the age of 52 by Sims and her friend, Sarah Dutra, who happened to be her husband's law secretary.

After his disappearance, Sims claimed "that he was vacationing in Puerto Rico, or partying in Las Vegas, or in a rehab center in Florida or Washington — even that he had joined a cult," according to ABC.

Sims, however, was not immediately caught after the murder and disappearance of McNabney's money because 'Elisa' did not actually exist and she was on the run.

Sims apparently used at least 38 aliases over the years, including Melissa Godwin and Tammy Keelin, according to Oxygen.

When police finally tracked her down in Destin, Florida, in 2002, Sims was 36.

How did Elisa Mcnabney die?

Sims died by suicide while in police custody on March 20, 2002.

She had already liquidated McNabney's assets and fled with her daughter after killing her husband.

Ultimately, it was her daughter, Haylei Jordan, which Sims welcomed from a previous marriage, who called the police after being worried about her mother's behavior.

What did her daughter, Haylei Jordan, say on ABC's 20/20?

After life on the run with her mother and only spending a year to six months in one place at a time, Jordan finally spoke out about her mother and the incident that changed her life forever.

“I spent a significant portion of my life being known as Elisa McNabney's daughter,” Jordan told 20/20.

“I have previously refused to talk because I didn't want to have to deal with it anymore. I can reflect back on it. It didn't happen to me. I lived through it.”

After her mother's death, Jordan moved back to her childhood neighborhood of Brooksville, Florida.

“I came home to the town that I was born and raised in, but I hadn't seen my family in almost a decade. I didn't know what to do, because the only thing I had ever done was make sure that my mom was okay.”

“When I think about my mom from that time, for her it was about fun, until it was not," said Jordan.

"Until it was about waking up in the middle of the night and saying, ‘Hey, we have to leave.’ Because rent hadn't been paid, or she was being evicted."

The full 20/20 story will be aired on ABC on April 1, 2022, at 8pm.
