Alan Thicke‘s mother-in-law has been charged as the mastermind behind the March disappearance of her Dutch husband, who was found brutally murdered a week after he was reported missing.
The mother of the ex-Growing Pains star’s third wife, Tanya Callau, is accused of orchestrating the gruesome slaughter of her husband, Petrus Jacobus Geradus Dekker, in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
The man was found about 1,100 yards from the couple’s $3 million, 1,400-acre cattle ranch.
According to The National Enquirer, a local worked confessed to law enforcement authorities that Thicke’s mother-in-law Miriam, 66, had paid him $4,000 to make her husband “disappear.”
“Alan is shocked by the news and deeply troubled by what may have happened,” a source told the magazine.
“Right now, he doesn’t know what to think. He’s just waiting for the local authorities to complete their investigation.”
