Slain mum Cassie Carli feared ‘abusive’ ex reports

Slain mother Cassie Carli, whose body was found in a shallow grave in Alabama, was reportedly so scared of her “abusive” ex-boyfriend that she asked her father to bring a gun to the custody picks.

Carli, 37, had ominously warned her sister before her death that her ex-boyfriend Marcus Spanevelo, 34, could be to blame “if anything happens to her,” the US Sun reported.

“He was never physically with her or laid hands on her but he knew she feared him and I think he used that against her,” her sister Raeanne told the news outlet. “But at one point he was also nice to her and tried to get her to take her to the station.”

She added, “Cassie said he was crazy and would sometimes ask my dad to come with her to a child swap and tell him, ‘Please bring your gun,’ because he has a concealed stretcher.”

“Concealed carry” refers to a permit that allows a person to be armed with a handgun that is not carried in plain sight of others.

Carli had also considered getting such approval in the weeks leading up to her death, but she paused briefly when Spanevelo became consensual and she was “on guard,” Raeanne told the US Sun.

Authorities found Carli buried Saturday night in a barn in Springville, about 300 miles north of where she was last seen in Navarre Beach, Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson said.

The gruesome discovery was made almost a week after Carli went missing while she was picking up her 4-year-old daughter Saylor in a custody swap with Spanevelo.

Spanevelo was arrested during a traffic stop in Lebanon, Tenn., and charged with tampering with and destroying evidence and providing false information related to the investigation, the sheriff said.

The charges against Spanevelo – who the sheriff says has ties to the property – are set to be stepped up after an autopsy is completed, the US Sun reported.

Raeanne said that while she was unaware that Spanevelo had “laid hands on Cassie” during their relationship, her sister was alarmed by the way he spoke to her and looked at her.

“It might have been something small, but it was the way he said things to her and the way he looked at her that freaked her out,” Raeanne told the US Sun.

“He was just scary … she used to tell me, ‘He’s got this look in his eyes and it’s just scary,'” she added.

Raeanne said her sister couldn’t take being with Spanevelo about five months into her pregnancy.

“There were just too many red flags,” she told the outlet. “She used to tell us, ‘He’s controlling me, he’s trying to manipulate me, I don’t want to be with him.’

“But even after she broke up with him, she was hoping that maybe they could find a way to become parents together and stay civilized,” Raeanne added.

She claimed the ex tried to place recording devices in Carli’s apartment after the birth, tracked her phone and attempted to monitor her movements and communications.

“I think he thought that if he could hear her doing something that maybe she shouldn’t be doing, then he would try to use it against her and try to make false reports [Child Protective Services] Saylor being taken away from her,” Raeanne said.

“The verbal abuse was particularly bad,” she told the outlet. “He shamed her when she was pregnant and just about everything she did wasn’t right or good enough for him.

“He called her stupid, said she knew nothing, that she was going to be the worst mother ever — just anything to put her down and make her feel inferior to him,” Raeanne continued.

“The emotional abuse was just extreme. So extreme,” she said, adding that Carli’s death could have possibly been the result of “one of those ‘if I can’t have you then nobody can type’ things.”

The grieving sister said she hopes Spanevelo “gets the needle” should he be charged with murder and found guilty.

“I want him to get the needle too, but honestly I’d want him to serve at least 37 years in prison — as long as my sister is alive — and then get the needle,” Raeanne told the US Sun.

“I want him to be in prison and see my sister’s face every time he tries to sleep and think about his daughter and know what he’s been doing every day and let it eat him alive.” , added her.
