Lindsey's blood was found on his clothing at the scene of his death, a residence Lambert co-owned in Miami. His  blood was also found on a Toyota Camry that was registered to Albert Lambert, according to the probable cause affidavit.

"The bottom line is we were going to charge him with first-degree murder, no doubt," Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said at a news conference Sunday afternoon.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Kimberly Lindsey and Albert Lambert were divorced in November of 2012. However they were going through court hearings over alimony and child support. Lambert was refusing to present the required documents to the courts in regards to child support and alimony issues. In a court hearing on Friday, Oct. 25, Lambert told the presiding judge that he would either "disappear or go to jail" before he paid anything.

Crime scene investigators said a a violent confrontation happened at the Palm Beach Gardens home where Lindsey lived after which her body was removed and taken to the remote area where it was discovered, according to a news release.
