Cyndi would soon file for divorce. But the couple eventually reconciled. Still, Edgar continued to scope out other women even as he entered his 60s.
Around this time last year, Edgar was heavily into a Ukrainian dating site for mail-order brides. Computer records show he sent 14,000 emails of through the site. That's where he fell for 25-year-old Russian woman.

So he hired Larry Fairfax, a bumbling handyman, to carry out the task. Fairfax says he never planned to go through with the hit, but he was hoping to collect some money from Steele first, seeing as how he was broke and his house was in foreclosure.
According to FBI wiretaps, the two men plotted to kill Cyndi and her mother while she was visiting her mom in Oregon. They were going to plant a bomb in Cyndi's car, hoping it would look like an accident.
Fairfax did indeed plant the bomb, but then went to the FBI with his plot. He told agents everything -- except the part about already planting the bomb. It was later found by mechanics underneath Cyndi's SUV when she brought it in for servicing.
But with Fairfax's help, the FBI began recording their conversations.
When the FBI showed up at Steele's house to make an arrest, they at first told Steele that his wife had been killed. They wanted to see how he'd respond.
But when they finally told him that his wife wasn't dead, Steele actually shit his pants during the meeting. That wasn't very white supremacy of him.
Steele subsequently claimed that the FBI had set him up. He'd already made a $10,000 downpayment to Fairfax in the form of silver coins, but began to say that Fairfax had stolen the coins.
