FBI agents arrest Uniontown man for conspiracy to commit murder

He allegedly wanted his wife to " disappear"

CLEVELAND, Ga. — Cleveland FBI agents and the United States Attorney's Office- Northern District say 52-year-old Scott Allen Renninger of Uniontown was arrested this morning at his home.

According to the complaint affidavit, beginning in October 2020 Renninger stated to a confidential source that he wanted to make his wife "disappear."

An FBI investigation began which included recorded conversations between Renninger and two separate FBI confidential sources.

On November 11, during a recorded conversation, the FBI says Renninger said that he knew that he would be under scrutiny "once it all goes down" and he accepts it and is prepared for it. Renninger and the second confidential source discussed the existence of an unknown amount of life insurance on his wife.

The second confidential source and Renninger also discussed a price of $20,000.00 to make his wife " ....kinda want her to disappear,....you know like if they never find her...." The FBI says Renninger explained that he knows the price of $20,000.00 would need to not be paid in big numbers, as anything over ten thousand in one transaction is a problem.

Renninger has been charged with Conspiracy to Commit Murder. He is set to appear in Court in Akron, Tuesday, November 17.
