Ex-porn star is jailed for 10 years for her role in the murder of man dumped in ‘shallow grave’

Lauren Wambles, also known as Aubrey Gold, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday for her role in a murder last year

A former porn star was sentenced to 10 years in prison for her role in a murder – and she plans to testify against her boyfriend, who shot the man.

Lauren Wambles, 24, pled no contest to one count of ‘accessory after the fact to second degree murder with a firearm’ for the July 2020 killing of 51-year-old Raul Ambriz Guillen, according to the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit of Florida.

Wambles, who performed as Aubrey Gold in 31 movies between 2015 and 2018, was sentenced on Monday. 

Authorities believe that Wambles’ boyfriend, William Shane Parker, is the one who shot Guillen. He’s awaiting trial on a charge of second degree murder with a firearm. No motive for the killing has been given, although investigators say they believe it was linked to a drugs dispute. 

Guillen, the victim, was last seen at the Graceville, Florida home of Jeremie Odell Peters with couple Wambles and Parker. 

Prosecutors believed Parker shot Guillen on July 4, 2020. His body was discovered close to two months later at a remote location in Holmes County.

In June, Peters was sentenced to 20 years in prison on charges of ‘accessory after the fact to second-degree murder with a firearm’ and ‘conspiracy to commit first-degree tampering with a witness.’  

The 24-year-old testified against Peters at his trial and has agreed to testify against Parker as part of her plea deal, according to Law & Crime.

The investigation into Guillen’s death started after a woman told the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office she had been raped by Parker in May. 

Two months later, she told them that she believed her roommate, Guillen, had been murdered, but was unable to confirm it, WDHN reported. 

Guillen had been reported missing for three weeks when the alleged rape victim told police he was murdered, according to Law & Crime.

His Rosa Ambriz, who lives in Texas, had reported him missing.

She told the Dothan Eagle in early August, when authorities were still searching for him, that she and her mother knew Guillen ‘was in danger.’

‘My father called my mother, his ex-wife, the day before he went missing and told my mother he was with people he believed to be dangerous, and he needed to get out of the situation,’ Ambriz said.

‘He asked my mother for money, but she had just moved, and her mind was focused on other things at the time. She just told my father he needed to get out of the situation he might be in for his safety.’

The JCSO began investigating Guillen’s disappearance, collaborating with the Houston County Sheriff’s Office – from Wambles’ town of Dothan, Alabama – to follow potential leads.

It led to a break in the case showing that Guillen had been killed in Holmes County, which then brought in the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office. 

Holmes County Sheriff John Tate called it ‘a very complex case.’

Authorities believe that Parker shot Guillen at Peters’ home. He was then buried in a ‘shallow grave,’ where he was found by cadaver dogs.

‘After a long investigation and important tips from the public, Mr. Guillen’s body was discovered on August 25, 2020 by the Holmes County Sheriff’s Department with the assistance of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement,’ authorities said on August 26.

‘The 14th Circuit Medical Examiner’s office determined that Mr. Guillen died from a single gunshot wound to the back of his head.’

‘It’s all about drugs and money,’ Sheriff Tate said of the suspected motive, according to WTVY

Wambles will be subject to five years of felony probation after her release.

She pleaded ‘no contest’ to the accessory charge on October 6. 

In Florida, the charge has the same effect as a guilty plea, but instead of admitting guilt, the defendant concedes that the state has sufficient evidence to convict them at trial.
