Tonica Native Shot And Killed In Vegas

Posted by wlpo on June 29, 2012

A woman born and raised in Tonica was on her way home to see a sick relative when she was shot and killed.

According to KTNV News in Las Vegas, 58-year old Kathryn Wilson was shot outside her house in Vegas as she was getting ready to head to the airport and come back to Tonica.  Her son Jeffrey has been arrested for her murder and attempted murder of his father William.  He allegedly shot his parents in their car Wednesday morning.  Investigators think Wilson believed his parents were trying to poison him.

Kathryn Wilson’s maiden name is Alleman and she used to live in Tonica and La Salle.  Local arrangements can be heard on AM 1220 WLPO’s In Memoriam.
