Florida Man Fatally Shoots Terminally Ill Wife on Day of Foreclosure Sale

Deputies: Man fatally shoots terminally ill wife near Tampa

TAMPA — The yellow house at 4316 Clewis Ave. went up for public sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

A foreclosure had proceeded while the couple who owned the home struggled with debts, neighbors said. The wife was battling a long illness.

The 911 call came at noon the day of the sale. A man told the dispatcher he had shot his terminally ill wife inside that yellow house, according to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Larry McKinnon. The man would secure the gun and wait for deputies on the front porch.

“He felt that he was doing her justice by preventing her from suffering any further,” McKinnon said.

The wife, 61-year-old Gilda Beth Willis, died inside the home. Deputies arrested her husband, Randall Walton Willis, also 61.

After hearing his Miranda rights, Randall Willis admitted to shooting his wife once in the head and once in the chest, McKinnon said. Willis told deputies he did it because of financial problems and his wife’s extensive medical history. His wife, Willis said, did not ask for it to happen.
