MILL TWP., Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The “why” may never be known in an apparent double-murder-suicide in southeast Tuscarawas County.
Sheriff’s investigators think 67-year-old Richard Willis shot and killed his father-in-law 69-year-old Carl Berenak Sr at the Willis home in Mill Township Sunday night.
He also shot his 48-year-old wife Dawn who still managed to make the 911 call.
She died Monday at a Canton hospital.
They believe Willis then took his own life.
There had been previous police calls to the Willis home.
