Previous Story

Three people are dead after an apparent double murder/suicide in Wilson County Wednesday morning. One of those victims is a 24-year-old mother with four children.

Sheriff Wayne Gay says the woman's ex-boyfriend shot her and her current boyfriend at a mobile home on Iroquois Road, just east of Wilson. The bodies were discovered around 9:00 a.m.

Relatives identify her as Paola Aguilera.

Aguilera's body, and that of the suspected shooter, were both found outside the home. Gay says the other man's body was inside the trailer.

The sheriff says it appears to have been a domestic violence shooting. Gay says the suspected shooter is the father of three of the woman's children.

He says the woman had been in the process of getting a restraining order against the ex-boyfriend, but she never completed that.

A neighbor told WITN News that she heard someone banging on her back door around 4:00 a.m., but she looked out and saw no one.

Deputies say the suspected shooter's vehicle is missing and that the man man have had an accomplice. That vehicle is a 1997 Chevy truck, with North Carolina plate YSN-6247.

    Sounds as if some of you think that in every domestic violence case there should be a police office assigned to the person being assaulted? That could be arranged if you are willing to pay the officers wages.

    Anonymous, if you used your thinking for everything we wouldn't need door locks because if they want to get in they can find a way in, yet we lock our doors at night. Nothing is fool proof, if someone wants you bad enough they can get you. The whole purpose of the "paper" is not to eliminate the threat, the threat is always there. What usually happens with the DVPO Papers is that it not only serves as a deterrent, but it also gives the victim some options in how she goes about her life. And yes LEO'S do risk their lives for the well being of the citizens or do you not remember the Deputy in Martin County being killed a few weeks back, while the man was firing an assault rifle into his fathers home? While Deputy Brown was running towards the man in order to stop the threat you were sitting comfortably in your lazy boy eating cheeto's and making negative comments on WITN. The Court fails to protect the victims in MANY more cases than could ever be documented compared to the Police.

    Everybody always talking about how LEOs risk their lives protecting us. It was no need for her to get a restraing order it is only a piece paper. It would have not stop him from hurting her.

    Why do they do autopsies on gun shot victims? There's not a lot of question why they died. Sounds like a waste of money.

    How did the shooter get a gun?? The same way most thugs and punks get a gun. The "system" had nothing to do with him getting his hands on a gun.

    idle curiosity, and not that it detracts from the tragedy. I wonder about the immigration status of those involved.What will be the disposition of the children & how did the Ex get a fire arm ??
