Gautier MS Shooting – Authorities say a Gautier woman was beaten to death the night before her husband allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself on Monday. Randall James Oliveira, 55, is the person suspected of killing her, according to Jackson County Coroner Bruce Lynd Jr. He stated that the pair is thought to be natives of Massachusetts and that they relocated to Mississippi from Rhode Island. According to Lynd, the woman passed away on Sunday night from blunt force injuries to her body.
Who was the victim?
Her identity is being withheld until her next of kin has been notified. According to Chief David Bever of Gautier authorities, after responding to a welfare report, authorities proceeded to the couple’s residence in the 1700 block of Pat Drive and started an investigation. When the officer arrived at the house, he rang the doorbell, heard a gunshot, and he requested that more units come.
According to Bever, after forcing their way inside the house, the police discovered Oliveira dead in the living room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and the woman dead in the toilet. Bever stated that police had not responded to a report of domestic violence at the residence before Monday’s reaction. The crime is being looked into by Gautier police as a murder-suicide.
