BREAKING NEWS: Former Employee of Georgia Senior Living Community Person of Interest in Mount Dora Slayings

SAVANNAH, Georgia—The person of interest in the murders of a Mount Dora couple has been identified.

Vickie Lynn Williams, 50, of Savannah, Georgia was arrested just before 11:45 a.m. Monday driving the Kia Soul, owned by Darryl, 83, and Sharon Getman, 80. The couple was found murdered in their duplex home at 161 Lake Margaret Circle Saturday after Waterman Village security personnel called 9-1-1 to report a “suspicious incident,” Mount Dora Police Chief Michael Gibson said earlier this week. MDPD discovered the bodies and launched an investigation, and an alert was issued for the vehicle. Sources told Inside Lake the crime scene was gruesome.

Darryl and Sharon Getman were found murdered in their home Saturday.

Williams is being held in the Chatham County Jail in Georgia and only Inside Lake spoke with Chatham County Public Information Officer Parla Parker Wednesday morning. Information she released to Inside Lake states Williams worked at a Georgia senior living community and a nursing center in the last decade.

Numerous sources have told Inside Lake MDPD was originally looking for a local woman with an extensive criminal history and Williams was not a suspect until she was found with the vehicle.
