Person of Interest in Mount Dora Double Slayings Booked Into Lake County Jail

TAVARES, Florida—Vickie Lynn Williams, the person of interest in the murders of an elderly Mount Dora couple is back in Florida and being held in the Lake County Jail.

Williams, 50, was apprehended Monday in Savannah, Georgia driving the couple’s stolen Kia Soul, Mount Dora Police Chief Michael Gibson said earlier this week. She was extradited back to Lake County Friday afternoon, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Fred Jones. Her first appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, Jones said.

Darryl, 83, and Sharon Getman, 80 were found murdered in their duplex home at 161 Lake Margaret Circle in Waterman Village after security personnel called 9-1-1 to report a “suspicious incident,” Gibson said. 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.

Inside Lake received information Thursday that Williams had an interaction with MDPD officers at a local business Dec. 30, just a day before the bodies of the Getmans were found. Inside Lake worked all Friday afternoon to confirm the interaction and as of press time for this article, had not received an answer.
