ElliotElliotSeveral deputies with the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office were congratulated for their recent arrest of a murder suspect wanted in Rowlett.

A letter sent to the office from Sgt. Chris Sawyer of the Rowlett Police Department stated that it is without question the assistance of Sgts. Aaron Tullar and Richard Harrelson and deputies Erik Peters, Justin Wilson, Christian Mowrer and Dalton Buxton, a “swift, successful outcome would not have happened.”

On June 3 at 6:50 p.m., Rowlett police officers were notified of a person down on Seafield Lane in Rowlett.

Reports indicate Sharon Radebaugh, 78, had been shot inside her residence and was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators determined this was an act that stemmed from a previous relationship, and warrants were issued for Trinity resident Wilson Elliott, 83.

The Trinity County SO was contacted that evening, and deputies began surveillance on Elliott’s home in Westwood Shores.

The following day, Elliott left his residence, and the local deputies took him into custody, reports state. During the arrest, the suspected murder weapon was found in the back seat.

The report states Wilson admitted to shooting the victim after a confrontation over a new relationship. He was charged with murder and currently is being held on a $1 million bond.

The letter states it was written “on behalf of the Rowlett Police Department to recognize the assistance and efforts that your deputies took to assist us in bringing this case to a close and seeking justice for the victim and her family.”
