The parents of Indiana college football player Cam Wilson were killed in what police are investigating as a possible murder-suicide.
Cassondra Wilson, a prominent businesswoman, was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head at around 9pm Friday in an apartment in Columbus, Indiana.
The 45-year-old’s death was ruled a homicide. Police said she did not live at the apartment where she was killed and did not reveal who did.
About three hours later, Cassondra’s ex-husband Troy Wilson, Cam’s father, was found dead in an office building in Indianapolis. An autopsy determined he died by suicide.
Columbus police Lt Matt Harris said investigators were not ready to label the case a murder-suicide, but said Troy is a person of interest in Cassondra’s death.
Harris said that Cassondra had a valid restraining order against Troy.
The parents – who divorced last May – are survived by three children, including their football star son Cam.
Cam, 21, was a stand-out wide receiver at Columbus East High School, earning the title of Indiana Football Coaches Association All-Star before graduating in 2016.
He began his collegiate career at Illinois State but transferred to Indiana University in 2018, sitting out his first year due to NCAA transfer rules.
He played three games for the Hoosiers last season.
Indiana head coach Tom Allen released a statement about the Wilsons’ deaths on Sunday.
‘Our thoughts and prayers are with Cam and his family,’ Allen said.
‘We’ve been in contact and communication with Cam once we learned of this tragedy. He is a tremendous young man, and we will continue to assist and support him in any and all ways.
