Still No Motive for Francis Gill’s Murder

Francis Gill

Two murders were recorded on Monday in the city, within fourteen hours of each other. The first was an organized attack on Francis and Betsy Gill before two a.m. as they returned home from a night out at the casino. The motion detectors at their Coral Grove apartment were broken and the killer or killers used the cover of the night to pounce and open fire on the unsuspecting couple. Betsy was hit to both legs and survived the shooting, but Francis was shot to the neck and face and died shortly after. It’s a difficult case to crack and despite following several leads, investigators have been unable to determine a motive for the heinous crime.
