Estranged husband kils wife in Nasvhille dental office before committing suicide www.privateofficer.com
Nashville TN June 5 2012 A man suspected of killing his estranged wife at a Green Hills dental office died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound on I-24 near Paducah, Ky.
Gilbert Devon Pearsall, 51, was discovered by Kentucky State Police on the side of the interstate in a silver Mercedes. Metro detectives had been searching for him since Monday morning.
Vickie Pearsall, who was found dead at the dental office where she worked, sued him for divorce in Davidson County in October. The divorce was still pending.
Gilbert Pearsall was convicted of misdemeanor domestic assault in 2009 and served a suspended sentence of 11 months and 29 days. He was arrested again on charges of domestic assault in 2011, days before his wife filed for divorce. Those charges were dismissed.
Dr. John Williams discovered Pearsall’s body at his 2325 Crestmoor Road office behind a receptionist area when he arrived for work just after 7 a.m.
A patient had entered the office just prior to Williams, but did not see Pearsall. Police believe Pearsall was killed shortly after she arrived at the office.
