GEORGIA – The family of Paul Wilson, 44, is devastated today over his murder. Wilson was shot dead as the result of an ongoing argument about his dog pooping on a neighbor’s lawn.
According to Wilson’s wife, their neighbor Larry Bates continued to accuse their dog of going to the bathroom in his yard. She said the accusations were false, the Wilson’s dog did not poop on Bate’s lawn, but even so, to keep peace the Wilson couple offered to clean up the poop, even if it wasn’t their dog’s feces.
Police say Bates shot and killed Wilson and one of the family’s dogs as they were out walking.
According to a GoFundMe page established to help Wilson’s wife, Bates shot Paul in the head and torso. The page states there were several months of harassment and seven separate police calls made about Bates by Beth and Paul to the local police department.
