Marshall County authorities investigate murder/attempted suicide

DOUGLAS, AL (WAFF) - An investigation underway into a deadly shooting in Marshall County.

Sheriff's deputies found one person dead and another wounded after responding to a domestic call on Hambrick Road in the Horton community early Tuesday morning.

"The female was deceased at this point and the male was transported to Huntsville Hospital by air ambulance and is currently under treatment there," said Marshall County Sheriff Scott Walls.

Sheriff Walls said 46-year-old Lori Wigley was killed in the incident while her husband, 57-year-old Sherwin Wigley, is in intensive care. The Sheriff said there was no intruder.

"Well, it's a domestic situation, apparently murder-attempted suicide," said Walls.

Without a history of domestic violence, why is a big question.

"I have no idea. Have no previous calls to this residence and no issues that we know of," explained Walls.

Walls said Sherwin Wigley was a retired postal worker. According to a postal service website, Lori Wigley was recently named as the postal service's district manager for Alabama.

"Actually, investigators came out of Birmingham from the U.S. Postal Service. They were on scene," said Walls.

The town's mayor said the family is pretty well known in the area.

"I would just hope that God will give them peace and comfort and help them to cope with this," said Mayor Phillips.

Although no charges have yet been filed, Sheriff walls said they will be if Wigley recovers and is released from the hospital.
