Winter Springs police just released a still from surveillance footage that shows missing woman Shakeira Rucker with her estranged husband. Shakira Rucker, a 37-year-old mother of four, has been missing since Saturday night, November 11, when she was last seen leaving her Winter Springs home around 7:30 p.m.
Winter Springs police just released a still from surveillance footage that shows missing woman Shakeira Rucker with her estranged husband. Police believe that Rucker left with her estranged husband, Cory Hill, 51, though it is not known where they went.
Winter Springs Police Captain Doug Seeley told FOX 35 that Hill, who was arrested on several attempted murder charges in an unrelated case out of Orange County, was seen on surveillance video with Rucker at a restaurant in Polk County on Saturday night. Because of that, Hill is now considered a “person of interest” in her disappearance.
Detectives attempted to talk to Hill about Rucker’s disappearance at the Orange County Jail, but he refused to talk with them, leading them to name him a person of interest. He has not been named a suspect and has not been arrested or charged with anything in Rucker’s disappearance.
However, Hill is facing four charges of attempted murder in connection to a shooting in Orange County on Sunday, November 12, the same day Rucker was reported missing. No other details on the case were immediately available.
Rucker’s youngest brother, Clarence Thornton, said they need a location, a pin drop, something because right now we don’t know anything. Investigators told him Rucker’s phone last pinged near a restaurant close to his home.
“The place she went to, I told her about that place, and she loves that place,” Thornton said. “[Her daughter got a text at 6 o’clock… 6:30 in the morning, saying, ‘I’m on my way’, and she never came. [It could have been from him, could have been from her… we will never know,” Thornton said.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a shooting on Sunday morning, November 12, on Holly Creek Road. A woman told detectives that Hill approached her and her family with a gun and started shooting.
No one was injured, and Hill allegedly ran away before detectives arrived. He was located in Mount Dora and arrested by police there.
Angel Milligan, who filed an injunction against Hill, was surprised to see him at her house on Sunday, November 12, and was terrorized when he pulled out a gun. Photos of the scene shared with FOX 35 show bullet holes in the walls and a smashed window.
Milligan hopes Rucker is found safe, but fears the worst. Anyone with information on Shakeira Rucker’s whereabouts is asked to contact investigator Tracy Fugate with the Winter Springs Police Department.
