Connie Mimms Biography
Who was Connie Mimms ?
Corsicana police identified the suspect and the four people killed in what they said was a quadruple murder-suicide overnight Friday.
The suspect has been identified as Kevin Milazzo, who police say committed suicide.
According to police, Milazzo killed his mother, Connie Mimms, her stepfather, Bill Mimms, his adult son, Joshua Milazzo, and a former girlfriend’s 4-year-old son, Hunter Freeman.
Debbie and Lonnie Keele are pastors at Community Chapel in Corsicana. They have met many families over their decades of service, but Bill and Connie Mimms were the closest.
“This was not the work of God. It was pure evil and it was someone with a sick mind,” Debbie said. “It’s just a big hole in our hearts.”
“Attachment is closer than a family”, Lonnie Keele.
“Bill and Connie loved their children, they loved their grandchildren,” Debbie said.
The pastors said that Connie was giving, even to those she didn’t know.
“She would just pick up anybody on the side of the road,” Lonnie said. “She would say, ‘Sister Connie, does she ever meet you? No, I don’t, but you need help, and I’m going to help you.'”
A few miles from the sanctuary, Corsicana police said the couple was shot to death inside their home by Connie’s son, Milazzo, 41.
Two other family members were also shot there and are in a hospital. His conditions were not disclosed.
Officers responded to a home in the 2900 block of W. 2nd Avenue after receiving a 911 call that a man had killed members of his family in Corsicana.
Police found Bill and Connie dead from gunshot wounds.
Police said the killer didn’t stop there.
The Navarro County Sheriff’s Department responded to another location near the intersection of Garrity and Stroud streets in Frost.
Agents found the bodies of Milazzo’s 21-year-old son, Joshua, and Freeman, the son of Milazzo’s ex-girlfriend, who was identified by the family as Pattie Freeman. She survived and is being treated at a hospital.
Investigators identified the suspect as Milazzo and authorities tracked his vehicle using GPS.
Police arranged for the monitoring service to turn off the vehicle’s engine after they intercepted his vehicle on FM-1129, just south of Roan Road.
Officers then approached the vehicle and found Milazzo inside with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Authorities administered treatment, but he later died at a hospital.
Police continue to investigate what led to the murders.
