William Mimms, 68, was Milazzo’s stepfather. According to his wife’s Facebook page, he was married to Milazzo’s mother, Connie Mimms, for more than 38 years.

Upon arrival at the first residence, officers “located an adult male and adult female, deceased in their residence in the 2900 block of W. 2nd Avenue. Both subjects had suffered gunshot wounds. A search of the residence revealed two additional gunshot,” victims, who were taken to the hospital, police wrote. CBS Dallas wrote that these deceased victims were William and Connie Mimms, the mother and stepfather of Milazzo.

“They’re just really good people. They didn’t deserve for this to happen to them,” neighbor, Kim Felix, told Local12.

Felix told the Corsicana Daily Sun that the Mimms had a son who moved back in with them recently due to mental health struggles.

“The father just rode his lawnmower over here and brought us homemade cookies the other day,” she said. “They were really good people.”
