The community was shocked by Wigglesworth’s death. Many expressed surprise at his passing and the manner in which it happened. According to a report from Law and Crime, a friend on Facebook posted that they had known the couple for years and were in “complete shock” after the news.
While the police have detained Mrs. Wigglesworth on suspicion of murder, they are still actively investigating the case.
