Betty and Peggy Wilson

Betty Wilson has quite an interesting story to tell about the untimely demise of her physician husband,Dr.Jack Wilson, who had been brutally murdered in his Boulder Circle home on May 22, 1992. Police responded to a 9-1-1 call at 9:30 p.m. Betty made after she returned from her AA meeting and found poor Jack lying dead on the upstairs floor. A baseball bat and a knife had finished off the good doctor. Betty was so grief-stricken that for 24 hours she couldn't be questioned by police. The following day she told police everything she knew, which wasn't much. As to the killer's identity, Betty stated her guess was as good as theirs. Within a few days, however, the Shelby County Sheriff's office passed on a tip about one James Dennison White, a known drug addict, alcoholic, child molester, & paranoid delusional schizophrenic,who bragged about killing a doctor in Huntsville. White claimed he was contracted as a murder for hire by a woman he had met through her sister, Peggy Lowe, a schoolteacher. White was infatuated with Peggy Lowe. He claimed she had recruited him with the promise of a sexual tryst to kill Dr. Jack Wilson for his wife, Betty Wilson. Police jumped on this one and paid the grieving widow a visit to inquire about her connection to James White. Betty was none too happy about the visit.
