The funeral for a murdered Whitewater man was held earlier today at the First Baptist Church in Delta. His widow says the couple would have celebrated their third wedding anniversary in about a week.
Alan Helmick was found dead with a gun shot wound to the head last week. His body was discovered by his wife. The couples car was found on fire in front of his Delta Business in April. Authorities are not saying if the two are connected.
"it was a shock to us but he never mentioned anything about who would do something like that," says Miriam Helmick, widow to the deceased.
Helmick says she thinks the two are connected and hopes that authorities figure it out so doesn't have to live the rest of her life in the midst of an unsolved murder.
