Family members questioned in death of Coral Springs woman

Marilyn Clark Bevins, 60, found with multiple gunshot wounds

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – A woman who was shot and killed inside her Coral Springs home Tuesday morning has been identified by police as Marilyn Clark Bevins.

The shooting was reported about 4 a.m. at a home in the 4700 block of Northwest 87th Lane.

Police said Bevins, 60, was found with multiple gunshot wounds. She was taken to Broward Health North, where she was pronounced dead.

Police said they are not searching for a shooter, but are questioning family members who were home at the time of the shooting.

"They're continuing to interview them to see who was in the house at the time, (and) who had contact with her so they can better develop who committed this crime," Capt. Brad McKeone said.

No suspects have been named in the case.

Neighbors said they were awoken by about four shots, but said they weren't aware that the family had any issues.

"I really can't say anything about any kind of disputes with family or stuff like that," neighbor Dorothy Green said. "They seem really nice (and) quiet, just like the rest of the neighborhood."

The Bevins' family attorney, Guy Fronstin, released the following statement to Local 10 News on Thursday: "The Bevins family is extremely appreciative of the hard work and tireless effort the Coral Springs Police Department is committing to solving the murder of Marilyn. Mr. Bevins and his children have been fully engaged in the investigation and immediately respond to every request made by the Coral Springs Police Department and they will continue to do so until the perpetrator of this horrific crime is brought to justice."

Anyone with any information on the shooting is asked to contact Detective David Young at 954-346-1219.
