Three men indicted for murder of Citrus confidential informant

A grand jury has indicted three men on charges of first-degree murder in the death of a Citrus County Sheriff's Office confidential informant.

Jamie Seeger, 27, was shot to death in her car on July 25. Her mother, Wendy Moore, thinks she was killed because of her work for sheriff's detectives. Moore's attorney filed a request with the state asking for all criminal cases that listed Seeger as a witness. Officials gave him more than a dozen in which an unnamed female informer bought cocaine for the Sheriff's Office.

Two of the three men now charged with Seeger's murder — Lawrence Vickers, 45, and Marrio Williams, 27 — were listed as targets of those stings. A third man, Curtis Wilson, 30, has also been charged.

Sheriff Jeff Dawsy has said that his office did everything possible to protect Seeger.

  1. Senate GOP set to release health-care bill (w/video)

    National

    WASHINGTON -— Senate Republicans on Thursday plan to release a health-care bill that would curtail federal Medicaid funding, repeal taxes on the wealthy and eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood as part of an effort to fulfill a years-long promise to undo Barack Obama's signature health-care law.

    From left, Uplift Executive Director Heidi Mansir, of Gardiner, Maine, former West Virginia State Rep. Denise Campbell, Elkins, W. Va., University of Alaska-Anchorage student Moira Pyhala of Soldotna, Alaska, and National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson appear before Democratic senators holding a hearing about how the GOP health care bill could hurt rural Americans, at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, June 21, 2017. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was expected to push for a vote next week on the legislation, which would eliminate much of Obama's 2010 overhaul and leave government with a diminished role in providing coverage and helping people afford it.
