Tragedy struck the Rucker family last week when Shakeira Rucker, a mother of four, was found dead in a storage unit registered to her estranged husband Cory Hill. After a week-long manhunt, a citizen reported a foul odor coming from the storage unit, leading to the grisly discovery. Shakeira seemed to have died from gunshot wounds, but her autopsy is pending.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office released a statement on Facebook notifying Shakeira’s family of her death, expressing their grief and commitment to bringing justice in this case. Shakeira’s sister Dedra Rucker set up a GoFundMe page to provide Shakeira’s kids with the care, comfort, and resources they need during this difficult time.
The last time Shakeira was seen was at a restaurant in Polk County on November 11 with her estranged husband. Hours later, Hill allegedly went to his ex-girlfriend Angel Milligan’s home and shot at her, with Shakeira being struck in the scuffle. Hill has a criminal record, including a murder conviction from a 1992 shooting.
Sheriff John Mina expressed his heartbreak and disappointment, saying, “Cory Hill could have stopped a lot of that pain and suffering by talking to investigators in the very beginning instead of putting them through this week-long nightmare.” The police chief Matthew Tracht commented that although the outcome was not expected, there was a little bit of closure for Shakeira’s family.
The GoFundMe page has raised more than $900 as of Monday afternoon in support of Shakeira’s children, aged seven, nine, sixteen and eighteen. Her family is still grieving the loss of their beloved Shakeira, and are hoping her husband will face justice for her murder.
