Caller leads to capture of Lebanon man accused of killing couple
News-Leader Staff • July 27, 2010
An anonymous call may have been a catalyst in the capture of a Lebanon man accused of killing an elderly couple. Jesse Dean Driskill, 30, has been charged with two counts of murder, two counts of armed criminal action and two counts of burglary. According to the probable cause statement in the case, the caller said Driskill told him or her about getting caught in the act of a home invasion robbery. He allegedly told the caller that he raped the elderly woman and then killed the couple. The partially-burned bodies of Johnnie Wilson, 82, and Coleen Wilson, 76, were discovered Monday night by Laclede County authorities. Their Chevy Trailblazer was discovered later that evening near the Dallas County line, fully engulfed in flames. According to court documents, Driskill invoked his right to attorney and did not speak to authorities. Driskill has a 12-year history of felony convictions. His latest release from prison was June 2010.

Man charged with killing Laclede County couple
Elderly Laclede County couple slain at home.
Kathryn Wall • News-Leader • July 28, 2010
Jesse Dean Driskill was released from prison on June 9. Now, 49 days later, Driskill is back behind bars, charged with two homicides. Driskill, 30, is accused of brutally killing a Lebanon couple in their home Monday night, then lighting two fires to destroy the evidence. He is charged with two counts of murder, two counts of armed criminal action and two counts of burglary. The Missouri Highway Patrol led the investigation after the bodies of Johnnie Wilson, 82, and Coleen Wilson, 76, were found in their Laclede County home at 30499 Marigold Road.. Driskill's criminal record includes multiple convictions and goes back more than 10 years. Authorities found the Wilsons shot to death, their bodies covered with blankets. They also found evidence that Coleen Wilson was sexually assaulted. Court documents said evidence also suggested accelerants were ignited at the scene, but failed to become fully inflamed. Authorities believe the fire was set to destroy evidence of the crimes. Although the home showed little sign of damage, the couple's Chevy Trailblazer was gone. It was found later Monday night, engulfed in flames near the Laclede-Dallas county line. Early Tuesday, authorities were contacted by a caller who claimed to have picked up Driskill near where the burning vehicle was found. The caller said Driskill described getting caught in a home invasion robbery. He allegedly told the caller he ordered the Wilsons into the house at gunpoint, raped Coleen Wilson, shot them both and then burned the house. Arrested a short time later, Driskill invoked his right to an attorney and did not speak to authorities. Afterward, according to court documents, blood-stained clothing a witness identified as Driskill's was found in a trash bag in a residence where he had been staying. Arraignment is scheduled this afternoon.
Jesse Dean Driskill was released from prison only a few weeks before he was charged with killing a Laclede County couple. His criminal history goes back more than 10 years.

The king of terrors has again visited our city and claimed as its victim this time, Little Earl, the youngest child of Sheriff and Mrs. J. T. Wilson. The little fellow had been a sufferer from that dread disease, rheumatism, almost from his infancy. At last the final summons came and the last spark of life went out Saturday night at 11:30. How true the old adage that “Death loves a shining mark.” and “The good die young.” The writer has often watched the little fellow playing on the green sward in the court house yard and noted with sorrow and sympathy his efforts to keep pace with the stronger and more robust children, but often he would have to sit down and only look while the rest would enjoy the play. How we hoped that when the flowers bloomed and the grass was green again the little sufferer would be well and enjoying the sport with his playmates. But our hopes were crushed. When the sod is green again instead of playing on it he will be sleeping quietly beneath it in the silent city of the dead. The brave fight made by the patient little sufferer in the unequal contest enlisted the sympathy of all. His earnest entreaties and pitiful pleadings to those near him for help would have softened a heart of Adamantine and melted the eyes of the most hardened to tears. But his pleadings were all in vain. He has gone the way of all the earth. The little tongue is still, and the childish prattle so dear to papa and mama will be heard no more. What sad thoughts for the heart broken parents. “Papa, I’m going to get up Sunday morning and put on my new suit,” And how dear to every childish heart a new suit. Sunday morning can and the new suit was put on, but on a little form stiff and cold in death. The merry laughter and clatter of little feet are hushed forever. The little brother and sister left behind will build their playhouse without the assistance of little Earl. He will not be there to help carry the pieces of broken dishes to put on the shelf in the corner of the yard as of yore. His fond parents do not weep; we know that darkness has come to you home and sadness and sorrow has filled your hearts for the loss of your dear little boy. But, he is at rest. His frail little body is no longer racked with pain, and you have the great consolation that he is sweetly sleeping in the tender and merciful arms of Him who said, “Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of Heaven.” F.
