Pam Zimmerman Death, Shot Dead
Zimmerman was found dead from 4 gunshots on November 4, 2014, in her office. According to Pantagraph, an 8-month investigation followed her death and on July 21, 2015, Kirk Zimmerman was arrested on murder charges.
Investigators arrested Pam’s ex-husband, Kirk Zimmerman, with prosecutors arguing at trial that Zimmerman shot Pam in her office because he was short on cash and upset at her asking that he pay his $4000 in unpaid child support. The defense argued that the investigators never properly investigated other suspects, like Pam’s then-fiance Baldwin or the last client she saw on the day she died, Eldon Whitlow.
According to The Pantagraph, Baldwin had been exchanging text messages of a sexual nature with another woman before Zimmerman was killed, something he initially denied. Balwin and Zimmerman had only been engaged two days when she was murdered.
After seven hours of deliberation over two days, the jury acquitted Kirk in his wife’s murder. According to the Decatur Herald & Review, the jury “did not hear certain evidence compiled by the state related to the Zimmermans’ divorce, including heated exchanges between the two over money. In hearings before the trial, [the judge] limited the evidence the state could present, including information on Zimmerman’s financial condition after his former wife’s death in November 2014.”
