“The entire Geico community is hurting today,” a co-worker said after word spread that the couple involved in Wednesday’s murder-suicide in Lakeland were long-time Geico employees Mark Waggoner, 50, and Heather Waggoner, 41. Police haven’t confirmed the identities, but said a man shot and killed his estranged wife at her Oakbridge apartment before driving home and turning his handgun on himself.

  1. I worked with them both. Knew them even before they were married.. Never In a million years would I have thought Mark was like that.. So very very sad. They were a great power couple when I knew them..
    RIP Mark and Heather.
