    I've found info on a physicians assistant by that name in Georgia. While other things lead me to believe it's more likely him than not, I'm not sure enough to post them. I believe that Rebecca was from GA also.

    I lived in Hilton Head for years and this is the last thing you expect to happen there.

    Very sad. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    Domestic violence happens everywhere, it's sad that neither party was able to walk away from the volatile, poisonous relationship that they had.

    We visit HHI (specifically, Palmetto Dunes) at least 2x/year, if not more often. This is sad, seems like a domestic situation. It's worth noting that Palmetto Dunes is one of the island's many plantation communities, and most residences are gate controlled. However, there are a handful of condo communities on Queens Folly that can be accessed without going through the gate house, and this is one of them. Still, I'd be shocked if Palmetto Dunes didn't have cameras up and down Queens Folly. I'm not sure it would tell us much, but it may show this man driving her car away.

    Murders on HHI are rare, but let's not forget the island birthed one of the low country's greatest mysteries - the whereabouts of John and Liz Calvert.

    Well said.

    Interesting, I hadn't heard about this case until I saw this thread.

    Since Hilton Head is an Island, and they're pretty sure he took her car, they should have footage of him somewhere on that bridge. Especially if it's a toll bridge -- I have no idea if it is. If they can't find his car crossing the bridge, he could still be on the island... I wonder if they have any clue where he could have gone.

    Also, from reading about the various domestic violence incidents, it sounds like Rebecca was the primary aggressor. I suppose it's possible that she drove him in the Jeep someplace, either dead or alive, and did something with/to both him and the Jeep. Then came home and committed suicide. They haven't released cause of death yet...

    From the above article-
    "When he was detained, Evangelista told deputies that he was responsible for Melton's death and had intended to take his own life."

    Well, a month later, he hadn't- glad they located him.
