FAYETTEVILLE – A missing Fort Bragg soldier whose apartment was set on fire Thursday apparently filed a domestic violence complaint against her husband two months ago.
Second Lt. Holley Wimunc filed the complaint against her husband, Marine Cpl. John Wimunc, stating that he held a gun to her head and threatened to kill her.
Authorities discovered Holley was missing after responding to a smoldering fire at her apartment Thursday and finding evidence of arson.
Lt. Evan Pettyjohn with the 2nd Marine Division confirmed that police spoke to John Wimunc Friday, but said no charges have been made.
The parents of John Wimunc released the following statement Saturday afternoon:
“We stand behind our son 100%. The accusations and innuendo's about the domestic violence charge are unfounded. The paperwork was filed but the facts were false. There was no police report filed on the incident and john did not call me and make any statements to the fact of him hurting himself or Holley. I did however talk to Holley that night and nothing was said about any abuse or gun. John showed up May 28, 2008 at court to fight the false charges and they were dropped because Holley did not show up to face it. They are going thru an uncontested divorce, not a bitter one as some have stated. John is not considered a suspect and is co-operating fully with authorities. We are also worried about Holley and want here back safe for the sake of her family and her kids. We hope this all gets resolved in a positive way for everyone's sake.”
The case comes three weeks after the body of another female Fort Bragg soldier, Spc. Megan Touma, was discovered in a motel nearby. The pregnant soldier had been missing several days. Police said her death was a homicide.
