ORLANDO, Fla. —
Myrtle Beach police say they are investigating what happened at the hotel but no charges were filed. Phone numbers for Wilkerson’s husband were disconnected.
Her sister told the 911 dispatcher she had tried to take Wilkerson to a hospital the day before the minivan ended up in the surf but Wilkerson had checked herself out. She said Wilkerson had been abused by her husband and that police should check on her.
