A woman who may have been left out of a will was named as a suspect in a burglary of the deceased’s residence.

Randy Leroy Flemming, of Moultrie, reported the incident to Colquitt County sheriff’s deputies Monday.

Sometime between noon Saturday and the time of the report, someone entered the residence of Flemming’s father, Handy Flemming, in the 2500 block of Georgia Highway 111. Handy Flemming died June 9. In June 1990, he won $7.36 million in the Florida lottery.

Randy Flemming gave authorities the name of someone he suspects may have taken the property. He said this person had told a witness that she wanted to get some things from the house, but the witness had urged her to wait until one of Handy Flemming’s children could go with her.

On Monday, Flemming found a fence around the yard of the residence had been pushed down. There was no sign of forced entry to the house.

Flemming listed several items that were missing: two floor rugs, a variety of brass pieces, four carved wooden statues, five push lawnmowers, a couch and chairs, a small round couch and two framed paintings. The total value of the items was estimated at $21,000.

In addition, Flemming said, papers in two briefcases in his father’s bedroom had been gone through.

Flemming told the deputy that his father had a will and there’s no mention of the suspect receiving any property at all.

No charges were filed as of Tuesday evening.
