Lawrence Township, PA – People in Clearfield County are still trying to make sense of last week’s fatal shooting that left a woman dead.
36-year-old Anthony Boone is accused of driving to the home where 40-year-old Rebecca Solt was staying in Hyde, Lawrence Township. He waited until she came outside and shot her three times before fleeing.
Police searched throughout the night for Boone, and he was found Friday afternoon near Rails to Trails in the Curwensville, Pike Township area.
He shot himself in the chest as police approached did not die. He was taken to the hospital and will face numerous felony charges for the deadly shooting.
Family members of the victim say she had a PFA against Boone and has suffered abuse from him before, and he had previously threatened to shoot her. They say a failure in the court system allowed Boone to know Solt’s current address, where she was shot and killed.
Family members of Rebecca Solt are raising money to pay for her funeral expenses, lawyer expenses if needed to fight the courts for negligence of releasing her addressing, and funds for raising her children.
Rebecca leaves behind three children, ages 19, 12, and 5.
