OCOEE, Fla. - The man accused of shooting and killing his wife in front of their children at a busy park, was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at Woodlawn Cemetery in Ocoee near Good Homes Road, Orange County deputies said Thursday night.

Deputies had named 54-year-old Julian Paris as a suspect in 34-year-old Liza Nicole Adderlini's death.

According to investigators, Paris opened fire on Adderlini just before 4:30 p.m. Wednesday in the middle of Dr. P. Phillips Community Park, which sits across from SeaWorld near Interstate 4.

He allegedly did it in front of two of their three children, and horrified bystanders.

Deputies had been searching for Paris since the fatal shooting and said he was found at the back of the cemetery near his son’s grave.

WFTV found out Adderlini and Paris had a fourth child, who died in 2012 after he was hit and killed by a car on Old Winter Garden Road.

Deputies said Paris’s family members found his body just before 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators don’t know why he took such drastic measures, only noting the two were recently separated.

Before Paris allegedly shot Adderlini, the couple met where Paris was doing lawn work for an irrigation client, to drop off one of their kids.

The two allegedly got into a pushing match and Adderlini called deputies after she said Paris twisted her arm and tried to hurt her.

He apparently ran away before deputies arrived.

Investigators are still searching for Paris’s car.

Deputies said they are relieved a murder suspect is no longer on the run, bu there are still three children without a mother and father.
