JetFreak89 Posted April 14, 2021 Share Posted April 14, 2021 Another great Jet WR loses his daughter. Prayers to the Toon family! https://nypost.com/2021/04/13/molly-lillard-daughter-of-al-toon-dead-in-apparent-murder-suicide/ Molly Lillard, the daughter of New York Jets great Al Toon, was fatally shot Sunday at her Arizona home in an apparent murder-suicide, a report said. Police believe Lillard’s husband, 36-year-old Royce Lillard III, shot her before turning the gun on himself in their Scottsdale house. The couple’s 8-month-old child was there at the time and was not injured, police said. Royce Lillard is suspected of killing his wife sometime before 5 p.m. When police showed up to their residence, he barricaded himself inside. A SWAT team entered the home at about 10:45 p.m., finding him dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police. The couple’s infant is being cared for by the family. Molly Lillard was a standout volleyball player, both at her Wisconsin high school and later at the University of Michigan, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Her father, Toon, set football records at University of Wisconsin before getting drafted by the Jets. The wide receiver made it to the Pro Bowl three times in eight years.
