Dave Molter gave his wife her last breath before police found the elderly couple dead inside their South Carolina home.
Accordingly to The Inquisitr, Molter was trying to save his stricken wife Corrine during CPR. The site reported that the elderly couple were found dead by a caregiver in their Lake Wylie home. The caregiver notified police on Monday when there was no response at the door.
The elderly couple had been together for more than 60 years. Brandy Williams, the caregiver, broke down after finding out that Dave Molter gave his last breath to his wife. He spoke to KFOR-TV about losing a couple she called best friends.
“Just wonderful people. I’ve never met anybody like that in my life.”
Corrine had advanced Alzheimer’s and Dave waited on her hand and foot. She told KFOR-TV:
“Just being there and seeing it with my own eyes, it’s like true love like no other. It’s the kind you see in movies, not the kind you see in real life.”
According to Examiner, “When Corrine stopped breathing, Dave wasn’t going to let her go, so he died giving his dying wife CPR. Investigators didn’t take long to come to the conclusion that Dave died trying to save Corrine.”
They lived on a quiet road, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town. However, they were very familiar faces to their neighbors. Elke Hall would see Corrine out walking and her husband was never far behind.
“She would walk down the street and he would follow her from way back, so she wouldn’t know he was following her.”
Investigators believe she died while Dave Molter gave his last breath to his wife while trying to do CPR. His body was found next to her in their home. Corrine was 83-years-old, Dave was 84.
Brandy Williams found them when she showed up at the house the next day.
“I just want to know that they didn’t struggle. I just want to know they didn’t struggle.”
Dave Molter was a well-known member of the Steele Creek Masonic Lodge and would bring his wife to every meeting because he couldn’t leave her. Wray Moxley says their deaths together are just right.
“It’s almost fitting, I guess that the two of them are gonna be together forever … I’m glad they’re together, and I know that he wouldn’t want it any other way.”
To Brandy Williams, the loss is devastating but she is still able to find a little light in their passing. She will always remember that Dave Molter died giving his last breath to his wife.
The York County coroner told WSOC that no autopsies are planned because there was nothing suspicious about their deaths. The coroner also said no foul play is suspected. The Molters leave behind a daughter, a son and siblings.
