A visitor from Kentucky walked outside of the home he was renting off Ruby Cove in Miramar Beach, to load luggage in his car only to find his daughter’s vehicle trunk open. Two females were seen rummaging through the victim’s luggage and when confronted, both suspects began running south towards Scenic Gulf. The victim’s father ran after them and detained one of the suspects but was struck in the face by the other suspect. During the altercation, both suspects dropped personal belongings consisting of clothes, flip flops, a purse and a bag. During a search of the suspect’s items, a set of rental car keys were found inside the purse belonging to a red Toyota Camry with tag number of L247490. Deputies canvassed the area and located the vehicle parked at 3695 Beach Point condominium. Due to the location being in Okaloosa County, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office was contacted. The occupants of the condo unit gave permission to both agencies to search the unit. Two females were located hiding in a closet fitting the description of the two suspects. Both were positively identified by witnesses who saw them fighting with the victim’s father.
The suspects, Coryn Nicole Wamsley, 20, of 936 Phillips Road, Cincinnati, OH and Shawna Marie Kinhalt, 36, of 7137 Woodridge Drive, Cincinnati, OH, were placed under arrest by deputies from the Walton County Sheriff’s Office and transported to the Okaloosa County Jail.
