NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A city native living in the state of Florida was shot and killed by her live-in boyfriend on Saturday, Jan. 21, at their mobile home in St. Petersburg.  

Shelley I. Gold, 52, was the victim of a murder-suicide committed by Thomas P. Cappadona, 51. According to reports in the Tampa Bay Times, Cappadona killed Gold before turning the gun on himself. Neighbors described him as frequently drunk and combative. They were together about seven years.

"She was just always helpful and quiet," her landlady Paula Bouseman told the Tampa Bay Times.

Gold was born in North Adams in 1959, daughter of the late Richard Gold and Janice Belouin Gold, and was a 1977 graduate of Drury High School. A Florida resident for more than two decades, she had been employed for 22 years at Cody's Original Roadhouse.

She left a sister, Susan Bonin of Pittsfield, and a niece and nephew, Ashley and Andrew Bonin, and many friends in Florida.
