Tyree Parker arrested for killing Caroline Schollaert

Jacksonville News

Jacksonville, Fl. – The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office that today a man was arrested in connection with the murder of an active-duty US Coast Guard member named Caroline Schollaert last week in the city’s Riverside neighborhood.

22-year-old Tyree Parker is charged with second-degree murder.

Parker is accused of shooting 27-year-old Carolyn Schollaert at her Riverside home after she caught Parker stealing her car in the early hours of August 3.

JSO said Schollaert was on the phone with 911 dispatchers when she confronted Parker at gunpoint.

Parker—who JSO said fired several shots at Schollaert —and fled the scene before officers arrived.

Schollaert was an active member of the US Coast Guard assigned to the helicopter interdiction tactical squadron, or “hitron”, here in Jacksonville.

According to court documents, Parker was arrested in April 2021 for assault against a woman. He has now been charged with second-degree murder, but JSO said more charges are likely.

“I feel it is necessary to advise the public that the firearm used by the suspect in this murder was stolen from an unlocked vehicle in the same neighborhood exactly 11 days before the incident. So what was originally a crime of opportunity in a burglary of a vehicle escalated within in seconds, resulting in the violent killing of a woman who dedicated her life to serving her country”, said the Chief of Investigation TK Waters, who said other charges are pending.

Nelson, senior vice president for health affairs and president of UF Health. “This is not only a tremendous loss to Dr. Haley’s family, friends and the people he led at UF, but also to our communities in North Florida and elsewhere around the country.

When Dr. Haley was made CEO a year later, Guzick said, “Dr. Haley embodies all these qualities … In less than a year, she has brought such positive energy and expertise to the college that we Felt it made perfect sense for him to lead this great organization, a model that many other academic health centers have structured.”

CEO of UF Health Jacksonville Dr. Haley moved from Atlanta to Jacksonville, where he was executive associate dean of the Emory School of Medicine and deputy senior vice president of medical affairs at Grady Memorial Hospital.
