GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Despite the pouring rain, those who knew and loved Aaron Wilson stood outside his home-turned-crime-scene on Sunday; huddled together under small umbrellas in disbelief.

"I'm going to truly miss my brother. I can't even believe his house right now, just seeing him sit on his porch," said Jeanette Mills, Aaron's sister. 

Around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, police were called to the scene after one of Wilson's cousins got a phone call that his door was open. 

"My cousin came and I said 'Go in and check on him, but I'm on my way,' cause it was out of his character. That's something he didn't do," said Christopher Hall, Sr.

Family and friends describe 63-year-old Wilson as kind, caring, generous and an all around good guy. 

"Retired military, retired from the postal service. I mean, everybody loved Trouble," said Hall.

Although he was affectionately known as Trouble, Wilson's nickname didn't at all reflect his character.

"His name is Trouble, but he is opposite of his name. He got that nickname when he was growing up because he always got into things. He was inquisitive," said Hall.

Wilson's sister says he would have given anyone the shirt off his back. Family members hope his generosity didn't have anything to do with his murder.

"I told him do not trust everybody that come in and out of your house," said Olivia Williams-Mccullum.

As his loved ones grieve what they call a tremendous loss, at the same time, they can't help but want justice to be served.

"Whoever killed him, I hope and pray that they get caught - and caught soon - and serve the rest of their life in prison," said Williams-Mccullum.

In what appears to be his final Facebook post, Wilson shared a video of Saturday's double rainbow saying in part, "God sent me a rainbow to let me know everything's gonna be alright."

Police arrested 19 year old Warren Jevon Perkins, of Gulfport, on the charge of 2nd Degree Murder. Anyone with information is asked to call the Gulfport Police Department at 228-868-5959.
