Why does Wilson believe that Gatsby killed Myrtle?
Wilson assumed that who ever was driving the yellow car was Myrtle's affair and the one who killed her. He believed Gatsby was the one who did it because Tom told him that Gatsby was the owner of the yellow car.

Daisy Buchanan kills Myrtle Wilson with Jay Gatsby's yellow car. George Wilson believed that Jay Gatsby had killed her though because it was his car.
(They have an affair with each other. this book was so boring but I'm pretty sure that's what it was.) NO. George and Myrtle Wilson are married. Myrtle is cheating on Georg…e with Tom, who merely uses her as an object. Myrtle is run over at the end of the novel, George goes crazy, then kills both Gatsby and himself.
Wilson killed Gatsby because he thought that Gatsby hit Myrtle but Daisy did.
Daisy killed Myrtle by running her over in Gatsby's car. They all assume that it was Tom Buchanan because earlier in the book, he had been driving Gatsbys white car. ;)
George Wilson is Myrtle's wife and is grief stricken at her death.He believes Jay Gatsby killed Myrtle because his car was used tocommit the crime. Therefore Wilson hunts Gats…by down and kills him.
Myrtyle was the lover of Tom Buchanan. George Wilson was her lifeless husband. Myrtle is killed by the car that Daisy was driving. George shoots Jay Gatsby at the end of the …novel and commits suicide.

\n. He saw Gatsby's car (driven by Daisy) hit Myrtle, and when he went to confront Tom about Myrtle's death, Tom tells him Gatsby ran over Myrtle.
After finding the expensive dog collar which Tom bought Myrtle, Wilson becomes aware that Myrtle is having an affair. He knows it must be a wealthy man, but does not know who.… After Myrtles death he searches for the man, and stops by at Toms house. Tom then tells Wilson that it was Gatsby who killed her, and Wilson naturally combines these pieces of information and concludes that Gatsby had the affair with Myrtle and then killed her deliberately when he was finished with her. Of course Daisy was driving the car, not Gatsby, but neither Tom nor Wilson was aware of this. So in short, Tom allowed Wilson to believe that Gatsby had an affair with Myrtle.
