Sheriff Tony Willinger is a character in Lake Placid 3. He is a city boy turned sheriff. He moved to Black Lake and never believed the crocodile stories. Nathan Bickerman finally convinces him to go look with him so they take a boat and a bunch of guns and ride over to Sadie Bickerman's old cabin. They are thrown overboard by a croc and Tony is almost eaten. He stops the croc long enough to get to the cabin where he stays for a while with Nathan, Susan and Connor. He and Nathan try to get the car but Nathan is forced back to the cabin and Willinger tries to drive away. A croc pulls the car underwater though and pulls Willinger out the window and devours him.
