Sorry to see that happen but Joann Beaudoin antagonized Eddy Maldonado every chance she got. Purposely would go to a bar where he was and make out with anyone in front of him. Tried to make him jealous every chance she got. If JO JO would have left him alone none of this tragedy would have happened. Edwin was a good guy.

If your going to live that lifestyle thats what happens. This Bryan Bennett she was seeing was married and living with some girl named Kimmy. He was doing Joann Beaudoin on the side. Yes they did flaunt as much as possible in front of edwin Maldonado. Hang out at places like Willy's Sports Bar in Pembroke Park or Mikes Lounge in miramar and your asking for trouble.

Eddie was stalking Joann and leaving taunting and threatening notes on her car where she worked. Joe doesn't know what he's talking about and Steph, you're wrong about Bryan. They were FRIENDS! They weren't having sex. You people are pathetic. And even if they were seeing each other, you think it is OK for that slimeball Eddie to do what he did. You people are worse than pathetic, you are pond scum.

Yah he deserves prison forever but she definitly tortured him every chance. If she would have NOT went out of her way to make out with guys in front of him.....i mean really, who makes out in a bar...she would still be alive today. When you have a lose canon like him, you dont provoke. She did. How come all over town people who liked her are saying the same thing i am? All of it could have been avoided. What a tragedy.

JO-JO rubbed the break up between them in his face all the time. Glancin at him as she was all over another dude. If your serious about gettin a restraining order, why would you do sht in front of him to make him crazy? specialy if he was a nut. No excuse for what he did but she for sure could have prevented it. God have mercey on them all.

1st of all, to "Amy"....CLEARLY, you knew Eddie for slightly longer than a minute...while I'm not condoning his actions, I can tell you, after knowing him for MANY years & spending A LOT of time w/ him, socially & professionally, his action were either done under the influence of something or @ a time of complete mental breakdown!! And since I've never known him to use drugs or be crazy... I can only gather from postings about this Joann (from folks who KNOW & like her), that SHE was the cause of HIS demise! From the looks of her, coupled w/ the fact that she works in & frequents bars...she's no stranger to mind altering substances! Why is it that everyone who's heard of this case, that KNOW Eddie, for more than a minute, are shocked & baffled, yet those who are familiar w/ Joann are like, "Huh, figures!" and what's more, is they ALL kind of point the finger of blame at HER!!!???? VERY TELLING!!!!! I hope his lawyers see these posts!!!!

I mean , I feel kind of bad, talking negatively about someone who's deceased, this man had a child w/ someone, broke up & didn't kill anybody, he dated a successful nurse for MANY years & lived w/ her, broke up & didn't kill anybody... Now, he was dating this bartender, not even half as attractive as his formers, not w/ her anywhere near as long as the others, etc... and he ends up a murderer??? This lady was BAD news to begin with, I'm sure. She probably got him into some bad shit (drugs, etc.), and as HER friends have attested, tortured & taunted the he'll out if him... yeah, he reacted and "left threatening notes, phone calls, etc....but he must have been provoked

JoJo was a CRACKWHORE!!!! She was into Drugs.
She deserved it. Eddie is a good guy...those who don't know him shouldn't be talking because you don't know the whole truth how he was beaten up by Bryan & his friends. She was a mess. She ruined his life. Something's were absolutely wrong with her.

First of all let me say I have known Eddie for 14 years, I am very close to the family of Eddie. I have seen Eddie's ups and downs, but when he started dating this girl Joann aka Jo Jo he turned into a different person. Not to justify what Eddie did was right, but the media paints a picture of her being a poor victim and Eddie being this monster!!! No one was there to actually know what happened that night, there is only hearsay. I mean the people Joann was involved with are lower than life. Unfortunately Eddie didn't have enough confidence in himself to find a good person, instead he settled for trash. Joann constantly left messages on his machine as well as his family's machine using profanity and threats. Unfortunately three families have to suffer. Eddie is a son, a brother, a father,an uncle and a grandfather. He is a person, not a monster! We love You Eddie... Always in our prayers!The best for the victim's families too.

maybe you could all think about the things your saying. joann was my mother, and now shes dead because this guy wanted to fuck with her and tortue her . weather she was flirty with other people was not the problem. people need to have self controll, she was clearly scared of him and wanted nothing to do with him. not only did he take her life and bryans, but now his life is going to be over. he will get the death pentalty and die, you better beleive it. so all of you poeple that think you have so much to say, you did not know her like i did. she was a mother and a grandmother, and i miss her everyday. i hope someday something happen to you and u have to read this stuff about someone you love. whats wrong with you people?!?!

All I can say is I knew Bryan and Eddie and JoJo...Jojo drove Ed crazy, constantly fighting with him. I saw him the day before and he was so unhappy. She flirted with guys in front of him, and brought Bryan to her home to screw him that night even though she knew Eddie was up and around the avenue all night. He loved her and she broke his heart and pushed every guy in his face. I never saw him disrespect her.So, Kelly, although this was your mother and I am so sorry for your loss, Eddie was a real good guy who had just been pushed to the limit....She knew that he was in a bad place yet she taunted him all night. Bryan also taunted him all over the avenue that night., Bryan had a repuation as well for always going after women that had a man at home..He didn't care. Many people told him that one day someone's old man was going to get him and that is exactly what happened. To him, it was all a game and a challenge. I understand that Eddie had a heart attack while in jail and has a stint in his heart. They will not go after the death penalty as many people will testify that it was a crime of passion, as it really was. Sorry for your loss, but a man can be pushed to the very bitter limit. That is exactly what happned here, sad to say

I knew Jojo for many years. It's terrible what happened. That Edwin Maldonado is the worst piece of sh*t I have ever seen. The Broward County Courts suck too. Even after 3 break-ins to her apartment and his numerous threats and stalking, she was not awarded a restraining order. Not that it would have stopped that murderous a**hole Edwin. None of them were saints, but what kind of demon stalks, leaves threatening notes, breaks in to someone else's house, then murders 2 people in cold blood? Edwin Maldonado burn in hell you murderous asshole. Karma is strong, and you'll get yours.

Wow, all of this hatred and discontent and justification for a double murder. I only knew Bryan, but I knew him for several years. He was a good guy, but like most of us, not perfect. No matter what he may have done, he did not deserve to die like that. To say Edwin was "provoked" or that it was a "crime of passion" does not paint the picture of the scene. If he had accidentally walked in on something and snapped that would be a crime of passion. To deliberately break into someone's home, break down the door and then brutally stab two people in their sleep is clear and unambiguous premeditation in my eyes.

i couldn't agree more, premeditated indeed, i knew joanne, and loved her and her family dearly, and still do. and as a "good guy" myself who has been pushed to the limit by my ex-wife many, many times. but murder, leaving families in ruin, never crossed my mind. no excuse, a brightly shining and caring soul, regardless of issues and setbacks, is now gone from all of our lives. you can all keep yapping about specifics, there is no excuse for what happened, none, period.

Not sure who you are and where you got your information about Bryan, but he was NOT married!!! And Bryan was a good guy, would do anything to help anyone so before you repeat gossip make sure it's TRUE which this was NOT.

Also, maybe this JO JO was bad news.. but Eddie should have stayed away from her!!! All I know is Bryan was gullable when it came to women, not that he wasn't experienced but that he would always come to their rescue if he felt he was needed. From what I've read it seems this woman may have been the cause of it all.. but nobody put the knife in this Eddie's hand.. and he was not forced to kill a man he didn't even know. Say what you want.. but all Bryan was doing was having a good time, it just happened to have cost him his life.
