I could never image losing one of my children let alone being violated and then watching my child get killed right before my very own eyes.
We are very much sorry for your loss.
We will keep everyone in our prayers.
May God bless!

Heard a car with a bad muffler this morning got up to check it out..Young hispanic male in a green intrepid with another guy driving..getting out to hit my house or open garage..seen me..should have waited for him to grab something or wait behind the door and blow his head off..So many people feel it is OK to take what other people have..Not a big enough crime to warrant jail time and they are back out doing it again and getting braver..Crooks never change they are bad people and do not deserve to breath the same air...Get a gun..the police only show up to fill out reports..when is the last time you heard of the police stoping a home invasion..they can not be everywhere and the 2nd amendment states the right to keep and bear arm shall not be infringed..Its us against them and their are a lot more good people than bad..Stand up and watch your back because they are counting on you not being able to stop them..

Apopka is one big crime infested dump, no one should even be surprised. Eventually it will spread to all Orlando, most of the VIP's here already left dodge city.

This is a pure shame- the crime keeps going up, and this has to StoP! These judges needs to be alot more serious sentencing on these little crimes and stop being so merciful. Now that the holidays are coming - you must keep your doors locked,
Lets fool them, Do not have gifts in your home. give out to others/
Please take pictues of all valued items, keep serial numbers and have insurance- rentals or homeowners.

Judges, allowing little crimes with a handslap brings back those who dared to go further, now this baby will not grow up to know her father, over what? a few dollars, a TV, or what? was it worth it. judges are ebing too lite on sentenceing on fraud, and little non violent crimes. these evenually grow to be big crimes

Criminals- You can run, but you can never hide, killing a man and stealing, Vengence is my saith the Lord- He will have vengence upon you and it is not going to be w just because you are to lazzy to get a job and work your ass off like the rest of us- Now your next job will be in the prison, washing laundry, dishes and making license plates Was it worth it? Wages of the sins of the father will be upon his children-10x more-

Judges DO NOT be light on sentencing- or next election, you be out of a job!

Just so everyone knows it took Orange County 20 minutes to show at a murder scene the ambulance beaat them to the crime scene. With that kind of response its no wonder the thief had time to break into anothe home before he fled . 20 minutes for a murder home invasion the police can not protect us better go buy a hand gun .BUt i do hope someone trys to improve the response time they will never catch anyone like this.
