Im glad his fiancees relatives contacted authorities. Thats what happenes when men cheat on their spouses, they end up getting in big trouble that can cost them or someone elses life. All it takes is seconds to destroy your life and hurt others. This Gallos guy is what you call plain dumb.

If you people had any compassion for other human beings, or if you had a heart - you would not write such mean and evil things on this board KNOWING that the family members of both sides will be reading this forum! Or maybe you all just don't have any common sense and didn't realize they might read your post - who knows? Anyway, to the families - I apologize for these people, and I'm sorry this happened to both families. I understand your lives will never be the same - and it's a real tragedy. I will keep you all in my prayers.

Native, Welcome to SOuth Florida! The land of sarcasm, ruthlessness and "ME, ME, ME."

Sun-Sentinel editor, your headline makes no sense and implies the fiancee was the victim. Should be something like "Fiance turned in after confession." The victim had no such relationship with the perpetrator.

Regarding the crime itself, it is surprising this man could be described as "nice" when not only did he a) solicit a prostitute, he b) carries a gun in his glove compartment, c)uses it to murder people, and then d) tries to conceal his dastardly deed from authorities. All I can say is that it doesn't seem those close to him knew this man at all.

Again, welcome to South Florida.

I think they should just legalize the 2 P's
Prostitution and Pot!! Think about it...... The number of people sitting in jail right this minute for either prostitution or pot, has to be high.(no pun intended) Legalize both of them, and free up all that room for the folk who commit murder, rape, kidnapping, child molestation, you know the folks that are out stabbing, and shooting, beating, robbing people!! Not John Doe who just wants to get "his rocks off." Not Cindy, The Hooker, who is trying to make a little bit of cash!! Most importantly, not Johnny Pothead who wants to puff on a joint every once in awhile!! Meanwhile, we have people guilty of hiddeous crimes just walking around town!!! Legalize the two P's and things will not be as bad!!

You know... not only did he do something horrible to this lady, but he had a fiance at home to give him what he wanted. He could have gone home to his "wifey" like a normal man, rather than going out and trying to get some from some prostitute. Disgusting!!

Of all the towns in S. FL he could have chosen to come to Friday night driving all the way from Coconuk Creek, he chose Hollywood. There is a reason for that and that reason is because Hollywood is reputed to be a place where the downtown is still a seedy area with a few seasoned low end bars that are known to be trash magnets. On any given night there are people coming in and out of the many alleys in the downtown area and I really don't think these people were star gazing behind the trash bins. Hollywood has become a prime example of a fecade that is trying everything to look good on the outside but has cobwebs in all the corners and the refigerator is crawling with old, smelly rotted food. It's sad that this is happening on a seemingly weekly basis in this town however nothing will change overnight. Downtown Hollywood will NEVER be a Las Olas group magnet or an Aventura group magnet or an Emerald Hills magnet, despite what Mara believes. People from those areas might venture to downtown to have dinner and walk around once, but they're not returning so fast when they see the filth and trash and element of the regulars on the streets. One brush with one of so many blatant drunks hassling you is enough to turn anyone off, and then they tell their friends, and so on and the next time they want to try something new it's off to Ft. Lauderdale they go. The only people who frequent the downtown on a weekly basis are the locals who live in the illegal cut-up buildings and can get trashed in the company of their fellow neighbors and then have a good time in the alley. Believe me, you aren't getting the Lakes people making downtown their weekly destination. Again, sad this happened however not suprising at all. Chances are these days when you hear about a murder in S. FL it happened in Hollywood. Mara refuses to address her Chief of Police and demand that preventative policing become policy. Perhaps if the police in Hollywood were pounding the pavement and driving the alleys, not just for the one week following a murder but EVERYDAY, stopping people who clearly look drunk or suspicious hanging out where they obviously have no business being, asking for ID, scaring them away, maybe, just maybe these types would know they couldn't Fxxx around in Hollywood because crime was tough and they're prescense would not be tolerated, something like the City of Ft. Lauderdale spent years doing and really cleaned up. However, it seems like a dream because instead of getting better, it's only getting worse. You can keep building parks and condo's (if they ever finish) and making BS speeches however if you can't walk the streets NO ONE you will only get the element of those who live the streets.

I do know the guy and was very friendly with him, but lost touch a few years ago. He was always a very nice guy who comes from a very strong family. It's a crazy thing to see on the news, but hey I guess you don't always know everything about everyone.
Crazy stuff. My compassion for both families and especially for his younger brothers who look up to him, and I hope they realize how wrong he was.

If this was a black guy, there would be 80 blogs all saying what an animal and how he should be killed with a bullet to the back of his head and no trial. I've said on numerous blogs, crime is crime and the guilty should be punished regardless of race creed or color.

The ho started it.
Either way, a good outcome.
Ugly ho stops spreading disease.
Dopey guy locked up for life.

Girlfriend gets to keep all his stuff and find another guy. Although, you have to wonder what kind of girlfriend she is if her fiance has got to go out paying for sex with nasty, ugly old hookers...

Like I said before, another hollywood ho off Useless 1 in Hollyweird. Home of the Homeless Voice dump, um hotel. Yeah thats what he calls it. Everyone knows that crime, prostitution and everything else picks up during the winter and if their is a big game or sporting event in South Flor-i-dah. I agree, 1 ho off the street, 1 dopey guy in prison, 1 girlfriend with all his stuff that didnt get beaten to look for a new boyfriend.

We have lived in the Lakes for years and go bike riding once a week though not as often because it's not as safe anymore but my wife and I are constantly dumbfounded that we have gotten to recognize new bums in town and yet the police cannot. There is something terribly wrong for us to be able to say this. We even know where some of them hang out, what their style of approach is and who their frinds are because they are always out in the open, most often harrassing people when they're drunk or asking for $$$. If we know who they are how can the police not? Makes us think the police really like having the bums and drunks and hookers. We don't go downtown anymore, we stopped about 3 yrs. ago. It's filth.

If this was a White killing a Black then there would be riots in the news.
