According to police, the attempted burglary ended fatally after the window of the Florida home through which the intruder tried to break in fell sharply on his neck – killing the man
A strange incident occurred Saturday when 32-year-old Jonathan Hernandez allegedly tried to break into a home in Lehigh Acres, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said. “As Hernandez was making his way through the window, it suddenly closed, pinning him down,” Lt. Russell Park, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said Monday.
By the time authorities arrived, Park said, Hernandez – who had already been arrested in 2014 for murder and was also arrested for theft and marijuana possession – was already dead. He gave no details.
Meanwhile, those close to Hernandez were convinced that police hadn’t told the whole story. “As soon as I heard about what happened, I thought, ‘This can’t be right. It couldn’t have happened that way,” Hernandez’s fiancée Patricia Duarte told NBC2 News. “When I first met him, I thought, ‘Oh, he’s just some El Chapo,’ and he turned out to be nothing like that.
He was the sweetest guy in the world with a huge heart.” Duarte added that she would continue to demand that the police “thoroughly investigate” what happened. One of Hernandez’s friends, Tyson Lane, also stood up for him, saying he “wasn’t a thief or a robber.”
“He’s not a bad guy. – said Lane – If he had a roof over his head and you didn’t, he’d shelter you, bring you into his home. That’s what he did for a lot of people, including me.”
