Two bloodied bodies were found on a beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Tuesday morning.
Police are currently investigating whether the double kill was linked to a separate incident that led officers to nearly 20 miles on the Interstate 95 on Monday. The bodies of two men with stab wounds around the age of 40 were discovered at 6:15 a.m. on Tuesday at the beach behind L’Hermitage, a condominium complex. In a separate incident on Monday, residents reported an “inadequate man” in a white Wrangler jeep parked in a neighboring wasteland. He attacked one of the locals.
When the officers arrived, the man tried to leave the police, which led to the pursuit. As a result, the driver was detained. A man later identified as a 63-year-old Daniel Dovey from Pennsylvania, was charged with two aggravated assaults and fleeing law enforcement, reports the Miami Herald. He was not charged with the killings, but authorities are investigating this, given that the wasteland is only half a mile from the place where the bodies were found. According to the police, there is no threat to the public. “The incidents occurred in close proximity to each other, and detectives are exploring the likelihood that they might be related,” said Fort Lauderdale Police Detective Ali Adamson.
