No. 1 - Police are investigating two deadly incidents - the first in Miami Beach, where an elderly man was found dead inside his apartment.

The boat’s owner, Joel Jimenez, told reporters that video captured a total of five people in front of his home off E. 60th Street around 1 a.m. Thursday – with Jimenez saying a total of five men took the 31 foot fountain boat valued at over $90,000.
