Masked Men Allegedly Stab Man To Death In Florida Keys

Deputies in the Florida Keys are searching for two masked men who allegedly stabbed a man to death and cut a woman’s neck with a knife, according to a press release.

The incident happened in a house behind a CVS Pharmacy after 8 p.m., the release said. Deputies were led to the location by a source in the pharmacy’s parking lot who heard about a nearby stabbing.

When Deputy Jenna Moeller arrived at the home on Stock Island, she saw a man on a downstairs landing who appeared to be unresponsive. Moeller then heard yells for help coming from the second floor.

After going upstairs, Moeller found a woman bleeding from her neck. The woman said she lived at the home and was robbed by two men wearing masks. One suspect was described as large and heavy set, while the other was described as short and thin.

The man on the downstairs landing was a neighbor, the woman said. He apparently got stabbed multiple times after trying to help the woman.

The man and the woman were transported to the hospital. The woman was treated for the neck injury and released, but the man was pronounced dead. Deputies have not yet released his name.

Two other men were believed to be on the scene at the time of the incident, but sustained minor injuries. They were not transported to the hospital. 

Officers are asking anyone with information to contact the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Anyone who wants to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys at 1-800-346-TIPS.
