Recently, I read about a murder at a nursing home in Florida. Apparently, a 95-year-old man in a nursing home was killed by a trespasser. Police were told a nurse walked past the victim’s room when she noticed an unknown male sitting on top of the victim’s chest with a pillow over his face, according to police.
The nurse yelled out for another nurse to call 9-1-1 and the unknown male took off running from the facility while police were called. No word yet on how he gained entrance to the facility, but there is a notice on the door explaining that visitors must be buzzed in if they are trying to enter the premises outside of normal business hours (8 AM- 8 PM).
According to police, dispatchers received a call from a nurse at Tiffany Hall Nursing and Rehabilitation Center shortly after midnight saying “someone tried to hurt a patient.” When police arrived on scene they found an adult male dead.
Where was the supervision? How could no one hear what was going on?
When police arrived, they set up a perimeter and searched the area with a K-9 unit but police say they were unable to find the unknown male, who was only described as a white male.
