Circumstances of Discovery

The victim was located at 600 North 184 Avenue, in Pembroke Pines, Florida on January 8, 1984. Someone had shoved a hankerchief down the victim's throat, wrapped his head in duct tape, tied his hands and shot him at least three times before setting the body on fire.

The man's body was found near where investigators found the body of a 19-year-old Kentucky woman just a day earlier. That woman was identified as Tammy Gale Crider. She, too, had been shot to death. Her death was linked to members of the Outlaws motorcycle gang, but no one was officially charged in her death.
