St Lucie Sheriff’s Office Continues to Investigate Three Deaths

St Lucie County, Fla- Sheriff Ken Mascara shared that detectives continue to investigate three dead bodies found within a mile of each other on Wednesday, February 28 in the unincorporated area of Port St. Lucie.

The Sheriff said that the timeline of the three incidents have become defined. He believes the 3 incidents are related.

“The driver of the car was transported by EMS to a local hospital where they were pronounced deceased,” Mascara said.

According to the Sheriff, at 9:58 a.m. a landlord entered their rental home at 606 Ash Avenue. He went to check the progress of tenants who were vacating the property. The landlord then noticed a foul smell and something wrapped in carpet inside the garage. The landlord immediately called 9-1-1 and deputies confirmed the item to be a dead body.

According to the Sheriff detectives were led to a home at 6816 Shelley Terrace in the Oleander Pines neighborhood.

“After knocking on the door and not receiving an answer, detectives inspected the inside of the home through a window and found a male inside on the floor.”Mascara said.

According to the Sheriff, entry to the home was made and detective found the man to be deceased.

“Search warrants were executed last night on the two homes and car and additional search warrants are being written to further the investigation,” Mascara said. “The autopsies of all three bodies are also being conducted today to determine the manner and time of death.”

According to the Sheriff, the names of the victims will not be released until proper next of kin notification can be made.
