Officers find 2 men stabbed to death in Lauderdale Beach
Michael Jones told
police officers that a man who was camping on his property
in a white Jeep Wrangler attacked him.
Jones said when he told the man, later identified as Dovi to get off his property, Dovi threw him to the ground before using the Jeep to smash into a golf cart being used by Jones’ business partner, then backed up into Jones’ Porsche.
Dovi then led police on a chase north on I-95 until a Florida Highway Patrol trooper’s maneuver caused him to crash near Hillsboro Boulevard.
Detectives said that since the incidents occurred within close proximity of each other, about five minutes from the spot of where the bodies were found, and within a close time frame, they are looking into the possibility that the murders and the assault may be related.
Dovi was arrested on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault and fleeing and eluding. He remains in the Broward County Jail.
