They haven't figured out how the guy died and you're making ridiculous proclamations that Weston "isn't safe?" Even if someone IS murdered, we don't know the circumstances. Random act of violence? Domestic? Guy getting involved in shadiness? We don't know. For example, husband killing his wife, for example, does not impact the "safety" of any community. Last year in both Broward and Palm Beach there was a reduction of seemingly "random" homocides, but an uptick in domestic.

Weston is safer than most places in the United States. Fort Lauderdale itself actually stacks up very well against other US cities.

Weston is very safe .... I believe the last murder there was nearly ten years ago ... we had just moved there ... a Danish steroid body builder guy murdered his wife a lovely teacher from Puerto Rico after a day at the Broward Mall .. the guy eventually got off on a technicality ... it is a city of nearly 80,0000 people last I heard ... very safe ...also we do not know the details here . We had a double suicide in Parkland several months ago .. does not mean everyone is in danger of killing themselves !!!

This is not the Miami board. People in this forum are not as negative or irrational.

Turns out the guy was a burglar from Hollywood who apparently drowned while trying to leave the scene of a robbery ... I am sure his family will now say he was a good boy and sang in the church choir , etc , etc .

I love a happy ending.

Dude should have invested in swimming lessons.

True about family, they will probably try to sue Weston BSO + Weston Hills + City of Weston and everyone else for causing him to run into the canal. I wish an alligator had gotten rid of the body.
