LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in central Florida are asking for the public's help in finding a man suspected in a triple homicide.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd says 27-year-old David E. Smith is considered to be armed and dangerous. He is a suspect in the deaths of three people whose bodies were found inside a house in south Lakeland late Monday.
Judd says a 14-year-old girl arrived home Monday from a weekend at an ROTC event and found her mother's body. She told her ROTC Sergeant Major, who alerted authorities.
Deputies found two male victims in the home. All were fatally shot.
Judd says they were likely shot after 7 a.m. on Saturday. He says Smith calls himself "Prince David" and is delusional.
The sheriff urges anyone with information to call 363-298-6200.
