    FL - Patricia Moran, 72, & Deborah Royal, 51, murdered, Haines City, 15 Jan 2015



    http://www.wtsp.com/story/news/2015/...city/21832809/

    This all began around 5:45 p.m. Thursday, when Auburndale police and Polk County deputies got a report of four men robbing the Cash America pawn shop on Havendale Boulevard. The suspects were described as four men, three of whom were armed.

    The suspect vehicle, a GMC SUV, was later spotted heading eastbound along U.S. 17/U.S. 92 in Haines City. Haines City police pursued the vehicle, and the suspects allegedly opened fire on the officer, who was not hit... At one point, the suspects' car crashed in the Chanler Ridge subdivision, west of U.S. 27 and north of U.S. 17/92. The four men fled on foot, but one was caught by a sheriff's canine team.

    A resident told deputies to check a neighbor's house, and police then set up a perimeter with law enforcement from Haines City, Polk County and Auburndale. As they were setting up the perimeter, a vehicle then burst through the garage door, went airborne toward officers -- who fired shots at it -- before it quickly crashed. A second suspect, with gunshot wounds and canine bites, was caught...

    Hundreds of officers, including SWAT teams, scoured a Central Florida neighborhood for armed and dangerous men after a suspected robbery, high-speed chase and double homicide overnight.

    All four suspects are now in custody, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said this morning.

    The two people killed in the house invaded by one suspect were a mother and daughter, who, Judd said, were “viciously murdered” in a manner “much too graphic to describe.”

    Four suspected pawn-shop robbers are accused of killing a woman and her adult daughter in their home late Thursday after crashing an SUV into their Polk County subdivision during a gun battle with authorities.

    The victims were identified as Deborah Royal, 51, and her mother Patricia Moran, 72, both of Haines City...

    "This vehicle becomes lost. They don't know where they are. They're trying to get away from the police officers," Judd said. Officers soon received a 911 call from a neighbor who had gone to check on the victims after hearing sirens. The neighbor told officers she heard the women screaming "no" repeatedly from inside, Judd said.

    "I cannot begin to tell you the horrific crime scene inside. I cannot tell you how brutal it was," said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.

    "Terrible," commented Bill Lawson, who lives nearby. "No one should go through what those two went through. Nobody"...

    Moran was known for having an elaborate collection of Elvis memorabilia in her home. Neighbors say her blue Ford was one of her prized possessions. "She loved that thing," said Justin Friedman, a neighbor. "She almost cried when it was in the shop." Authorities had to tow the badly damaged car away from the scene following the chase.

    Over the weekend, Rachel Dominguez's raised more than $3,500 to help bury a mother and a grandmother whom police say were slain during a crime binge Thursday night...

    "You expect to be safe in your own home," she said. "All of Polk County is just devastated with how this happened."

    "Every one of these folks was a very experienced criminal. They're bad. They're really bad people," Judd said.

    So may now they will be locked up for a while?

    More than $4,000 has been raised to cover the funeral expenses of Patricia Moran, 72, and her 51-year-old daughter, Deborah Royal

    Moran and Royal were victims of a break-in that began when four suspects attempted to elude police after robbing an Auburndale pawn shop at gun point

    Michael Gordon, 34, allegedly killed the two before stealing their vehicle in an effort to elude police who had the house surrounded

    Gordon was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder, armed robbery, and attempted murder of a law enforcement officer

    How very horrible! I'm glad people are raising money for the funerals of the two victims. However, 2 funerals will cost much more than $4,000, more like $20,000. I hope a funeral home will decide to donate its services for this poor innocent victims. I wonder if the mother and daughter have other family nearby to take care of all the details.
