    Lee deputies say missing man believed to be in danger

    He may be driving a silver 2015 Toyota Corolla with a Florida tag – K303BN – and deputies are also looking for three people, 18-year-old Jonathan Ruffini, 23-year-old Tyson Hunter and 14-year-old Lavaya May, who may know something about his whereabouts.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    From the link above, the mom states she hasn't heard from her 14 year old daughter since she called and said she was moving to CA. Wow, no call to the police to report her missing? She is 14!!!!

    This is all bad! These three look scary. Drugs(?). Why was a 14 yearold girl living with Lee? Is his car gone?

    Sheriff Scott has had several cases here on WS. I hope the next article I read with a statement from him, is that Diana Alvarez was found alive.

    Jonathan Ruffini, 18, and Tyson Hunter, 23, have been charged with second degree murder, grand theft of automobile, and fraudulent use of a credit card, and Lavaya May, 16, was charged with accessory after the fact of murder, grand theft of automobile, and fraudulent use of a credit card. Police originally had May listed as 14.

    The sheriff's office said the common thread in the case and in the relationships with the murdered man, Ted Lee, and the two young men... is May, also arrested Monday. She lived in the same neighborhood as Lee for years...

    Lee... was found dead and wrapped in a carpet with trauma to his body Friday night near a garbage container behind a Bradenton church, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office reported.

    Fourth Update on Ted Lee Murder 7/20/16

    The public’s interest in this high profile case is understandable given the nature of the crime. Ted Lee ‘s murder is shocking because of who was involved and their ages.

    Jonathan Ruffini (B/M; DOB 2/10/98) and Tyson Hunter (W/M; DOB 9/17/92) and Lavaya May (W/F; 2/11/00) were all apprehended in Kansas and charged with Ted Lee’s murder. Lavaya was charged as an assessor to the murder.

    Now that they have been taken into custody and awaiting extradition, more can be said as to the “why” the crime occurred.

    The common thread in the case and in the relationships with Mr. Lee and the young men, is Lavaya the 16-year-old female. She lived in the same neighborhood as Mr. Lee for years.

    As we understand it, they simply wanted to leave Florida and were headed to Colorado. They stole Mr. Lee’s vehicle and his credit card to help them flee the state.

    Knowing the general area the suspects were traveling to, and sharing this information with Kansas authorities, led to the capture of these three violent individuals. Detectives with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office traveled to Kansas to follow up on leads developed in this case. Multiple law enforcement agencies in Kansas assisted in the investigation and the successful capture of the three suspects.

    At this point they are held awaiting extradition. The extradition process will move at the speed of the courts in Kansas and we do not have a time frame at this point on their return.

    Lavaya May, one of three suspects in the death of Buckingham resident Ted Lee, was booked into Lee County jail this morning.

    The 16-year-old, originally named as an accessory to Lee's killing, now faces second degree murder charges.

    LCSO report details how young trio allegedly killed Buckingham man

    [...]

    Tyson Hunter, 23, and 18-year-old Jonathan Ruffini are now in Lee County Jail on charges of homicide, credit card fraud and vehicle theft. May was booked into Lee County Jail on a homicide charge July 23 — 9 days after the killing of 58-year-old Ted Lee.

    May told investigators that her "Uncle Ted' had been molesting her since she was 8 but had recently stopped.

    Sgt. Matt McDaniel, a sheriff's spokesman, said that Lee had never been arrested in Lee County.

    "There is nothing to support the allegations," he wrote in an email.

    [...]

    Grant Davis, step-grandfather to May, said Lee in the past was accused of sexually molesting (May), according to the warrant.

    Davis lives in the neighborhood and saw May holding the door of Lee's home open as two men loaded a body into Lee's car.

    As for what led to that ... "I'm going to tell you what happened," Ruffini told investigators before explaining all.
