FL - Tia Poklemba, 25, found dying on street, San Carlos Park, 8 Aug 2008
Did someone take a grisly trophy?
"Frank Roberts and his nephew found Poklemba sitting upright and bloodied in the middle of the road as the delivery van first approached, according to his account on news-press.com. Poklemba’s dress was pulled up around her waist, he said, and her top was pulled down.
"She had serious scrapes and bruises, Roberts said. One of her ears was missing, he told the paper, and she had a large hole in her shoulder."
Tia Poklemba was a 25-year-old, pretty blond bartender. The only thing she said before she died was that she'd been "with friends."

Police look for ‘person of interest’ in homicide
The last time Tia Poklemba was seen alive, she was with a dark-haired man about her age.
On Thursday night, the two were at the tiki bar at the Best Western Springs Resort on South Tamiami Trail, in San Carlos Park, a mere two miles from where Poklemba, 25, would be found hours later, her 100-pound body too battered to survive.
The identity of the man Poklemba was seen with is unknown, but Lee County sheriff’s deputies listed him Saturday night as a person of interest in her death.
“I wouldn’t declare him a suspect at this point,” said Tony Schall, Lee County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
“We are very interested in speaking with him."

Interesting comments at the link RiverRat posted. Two or three posters said that her boyfriend matches the description of the POI.

Maybe she was trying to say "boyfriend" instead of "with friends".Where is Jennifer Kesse? www.findjenniferkesse.com

Hopefully they catch this guy soon. If the beige/gold pick up truck was leaving the scene when the men started to help her, i would think the truck was involved. Otherwise common sense, the man would come over and help the other men. I hope LE checks out the boyfriend and finds out what he drives as well.

ok, crazy theory here. I did some research and I was wondering ... do you think maybe a dog could have bitten her arm and ear?
It definitely sounds as if she was raped.

Is there not sometimes a message to others when someone's ear is cut off in a murder??? ...Like the victim heard something she was not suppose to hear...or something???"Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance."~ Plato
