    The link on the Orlando Sentinel said that her boyfriend was "in the room" and claims to have heard her scream and then ran to see her falling. I'm calling this a boyfriend-induced homicide.

    In one of the comments to the article linked by the original poster, a woman says she's stayed at that hotel before and wouldn't let her kids near the balcony. She said she could see an accident happening like that.

    While it's horrible, I do hope it was a horrible accident and not a murder.

    These "falls" are horrible because it is tough to prove it was murder without a confession. If he did it, I hope they crack him.

    i just know what has been reported so far, BUT here in FL falls from balconies, hotels, etc happen often. Day before New years/spring break/fourth of july, etc someone gets drunk, fools around on the railing, and winds up going over. Its sad but a lot of people come to Florida to party and do stupid stuff. Either way what happened is tragic. I hope its not a murder. But people falling off balconies is pretty common here. Go figure...

    That is so true. One time my husband and I took a vacation to Florida and we were on the third floor of the hotel. It had a concrete baloney and there was a woman next door to us that climbed up on the rail and was balancing on it. She even balanced on one leg, swaying back and forth, laughing. I was scared to death that she would fall to her death. We called the security guards and by the time they got up there her friends had grabbed her and brought her inside. We saw one of her friends the next day and asked if she was okay. The guy just laughed and said "yeah, except she is nursing a big hangover."

    This woman in this case, more than likely screamed when she fell. Even if the boyfriend heard her he would not be able to save her.

    I wonder what LE found or knows that prompted the arrest? IMO, it would be hard to prove it was murder from a fall like that.

    Hi SuziQ, It had to be something screamed 'You're It' to the police inestigators there on the case.

    And it could be anything - something that didn't ji*e time-wise, or she was in the middle of something she wouldn't ha*e stopped doing. Something forensic, like signs of a struggle, or her clothing ripped or bedding out of place, drugs on scene and the BF pretty well ******ed up or hiding something - well it could be so many different things.

    I think the police in Florida get a lot of experience in sol*ing crimes and are *ery adept at it. Watch CSI Miama or Burn Notice and you will see. LOLOLOLOL


    Go ORANGE COUNTY LE And God bless the family of this gal.
