Murder suspects confess to beating man found dead in Davie canal


Two 19-year-old men charged in the slaying of a retired school principal whose body was found floating in a canal with a plastic bag tied over his head confessed to beating the man before dumping him into the water, police said.

David Weintraub, of Tamarac, and Andarly Desir, of Lauderhill, were arrested and charged with premeditated murder on Friday, a day after the body of William Norman was pulled from a canal in the 1400 block of Southwest 121st Avenue.

Norman, 76, lived in Tampa and owned a house in Tamarac that Weintraub rented.............

The motive, said Davie Police Capt. Dale Engle: "Money. They planned on using his cards, not robbing him. It's all about money."............

The Rev. Todd Goewey, who ministered at the Spirit of Life Metropolitan Community Church in New Port Richey when Norman served on the board of directors there about 10 years ago, said Norman was a high school principal in Baltimore before moving to Tampa about 12 years ago.

He was divorced and the father of two sons, Goewey said.

"He was just a nice, sweet guy, very bright and intuitive," said Goewey, now of Pittsburgh. "He was the one person you could go to when you needed someone to talk to."..............
