first_imgFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – BSO Detectives are trying to determine whether a man who led officers on a chase along Interstate 95 is also responsible for a double homicide in Fort Lauderdale.A few hours after detectives found the two stabbed to death in Lauderdale Beach, Michael Jones told police officers he found an intruder nearby with “crazy in his eyes” who threatened to kill him.Jones said the man was camping on his property and told police he was driving a white Jeep Wrangler with a Pennsylvania tag.Jones said when he asked the man to leave he threw him to the ground then smashed his Jeep into a golf cart driven by Jones’ business partner.“He continued in reverse and he backed up, full-speed, into my Porsche Turbo S and destroyed the entire side of it,” Jones said.Officers chased the intruder northbound on I-95 until a Florida Highway Patrol trooper’s maneuver caused him to crash.“The incidents occurred within close proximity and timeframe to one another and as result detectives are looking into the possibility that the two incidents may be related,” said Detective Ali Adamson, a spokeswoman for the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.Officers responded to the double murder shortly after 6:00 a.m. at 3054 North Ocean Blvd where two people were found on the beach stabbed to death.Then they were dispatched to the aggravated battery on Jones about three hours later at 2613 Center Ave.Jones said officers told him the man was armed with two hunting knives.Adamson is asking anyone with information about the crime scenes to call detectives at 954-828-5534 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.last_img
