In its coverage of the brutal murders of four people in Florida, including an unborn child, NBC News didn’t point out that the teenage suspect is an illegal immigrant until the final paragraph of its story on the gruesome killings east of Fort Myers. You have to read all the way to the end of the 8-paragraph report before you’re told that the “teenager from Belize,” identified as Brian Omar Hyde, illegally crossed the Texas border about seven months ago.
Hyde reportedly made his way to Florida, where he apparently lived with or near the people he’s now charged with slaughtering. One of the victims was said to have been a relative of the 19-year-old who allegedly beat his victims to death. Another one of the dead was a pregnant 17-year-old girl.
WINK News reports that a spokesman for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office described the shocking murder scene:
“This was an extremely violent scene, even for us,” said Lt. Matt Sands with the sheriff’s office. “This scene was unimaginable, what happened.”
Miraculously, a one-year-old toddler was found alive inside a bedroom of the home where the murders occurred.
Investigators say Hyde was captured in a traffic stop. He was reportedly covered in blood.
