Here’s a screenshot of the Florida Obituaries page, showing the date (4/3/2018) and time (8:06 AM)when I took the screenshot (click image to enlarge):

Notice the box on the webpage and in the screenshot that allows you to search for a particular name?

I did just that, and conducted a search, using the date range of “last 90 days,” for each of the 17 individuals who allegedly was shot to death on February 14, 2018, in Parkland, Florida. In each case, I got the same result:

No results were found using your search criteria, so we increased the date range to ‘2000 to present’ and removed the city.

I repeated the search for all 17 names, this time changing the date range from “last 90 days” to “Date of Death: All”. In each case, I got the same result:

No results were found using your search criteria

There is a Martin Guillermo Duque who died in Miami, Florida, but he was 76 years old and the date of death was July 30, 2013.

  1. I’ve recently lost a few friends
    One a year ago
    And one 4 months ago
    They are listed … so this only leads me to one conclusion

    We’re being LIED to….. again
    Getting sick of this shit yet people ?

    1. LOL… I used to check FotM all the time, DL, but drifted away from it until recently. I aced another site from my regular list, so it’s the last one I check now. I’ve found some top-notch articles there in the past. 🙂

    2. And btw, you beat me to NewVegasBadger on that other article. I saw his comment earlier and was going to say something when I got to that article (I do them in the order that they’re up on the site, now that I can’t get the articles in my corrupted e-mail anymore), but you you’ve already schooled him.

  2. I hate to spoil the fun (they’re going to hate me for this), but this means nothing.

    These obituaries are paid advertisements, and just because someone isn’t listed there, doesn’t mean they didn’t die.

    Do you mean to tell me that with a population of approximately 24,000, only 20 people died in a span of 8 months? (July 28th, 2017 to March 7th 2018) I think a LOT of people died in Parkland Fla. in that time that aren’t listed here.

    The real question to ask is “why does this Dr. Eowyn character continually provide questionable, and misleading ‘evidence’ regarding this event?”

  3. I just searched the site for my dad’s obit – which is still available online – from almost 18 months ago. Tributes.com does NOT have it, but I know for a fact my father passed away. This NOT a credible source!!!!
