BOYNTON BEACH, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Boynton Beach resident Tony Edwards, an 11-time convicted felon, is now facing two murder charges after federal agents nabbed him in Gainesville. He is being extradited to Palm Beach County for the early August murders.

This is the official advisory from Boynton Beach Police. We are also publishing the arrest report filed by police.

From Boynton Beach Police:

“An 11-time convicted felon wanted for the murders of two Boynton Beach men last month has been taken into custody. Tony Tyrone Edwards Jr. was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force on Wednesday in Gainesville, Florida. He is pending extradition to Palm Beach County, where he will face charges of two counts of first degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Edwards was identified by witnesses as the person who shot two men in the early hours of Aug. 7 in the 400 block of Northwest 11th Avenue.

“We thank the U.S. Marshals for their relentless search for the man responsible for these heinous acts,” Boynton Beach Police Chief Michael G. Gregory said. “We hope his arrest brings a semblance of peace to the families of the men whose lives were so senselessly cut short.”
