BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Boca Raton Police Department confirms to BocaNewsNow.com that Egbert Durity is now charged with Second Degree Murder in the death of his child’s mother. We first reported on Durity’s arrest Sunday evening. While the victim’s name is being kept confidential by Boca Raton Police, BocaNewsNow.com has learned that Glynda Dickerhoof lists the murder scene as her home address, and was in the midst of paternity litigation with Durity. This photo is identified by ”Wanderable.com” as showing the two of them together.
We are publishing the paternity lawsuit, below. This is the official media advisory from Boca Raton PD:
“On Saturday, December 18, 2021 at approximately 7:15 p.m., Boca Raton Police responded to a residence along Glouchester Street in reference to a welfare check. The caller requested a welfare check on her adult daughter (victim) after she received strange text messages from her number but was unable to reach her. The victim went to the above residence to pick up her child from her child’s father but had not returned. Officers contacted the child’s father who provided information on the whereabouts of the victim and child, which further raised officers’ concern.
During the investigation, the victim’s vehicle was found unattended in a parking lot near the residence. The vehicle was parked haphazardly and the victim’s keys and purse were on the front seat. A search of the area was conducted and exigency was established for officers to enter and check the residence for the victim and child. Officers found the victim deceased inside a bedroom with a wound to her chest. The child was not inside the residence but was later located safe at a relative’s house.
Boca Raton Police detectives conducted interviews and gathered evidence. During an interview with the child’s father, he admitted to shooting the mother of his child in the chest during an argument. He then moved her vehicle and texted people from her phone to buy himself time.
The child was not present at the time of the incident. As a result of the investigation, the child’s father was arrested and charged with Second Degree Murder with a Firearm.”
Egbert appeared in court Monday morning. The arrest report, courtesy of Boca Raton PD, follows:
