BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Sources with knowledge of the murder-suicide being kept secret by the Boca Raton Police Department revealed to BocaNewsNow.com that the killer had such hatred towards another family member that he didn’t just shoot her in an organ that would bring quick death. He maimed her. We are not identifying the body part targeted by the shooter at this time.

The Boca Raton Police Department, now for a fifth day, refuses to identify the deceased suspect in Sunday’s murder-suicide at 5500 NW Third Terrace. Boca Raton Police claim that revealing the suspect’s identity would reveal the identify of the victim. Police claim that violates ”Marsy’s Law.” It’s a chilling interpretation that sets a precedent for the Boca Raton Police Department to hide the name of any suspect if the suspect knows their victim. The City of Boca Raton, using this precedent, could forever shield the identity of a mass shooting suspect if that suspect kills an acquaintance. No other municipality takes this approach.

“Your assertion that Boca Raton is (keeping) information private is contrary to our efforts and dedication to provide timely, accurate, and accessible information to the public,” wrote spokesperson Illeana Olmstead to BocaNewsNow.com, while again refusing to release information about the suspect, refusing to release a list of police supervisors dispatched to the scene, refusing to make the City Attorney available for an interview, and refusing to answer specific questions about Boca Raton’s continued blocking of public information.

Sources with knowledge of the investigation and frustrated with the information blackout tell BocaNewsNow.com that the investigation may be focused on an extended family member who once lived in the house and currently works as a traveling nurse.

Public records reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com identify New York resident Wayne Pfeister as both a traveling nurse and someone who once listed the 5500 NW Third Terrace address as his home. A Norfolk-area newspaper reported in 2010 that Pfeister was arrested and charged with armed robbery of a Wachovia Bank. BocaNewsNow.com has been unable to find the disposition of that case. Several telephone calls and emails to Pfeister, and his immediate family members, have not been returned over the past two days. We want to ask him what insight he has, if any, into Sunday’s shooting and actions by officers. BocaNewsNow.com has no first hand knowledge that he was present. We ask Wayne to call us at 561-576-NEWS.

One person was killed by the unnamed and now deceased gunman and several were injured — all related — in the Sunday afternoon incident.
