A Sarasota County Sheriff’s deputy was arrested after he cashed fraudulent checks he stole from an elderly woman’s account – totaling $65,000 – and then tried to kill her when she confronted him about the theft. As she lay dying he stole her dog and sold it on Craigslist. Talk about adding insult to injury.
Thankfully the woman was transported to a hospital where she recovered. Deputy Frankie Bybee, 46, forced the woman to take an overdose of pills and staged the scene to look like a suicide. He is charged with attempted murder among other things.
