FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have released surveillance video footage that showed a man, they said, is suspected of fatally stabbing a man in Fort Lauderdale.
The footage released on Friday showed a man wearing a black and white hat entering a convenience store.
According to Fort Lauderdale Police, at around 4 p.m. on June 1, the person in the video stabbed 39-year-old David Morgan along the 700 block of Northwest 22nd Road and took off running. Those who live and work in the area said the victim ran down the street before he collapsed.
Morgan was taken to Broward Health Medical Center, but he later died from his injuries.
Now his family is asking for the public’s help in catching the killer.
“I’m living in a surreal world,” said Morgan’s sister, Dwan Blount. “It’s like, moments I think that I’m dreaming and then I have to face reality that my brother really isn’t here.”
“Somebody knows him,” said Morgan’s mother. “Somebody knows something, and I’d appreciate it very much if ya’ll get him off the streets. I want to see him pay for what he did to my child.”
Family members said Morgan leaves behind a 3-year-old son. He had worked as a handyman and was a talented artist.
“He was all around just a good individual,” said Blount. “He didn’t deserve this. My brother may not have made all the best decisions in his life, but he never did anything to anyone.”
Police hope by releasing the video, the public will recognize the man allegedly responsible for Morgan’s death.
