Overnight Crash in Neighborhood Kills Motorcyclist

(January 25, 2015)-  Earlier this morning, Cape Coral Police responded to a single-vehicle fatality crash in the 1100 block of SE 16th St.  Sometime during the overnight hours, a motorcyclist left the roadway, striking a tree in front of a residence.  The crash was discovered some hours later by the homeowner, who called Police.

Cape Coral Police Department Patrol, Major Crash Investigator, Victim Advocate, and Forensics personnel responded.  The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

The preliminary synopsis of the Major Crash Investigator is below:

DATE: January 25, 2015
TIME: 8:36 a.m. 
LOCATION: 1000 Block of Southeast 16th Street
CR#: 15-001442
ASSIGNED MCI: Corporal Nickolas J. Slover #0626

VEHICLE 1: 2008 Suzuki GSX 650F Motorcycle.
DRIVER 1:  Scott W. Ogden, W/M, 42, of Cape Coral, Florida.

DRIVER 1 INJURIES: Ogden was pronounced deceased on scene.

SYNOPSIS:  Vehicle # 1 was west bound on SE 16th Street at a high rate of speed.  In the 1000 block, driver of Vehicle # 1 attempted to slow down and brake leaving skid marks. The driver of Vehicle # 1 was unable to stop and left the roadway, entering into the property of 1002 SE 16th Street.  Vehicle # 1 and driver slid on its/his side through the property and struck a tree in the front yard.  The driver came to final rest in front of the residence and the motorcycle traveled further west, coming to final rest on the side of the residence. 

There are no independent witnesses to the crash.  The homeowner and neighbor both remember hearing a loud noise in the middle of the night but have conflicting times.   The owner of the residence came out this morning to find Vehicle # 1 and the driver at final rest. After inspecting the motorcycle, it does not appear any other vehicle made contact with this vehicle, and the accident appears to be a single-vehicle traffic crash.

Due to the fatality, MCI Corporal Nickolas Slover, Forensic Specialist Lisa Lansky and VA Marisol Pena responded.  Alcohol/drugs are pending autopsy results.  The next-of-kin has been notified. This case is pending further investigation at this time.

Cape Coral Police Detectives Make Arrest in January 7th Home Invasion

(January 22, 2015)-  Cape Coral Police Detectives have arrested 16 year-old Keenan Jermaine Stanley on charges of Home Invasion Robbery, Aggravated Assault, and Grand Theft stemming from a January 7th home invasion in SE Cape Coral.

On January 7, Cape Coral Police responded to 423 SE 8th St. in reference to a home invasion.  The victim (a juvenile) told Officers and Detectives that he was lying in bed when 3 black males entered his bedroom, armed with baseball bats, and stole numerous pairs of sneakers, an iPhone 5, and an Xbox 360. One suspect told the victim that he had a gun in his pocket and not to move.

The suspects loaded the items into bags and exited the residence through the rear slider. The victim ran after them and saw the three black males leave in a car which was parked on SE 7th Street.

Witnesses in the neighborhood saw the suspects running from the house.  All three black males were described as approximately 5'09", 150 lbs and around 16 years of age. The first black male was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with his face exposed. The second black male was also wearing a hooded sweatshirt but had a red bandana covering his face from the nose down.  The third black male was lighter skinned with a blonde afro.  Detectives and Forensics personnel responded to the scene.

A few days later, both the victim and a neighborhood witness positively identified Stanley as one of the three suspects from a photo line-up.

Officers took Keenan into custody at his home yesterday afternoon.  At the time of his arrest, Stanley was wearing a black pair of sneakers which matched the description of a pair of sneakers that were stolen from the victim.  

The investigation is ongoing.  Additional charges/arrests are pending.
