( 4UMF NEWS ) Cops Kill Naked Woman:
Rocky Allen Howard of the Hernando County‘s Sheriff Office and William Mechler of the Tampa Police Department were both at a party in Spring Hill, Fla. when the unidentified woman showed up behaving strangely.
“She was just acting irrational,” Hernando County Sheriff Al Neinhuis told MyFoxTampa Bay. “It was obvious being naked she was not in her right mind.”
The nude woman eventually left the scene and a partygoer called the police. But she returned before authorities arrived.
“She came back with a weapon and confronted both the Tampa police officer and my sheriff’s office detective,” Neinhuis told MyFoxTampaBay. “She came with a weapon and I would surmise that they felt their life was in danger.”
The woman died at the scene.
The nature of the confrontation remains unclear. Authorities have also declined to identify what weapon the woman was carrying.
Both Howard and Mechler, who have served for six and four years respectively, have been placed on paid administrative leave while the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigates the incident.
