Naples Police Department identity victim, person of interest in homicide

Published: Updated:

There is a death investigation at a Naples home. Authorities were on the scene for an unusually long period of time, which made neighbors nervous about they found.

Police said someone who knew the victim, Francis K. Axley, 78, called and asked to check on her. When police arrived, they found her dead inside.

Police quickly obtained a search warrant. Authorities have determined the death was a homicide. They have identified a person of interest, but authorities believe he or she is no longer in the Southwest Florida area.

Neighbors said they are shocked.

“It’s very very quiet so whatever went down tonight really doesn’t make sense,” Kenneth Lubas said.

“Hope no good person got lost,” Brian Lubas said. “But yeah, it’s bad.”
