Community members are worried about their safety after a Miami man was accused of committing murder at a local North Naples shopping plaza.

Brandon Jensen, 39 is accused of killing a man in North Naples. He was scheduled to appear in court Friday but refused. Jail council attempted to arrange bond for Jensen, but the judge managing the case denied the the request.

Collier County Sheriff’s Office arrested Jensen, Thursday for the death of a victim in North Naples, whose identity continues to be investigated by detectives. He faces a charge of second-degree murder.

CCSO responded to a call at 3 a.m. about a body in the parking lot of the Carillon Shopping Plaza. The plaza is on the 5000 block of Airport-Pulling Road North.

People who work and shop there said the victim lived in an RV here for about a month.

“A lot of times when we go by, we see he had a little table there with a grill, so you know he was living there for a while,” said Thaddeus Bukowski, a shopper. “We thought he was working at the construction company.”
