BASSVILLE PARK, Fla. - Detectives in central Florida are searching for clues about why a man shot a woman to death in the street, then turned the gun on himself.
Lake County Sheriff's Office detectives say 46-year-old Washington Rodriguez was apparently following 24-year-old Brandy Haygood before he shot her Friday morning.
Rodriguez's motive remains unclear.
She was killed outside a home where she had been staying recently in Bassville Park, about 40 minutes northwest of Orlando.
Authorities say Rodriguez shot himself with a semiautomatic handgun after killing Haygood.
