Orlando, Florida: David “Daniel” Sigers and James Michael “Bo” Thomas were discovered dead with numerous gunshot wounds in a home off Sawtooth Road on August 1, according to deputies from the Baker County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Scotty Rhoden claimed that it had been so long since a homicide occurred in Baker County, Florida, that he is unable to recall it. On August 3, Rhoden stated at a press conference, “Autopsies were carried out…. These two victims were brutally killed, and it’s possible that they were targets. Make no mistake: This was a murder carried out in the manner of an execution.
People in this thinly populated county of around 30,000 are terrified by the horrifying facts of the incident because so much about the case is still a mystery, with no known suspects and no known reason. Investigators assumed that the shooting occurred during the weekend. According to the sheriff’s office, two adult males were discovered dead from what appeared to be gunshot wounds when deputies entered the home, the Miami Herald reports.
A $5,000 reward is being offered by deputies to anyone with information about the murder of two men in Macclenny. Together with the sheriff’s office, the Florida Sheriffs’ Association’s Criminal Apprehension Assistance Program (CAAP) is looking into the double homicide. How many times the guys were shot, the reason detectives think they were targeted, and the reason the crime scene is called “brutal” are some of the information that was withheld. Rhoden added that there is no proof linking the killings to drug use. According to authorities, Thomas only had “some minor misdemeanour convictions” on his record, while Sigers had no criminal background.
If you noticed any suspicious or unusual activities over the weekend, please let the police know. Nothing is too small, according to Rhoden. According to an obituary, it took place at Sigers’ home, where he led “a calm, secluded existence.” According to his obituary, he “was a longtime resident of Baker County,” served in the US Army, and played nose guard for the Baker High Wildcats football team.
According to his obituary, Thomas also attended Baker High and grew up in Macclenny. He had four children and ran Bo Thomas Construction LLC. Both men were skilled musicians and hunters, with Thomas playing in the Modern Day Troubadours and Whiskey Moon String Band, according to his obituary. According to the sheriff’s office, there is no proof that residents in the sparsely populated area are under “imminent threat.” That hasn’t, however, allayed worries or put an end to rumours about the reason. Many folks have inquiries that are not currently being addressed.
“Why do you suppose they were chosen as targets? How do you know they won’t target someone else in the same place if they were targeted? Inquiry posted on the sheriff’s office Facebook page by Angie Vlacos Sams. “Clearly, multiple people participated in this. Micah Morrison stated, “This had to be two or more. “Someone has information! People converse,” said Eric Howard. Michelle Dawn Lowe Baughman advised on her Facebook page to “say your prayers, lock all doors, and keep your weapon close by.”
