Florida Man Kills Roommate Who Was Moving Out To Live With Her Boyfriend

Randy Herman, a 24-year-old man from Florida, has been charged with first-degree murder after stabbing his roommate to death.

Herman is accused of stabbing his female roommate, Brook Preston, to death when she hugged him to say goodbye and tell him she was moving to Pennsylvania to live with her boyfriend.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Herman allegedly used a hunting knife to stab Preston, 21, in the abdomen, back, and throat.

According to police, Preston had come to the house Herman and she shared to give him a goodbye present. She then told Herman she was moving back to Pennsylvania to begin a career in journalism.

Via Palm Beach Post:

On Sunday morning, Preston went to the home at 813 Sarazen Driveto say goodbye to Herman, the report said. Herman, who is also from Pennsylvania, was hugged by Preston then gave her a memorial T-shirt commemorating a mutual friend who had died, the report said.

That’s when Herman allegedly stabbed Preston with a hunting knife, the report said. Preston sustained a dozen stab wounds to her back as well as others to her throat and abdomen. The report notes the woman also suffered defensive cuts to her left hand.

“Herman told me that all he could remember after giving Preston the T-shirt was blood,” a PBSO detective wrote in the arrest report.

After the murder, Herman drove Preston’s vehicle to Haverhill Park, which is about a half-mile away from the home. He then dialed 911:

“Someone’s been murdered,” Herman told the dispatcher. “I’m at Haverhill Park. Just send the police. It was me. I’m sorry.”

Herman is being held without bond at the Palm Beach County Jail.
