Arrest Made In Lauderdale Lakes Triple Murder

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – The Broward Sheriff’s Office has confirmed an arrest in connection with a triple murder in Lauderdale Lakes.

Lineten Belizaire, 20, was arrested Sunday by Miami-Dade Police.

In bond court Monday, the judge said Belizaire was charged with the murders of Octavia Barnett, 21, her roommate Natasha Plummer, 25, and Plummer’s 6-month-old son, Carlton Stringer Jr.

Their bodies were found Sunday, January 15th inside their apartment at 2750 Somerset Drive in Lauderdale Lakes.

“To have a triple homicide in our county is horrendous,” said BSO Sheriff Al Lamberti. “When they got inside the crime scene, even the veteran investigators had a tough time dealing with it.”

The only survivor of the triple murder was 11-month-old Ladinian Belizaire who is believed to be the suspect’s son. The baby is currently staying an undisclosed foster home.

Lamberti said they were led to Belizaire through a Facebook posting that Barnett posted to her account moments before the crime took place. She posted on her page that Belizaire was outside her apartment.

A second man, Tevin Montogomery, petitioned for custody of the child at a hearing last week. He claimed he was the child’s father even though his name is not on the child’s birth certificate, he did not live with Barnett or the child, nor was he making any child support payments. Montgomery was ordered to submit to a DNA paternity test to prove his relationship to the child.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office is planning a 3:30 p.m. news conference regarding Belizaire’s arrest.

    These women just love to BREED with these thugs. Then when something happens, it”s oh the poor family. Poor family my A.. Try proper up-bringing. Be a baby mama and get paid for it through welfare.

  • poorwhiteboy

    He was probably BREEDING both of them. too bad he didn” kill his own bad seed.

  • TDA Armstrong

    Godless and Heartless was this man and Judgment will come for those who go against gods will. Its important for us to make the right decisions on who we have baby’s from and getting to know people before they commit to a lunatic.. Life is full of choices Its a shame that most people have to suffer behind ignorance and neglect. This world has its priority’s out of order.. there is no guidance and no one who stands firmly behind whats right.. No religion no faith or to much religion and no god. My heart goes out to those who lost there lives and we need to pray for the murderer because his punishment will be far greater than a lethal gunshot. The wrath of an angry god is way more of a punishment then just an eye for an eye… That all I got to say…

  • Ron

    Let him know he will die and then kill him slowly. Very slow… And let this happen to all killers. Everyone must get killed. The killers must know they do not have a chance. THey must know that when they are killing someone they are killing themselves. Sorry but thats how man kind is. To many of us.
