It was a butt-dialing blunder that led police to the man they say orchestrated the fatal shooting. Now they’re looking for his co-conspirators.
In the accidental phone call to 911, Simon is recorded telling someone else that he’s going to follow the victim home and kill him.
Simon has been charged with first-degree murder for his involvement in the killing of Walker on May 5th, although Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives don’t believe he was the one who fired the gun.READ MORE: Former US Rep. Carrie Meek Passes Away At 95
According to reports, Simon coordinated the shooting after an argument with Walker at a nearby Waffle House.
Deputies arrived at the scene at 6:40 AM and found Walker’s Buick crashed into a guard rail. After a fire was put-out, police found Walker dead of gunshot wounds.
Detectives are asking for help in identifying two other suspects. Surveillance video shows a man they believe to be involved in the murder. The suspects were driving a black 2012 Buick GS on the night of the incident.
