Boca woman found dead, husband sought

WEST BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - People in Boca Raton woke up to a shocking crime in their neighborhood early Friday morning.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies say a daughter discovered her mother dead at their home on Clear Brooke Circle in the Coral Bay subdivision of Boca Chase in Boca Raton.

But detectives are calling 49-year-old Bozena Kovacs' death "suspicious".

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Department Spokesman Eric Davis says Kovacs was found dead on the floor next to her bed in the master bedroom with a single gunshot located on her head.

Detectives are looking for Kovacs' husband, 44-year-old Robert Kovacs, and have obtained an arrest warant. They say the couple had a history of domestic violence.

Robert Kovacs was ordered to have no contact with his wife after he was arrested for domestic violence on July 30 in Broward County. Neighbors reported seeing him with her and believe he may have been living in the house.

Police located his car, a black Cadillac, in Deerfield Beach. However, they still have not found Kovacs.

"We are trying to locate him to see if, A, he's alright and B, if he can tell us anything," explained Davis.

Deputies say Bozena Kovacs lived at the house with her daughter, Brandi Braken, who is 21, and her father. Neighbors say Kovacs also had a son who lived there.

The family was renting the home. They moved in about three weeks ago.
