Person of interest ID'd in school deaths

Posted:

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX)--West Palm Beach Police want to question Javier E. Burgos in connection with a double homicide at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts.

Police identified the victims as custodians Ted Orama and Christopher Marshall. They say both were shot.

Police were called to the scene just before 6:30 Wednesday morning after employees found the bodies.

Police say they want to speak with Burgos to see if he has any knowledge of the homicide. They are not naming him a suspect, but a person of interest. He is also a custodian.

They say he was supposed to be on the school grounds at the time of the shooting.

Investigators spent Wednesday searching the suburban West Palm Beach home of Burgos who is 53-years-old, 5' 4" tall, weighs 180 pounds and has brown hair and eyes. His last known address was in the 2800 block of Crosley Drive in Greenacres.

The property manager where Burgos lives said he has not seen the tenant in days.

"Shocking it really is. This is a senior citizen community, we don't like to have any problems here," said Tony Mattera who manages Crosley Villas.

Mattera said Burgos was nice and always paid his rent on time. He said he never got the impression that Burgos was aggressive or violent.

Police think Burgos is driving a 4-door silver or aluminum-colored 2010 Toyota, license tag 284 PRH.

"I would consider him, somewhat of a threat. He has been known to have firearms in his possession in the past," West Palm Beach Police spokesman Capt. David Bernhardt said.

If you have any information, you are urged to call West Palm Beach police or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458 TIPS.
