WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says it is following up on two scenes related to murder of Kimberly Lindsey.
One is in Miami, where the prime suspect in the case, Lindsey's ex-husband Albert Lambert, overdosed. The other is in Hendry County, where Lindsey's body was discovered. "Obviously with the search warrant that's in Miami, we're going to be down there. We'll be back there in the Glades out there at the crime scene. And it's really, it's just follow up. Wrapping up loose ends," said Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw.
Sheriff Bradshaw says there is no doubt in his mind that Lambert killed Lindsey. "We want to know if there was a suicide note, we want to know what the sister or the boyfriend knew about the situation down there."
The sheriff added, "And you know, the real shame here is you got three kids now that have lost their mother and that have lost their father. So they are orphans. And that's the real shame of what happens in these instances where domestic things go bad."
A trust fund has been set up for Lindsey's three daughters. Anyone who wants to contribute can send a check or money order to: Daughters of Kimberly Lindsey Trust to Mitchell Kitroser PA, 8895 N Military Trail, Suite C-201, Palm Beach Gardens 33410 or on line, using PayPal, at http://www.daughtersofkimtrust.com/
Students are in class at Bak Middle School, where Kimberly Lindsey worked as a school nurse. Educators have been working to sensitively address the issues of her death with students. The school plans to name the nurse's office after Lindsey.
