Rockledge Man Killed In Orange County Crash


ORLANDO, Florida - A 21-year-old Brevard County man died as a result of injuries he sustained in a crash that occurred on the westbound lanes of State Road 528 (Beachline Expressway) Wednesday morning near mile marker 20 and International Corporate Park Boulevard.


According to FHP, Christian Lake of Rockledge, Florida was driving a 2005 Isuzu truck westbound on State Road 528 in the right lane at 11:50 a.m. on July 19, 2017.

Meanwhile, 42-year-old Miguel Lopez Febus of Kissimmee, Florida was driving a 2005 semi tractor trailer in the same lane ahead of the Isuzu.

The semi driver reduced speed for stopped traffic. For an unknown reason, the Isuzu driver failed to slow down and the front of the Isuzu struck the rear of the semi.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash and FHP determined that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.

Invest 96L No Longer Expected To Form Into Tropical Cyclone


UPDATE: According to the National Hurricane Center, Invest 96L is no longer expected to form into a tropical cyclone.

MIAMI, Florida - NOAA's National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida issued a Tropical Weather Outlook at 2 a.m. on Wednesday, July 19, 2017, due the presence of a tropical wave that could become Tropical Storm Emily and impact the U.S. east coast.



The system, named Invest 96L, is currently moving westward over the central tropical Atlantic.


The tropical wave, accompanied by a well-defined low pressure system, is located over 1100 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.  

The National Hurricane Center forecasts that some gradual development of this system is possible over the next two days while it moves toward the west-northwest or northwest at 10 to 15 mph. 

After that time, environmental conditions are forecast to become unfavorable for development.

Invest 96L has a 30% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone by Friday.

Will Invest 96L Become A Possible Tropical Storm Emily In Florida?

Invest 96l Spaghetti Models

Spaghetti models are in general agreement that the Invest 96L's projected path will move in a northwesterly direction towards the Bahamas through Wednesday. However, it is too early for the computer models to make a forecast as to where Invest 96L would make landfall along the Florida east coast, if at all.

Most intensity computer models have Emily reaching tropical storm strength by Friday but degenerating into a remnant low by Wednesday.

NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center forecasts that the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through November 30, will have above-normal activity.

Melbourne Rare Coin Dealer Arrested


MELBOURNE, Florida – John Wenzel Kane, a 63-year-old coin dealer who operates Coins and Curiosities in downtown Melbourne, was arrested by the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Economic Crimes Task Force and charged with Racketeering, Scheming to Defraud over $50,000.00, Communications Fraud over $50,000.00, Depositing a check with the intent to Defraud (12 counts), Grand Theft over $300.00 (14 counts), Grand Theft of a person over 65 (2 counts)m and Worthless Checks (2 counts).


Kane was transported to the Brevard County Jail Complex on a $112,000 Bond.

The investigation was initiated in 2016 after the Melbourne Police Department was contacted by victims who alleged that they had been defrauded out of money and/or collectible coins by Mr. Kane. The investigation was later forwarded to the Economic Crimes Task Force in early 2017.

Sheriff's investigators say that Mr. Kane was defrauding the victims in two ways:

Victims would order either gold or silver coins as an investment opportunity from Mr. Kane through his business. Mr. Kane would collect the full amount for the coin order, up front from the victim and then fail to deliver the coins.

The second type of scheme reported by the victims, involved victims giving Mr. Kane gold and silver coin collections to sell for them on consignment. Mr. Kane would resell the collection and not provide payment or return the collection to the victims.

Investigators say that some victims did receive partial payment from Mr. Kane after many months and due to threats of legal action.

The Sheriff's Office determined that Mr. Kane was using new victim’s monies to provide these partial payments to previous victims as well as using the money for personal financial purposes.
