Brandon Goode and Alexandria Hollinghurst have been identified as the teenagers who allegedly killed police officer Robert German near Orlando, Florida over the weekend before committing suicide.
Hollinghurst, 17, had recently moved in with Goode, 18, after her parents objected to his “druggie” lifestyle.
Goode had previously threatened his mother with an ax when he was 16, according to police records obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. When his mother walked into the house, Goode pinned her between a table and a wall and demanded that she accept his father’s divorce settlement with the ax resting on his shoulder.
He was also arrested on a felony assault charge in October 2012.
Both Goode and Hollinghurst were arrested on drug and alcohol charges after a traffic stop. Goode told a police officer that he and Hollinghurst smoked marijuana in his car beause they were living with his mother and didn’t want her to know about it.
Goode had just entered a pretrial drug program to attempt to resolve the case last week.
The pair, who left suicide notes, are officially considered suspects, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said on Monday.
The situation took place on Saturday.
German, 31, was a police officer with the Windermere police force for five years.
His department says visitation is scheduled for Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Northland Church in Longwood. Graveside services and burial will take place Thursday at 10 a.m. at Oaklawn Cemetery in Sanford. Services are open to the public.
Windermere is in mourning. I know I speak for all of our residents, all of our staff. All of our elected officials,” Windermere Mayor Gary Bruhn told WFTV. “We take great pride in our police department and Windermere’s heart is broken.”
Many residents dropped flowers off at the police department and expressed their grief.
There’s a real hole in our hearts right now. Our hearts go out to the family and anything we can do to comfort them, we will be here,” Bruhn said.
