Man wanted for woman’s Pompano Beach murder dies after Miami shooting, deputies say
Shortly after Local 10 News aired a story about the anguish that a 20-year-old murder victim’s family is feeling, deputies reported on Tuesday evening the case was closed.
Broward Sheriff’s Office identified a suspect in last year’s fatal shooting of Alaysia Hart in Pompano Beach, but he died in Miami before he could face justice.
Alaysia’s grandmother Zoraida Rosado said she has been dealing with uncertainty since Hart was killed on Feb. 21, 2021, at the Exxon gas station, at 220 S. Dixie Hwy.
“I have cried every day for 16 months. I wake up. I see her pictures,” Rosado said adding, “Calls and calls and calls, and they never return the phone call. There’s no justice; there’s no closure.”
After hearing Rosado’s questions about the case, Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for BSO, said the case had been closed months ago.
There was a warrant for Anthony Eason’s arrest in the case. The Miami Police Department later reported Eason was shot on July 4, 2021, just west of Overtown and he died at Jackson Memorial Hospital on July 16 of complications with gunshot wounds.
Records show that had Eason survived, he would have faced charges of manslaughter, attempted manslaughter, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
