Death – Obituary

POLK COUNTY, Fla. — Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd is holding a press conference Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m. on several recent deadly crashes being investigated by the sheriff’s office, including the fiery crash in Haines City Monday that killed four people. 

Three people initially died in the two-vehicle crash Monday night on Lake Hatchineha Road, and a fourth person died overnight Tuesday from the injuries they received. 

Two other people have been hospitalized.

According to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, the crash happened just after 12 p.m. near Watkins Road, in an unincorporated part of the city.

Sheriff Grady Judd said deputies responded to reports of a possible abduction in Poinciana. The suspect reportedly fled the scene and was speeding and driving recklessly when he collided with 3 different vehicles.

“It was just someone fleeing from what was reported to us as a possible abduction, and the information still is sketchy because we’re putting it together but it was some kind of disturbance up in Poinciana community,” Judd explained.

Sheriff Grady Judd said authorities believe one of the deceased victims in the crash was that suspect.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
