11 Foot Alligator Killed 22 Year Old Matthew Riggins, Accused Burglar Hiding in Pond At the Wrong Time

GATOR JUSTICE: JUST SAY KARMA, BABY …

An 11 foot long alligator in Brevard County, Florida turned out to be judge, jury and executioner of 22 year old Matthew Riggins of Palm Bay, who is an accused burglar. Riggins was reported missing, he called his girlfriend and told her he’d be in the area breaking into homes. The police and the canine unit could not find suspected home robber, Matthew Riggins, but you know who did, the GATOR!

The animal was later found and had to be euthanized by a trapper from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It turns out that inside the gator’s stomach, the medical examiner found proof of how Riggins was killed. Euthanized? They should have pinned a medal on the gator’s chest for crime prevention!!! Sorry, I have to agree with Barefoot Bay resident Chuck Stokes who said, “I would say it’s poetic justice, you want to sit there and steal from people.”

An accused burglar is dead after Brevard County deputies said he hid in a pond while on the run and was killed by an 11-foot-long alligator.

Matthew Riggins, 22, of Palm Bay was reported missing Nov. 13. His body was found 10 days later floating in a pond near Latan Court and Barefoot Circle, in Barefoot Bay. Investigators said it had the makings of a gator attack.

Shortly before Riggins was reported missing, he called his girlfriend and told her he’d be in the area breaking into homes, deputies said.

“He was going to do burglaries in the Barefoot Bay area with another individual,” said Maj. Tod Goodyear, with the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Neighbors reported to authorities that they saw two men dressed in black lurking behind homes. Deputies began searching the area and were later joined by more deputies, K-9 units and a sheriff’s helicopter.

Investigators said Riggins then called his girlfriend to tell her they were being chased and lying low.

“Do you still hear them hollering, or did they hunker down?” deputies could be heard saying on radio traffic.

Judge Jerri Collins Sentences Domestic Violence Victim to Jail for Contempt of Court in Seminole County, FL courtroom

JUDGE SENTENCES DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VITIM TO JAIL FOR CONTEMPT OF COURT …

Wow, nothing like re-victimizing the victim. I will be the first to say that I do not all of the details of this case; however, the judges actions just seem very, very wrong. Judge Jerri Collins not only sentenced a female victim to jail, the judge berated her as well. The judge said to the victim after she said at the time she was going through a difficult time and anxiety replied with the following, “You think you’re going to have anxiety now? You haven’t even seen anxiety.” REALLY, who really thinks that is appropriate? The contempt of court case took place back in July and the woman has already served her 3 days in jail. The judge acts like she has never dealt with a domestic violence victim and the mental and physical abuse they go through. The law may be the law, but there were other options the judge could have sentenced this victim of domestic violence.

There had to be a better way of handling this.

How ironic, now the judge who sentences a domestic violence female victim for not testifying in a case against a domestic violence suspect is not talking. Isn’t that rich. So the judge doesn’t feel the need to answer any questions, huh? Maybe it is because judges think they are above the law.

Channel 9’s Karla Ray has been trying to question a Seminole County judge for three days about a ruling that sent a domestic violence victim to jail, instead of ordering community service or a fine for skipping out on a subpoena.

Ray went to the judge’s office to try and get her side.

Judge Jerri Collins said she won’t talk about the matter in case her decision is called for an appeal. The victim has the option to appeal but since she’s already served her sentence for contempt of court, it won’t change what she’s gone through.

After she failed to show, she received no pity from the judge during the brief hearing.

“You need to tell the court why I should not hold you in contempt of court, I can sentence you to jail,” Judge Jerri Collins said.

“I just, things were…” the sobbing woman said.

“Why didn’t you show up to court?” Collins asked.

“I’m just, my anxiety, and I’m just…” the woman replied.

“You think you’re going to have anxiety now? You haven’t even seen anxiety,” Collins told the woman.

“I know,” the woman said.

“Those statements you told to the police on the day of this incident, is it true? The incident that happened on April 2, is it true?”

“Yes,” the woman said.

“Then why wouldn’t you come to testify?” Collins asked.

In April, the woman called for help after she said the father of her child choked her and grabbed a kitchen knife.
