What's most frightening, on the same day that Collin Edouard found that second message he also found a set of personal keys, with one key that apparently fit, sitting right in the lock of the front door. The victim took it as a message that the criminals may return. "We don't even want to sleep in our house, because we don't know exactly what to expect. We're not coming back," he said. Edouard claims Seminole Pointe's Concord Management, which has many other apartments, only offered a move without new fees and deposits if he stayed in the same complex. "If somebody's watching me that closely and they're knowing my sexual orientation, they will also be watching where we're moving to," he said.
The apartment management company has since changed its mind after being contacted by the news media.
Detectives have not made any arrests and say they have very few leads in the case.
Meanwhile, in Orlando: Police are looking for the nine teenagers who attacked a 20-year-old man walking down the street. The victim told investigators the teens asked whether he was gay before the attack. The man says he is bisexual. The Orange County Sheriff's Office said the case will be investigated as a hate crime.
