On December 23, Lakeland police responded to a Golden Corral parking lot where they found 22-day-old Betsey Stephens dead inside a car.

Belvoir was at the attraction with his 25-year-old daughter celebrating Christmas one day early because his daughter wanted to spend Christmas day with her boyfriend.
His daughter had already completed the rope course and watched as her father fell from the highest point of the course and landed on the cement floor 30-feet below.
Emergency responders administered CPR on Belvoir and rushed him to Dr. Phillips Hospital, but he would later die from his injuries.
No official word on what the major malfunction was, but reports say Belvoir was still in his harness when he landed and that the disconnect was from where the harness attached to the ride.
“He was still hooked on his harness, but the little thing that it goes into is what came out of. The actual ride piece itself. There’s little sliders,” said Lt. Lovetta Quinn-Henry of the Orlando Police Department.…
Bartow, Fl – April Rollison, 31, died one week after she was taken to the hospital to have a glass crack pipe removed from her vagina.
Rollison was arrested last week on drug charges and was taken to the Polk County Jail. While being booked, a body scan revealed two unidentified objects were stashed inside her vagina. She was then transported to Bartow Regional Medical Center to have the objects removed.
Before she was examined, Rollison told the nurse she had to use the bathroom. While the nurse went to retrieve a bedpan, the deputy that escorted her to the hospital stepped behind a curtain to give her some privacy.
That’s when police believe Rollison removed a prescription pill container containing two grams of crack from her ham wallet and ingested the drugs. Police do not know if Rollison ingested the cocaine orally, or if it was absorbed inside her vagina.
When the nurse and deputy returned, they would find the empty pill bottle on the floor, along with a white substance later identified as cocaine.…
