Name: John “Jack” Pehota.
Died: September 23, 2015.
Age at death: 77.
Cause of death: Murder.
Location: The Hammock, Florida, USA.
Disability: Heart condition, mobility impairment.
John was shot by his wife.
He loved the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing, and collected guns. In 2005, a local newspaper published a letter to the editor that John had written, in which he complained about a recent ban on beach-going vehicles. The ban on vehicles extended to John’s mobility scooter, and because he could not walk to the beach while carrying his fishing tackle, the ban prevented him from going fishing.
John owned a small dog and was often seen walking the dog around his neighborhood.
Perpetrator: Anna Pehota (Wife), charged with 2nd-degree murder.
