Three Teens Accused of Murdering Man in Jupiter FL Could Face Hate Crime Charges

Jupiter Florida Murder SuspectsJupiter Florida police are considering classifying the brutal bludgeoning death of a Hispanic teenager as a “hate crime.”

According to law enforcement, the three suspects robbed and murdered the 18-year-old victim in Jupiter, FL. The three suspects are also teenagers.

The Jupiter police chief recently characterized the death as a “senseless murder.”

The Jupiter police chief also said that authorities believe the suspects “specifically targeted the Hispanic community.” As a result, investigators are looking into officially labeling the homicide a “hate crime.”

Medical examiners conducted an autopsy on the victim and determined that the cause of death was blunt force trauma.

All three suspects have been charged with first degree murder and robbery. Two of the suspects appeared at a pretrial hearing to hear the charges against them; the third suspect refused to leave his cell.

If the suspects are ultimately convicted on the murder charges, they face severe penalties. As set forth by Florida Statutes Section 782.04, the premeditated murder of another human being can be classified as a capital felony. A conviction on first degree murder charges is punishable by the death penalty, life imprisonment, or a sentence of at least 40 years in Florida State Prison.

The three suspects are currently being housed at the Palm Beach County Jail. At this time, they are being held at the facility without bail.
