AP man charged with Frostproof murder
FROSTPROOF -- An Avon Park man is charged with murder in Polk County after the shooting death of another Avon Park man on Saturday.
According to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, sometime after 11 p.m. on Saturday, 25-year-old Travis Lenard Fogle, of 922 S. Woodrow Ave. in Avon Park, asked his girlfriend Petra S. Moore of Tampa, to take him to the First Baptist Hilltop Church at 200 Maxcy Road in Frostproof.
Fogle said he needed to give something to 25-year-old Jamanus Beck of 721 South Delaney Ave. in Avon Park.
The couple arrived at the church around 11:30 and Fogle called Beck to confirm the meeting, a HCSO press release said. A vehicle arrived at the church and Fogle got out of the car on the passenger side. He didn't close the door all the way and Moore leaned over to close the door. When she did, she heard a "pop."
Moore saw the car pull away. She got out of the vehicle and found Fogle on the ground, shot.
Through the investigation detectives learned Beck's whereabouts and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was taken into custody at the Frostproof substation without incident and charged with murder. Why the two had agreed to meet remains under investigation.
