Thursday night, a restaurant worker stabbed his boss to death for posting his picture online earlier this month.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Tilus Lebrun after receiving 911 calls from terrified diners at Jimmy the Greek Taverna Restaurant in Palm Beach County, Fl. From the Sun-Sentinel:
Employees and patrons of the restaurant told deputies that [owner Dimitrios] Karaloukas was sitting in the restaurant when Lebrun attacked him with a large knife, which some witnesses described to CBS12 as a meat cleaver. They said Lebrun walked up to Karaloukas and stabbed him three times in the left side and once in the back for no apparent reason, according to the report.
Karaloukas died later at a local hospital. Another worker at the restaurant was also stabbed in the attack and is critical condition.
After he was arrested, Lebrun spoke to a Haitian sheriff’s deputy in Creole, reportedly saying, “I killed him because he took my picture on March 2 and posted it on the internet.”
Later, at the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office headquarters, Lebrun elaborated: “They need to learn how to respect people. I have three kids in Haiti. I know they will suffer, but they will survive,” he told the deputy in Creole, according to the sheriff’s report.
Lebrun is being held in Palm Beach County jail on first-degree murder charges.
