Lauderhill police struggle to find answers year after triple shooting

Victim found tied up, executed inside home, police say

LAUDERHILL, Fla. – Two families are desperate for answers more than a year after their three loved ones were killed at their home in Lauderhill.

"I lost my mother who was everything to me," Quowanda Ford said. "It's just like having somebody for 35 years and all of the sudden one day they're gone."

Police said the three victims were tied up and executed last year on Labor Day. 

The victims were identified as Lisa Foreman, 50, a mother, grandmother and a Broward Clerk of Courts employee for 28 years; Dwight Brown, 42, who was Foreman's boyfriend, a father and a longshoreman; and his son, Denzel Brown, 21, who was a student on his way to becoming a master electrician.

"He was just the best kid ever. You meet him (and) his personality was out of this world," Denzel Brown’s uncle, Michael Smith, said. 

Smith, who is Dwight Brown's brother, said the nightmare replays in his head.

He said he went to his brother’s house at 3650 NW Third St. after no one heard from him,

"I was trying to wake them up, but nobody moved," Smith said. 

Police said the trio was shot multiple times throughout multiple parts of their bodies.

Yet, neighbors claim to have heard and seen nothing.

"I definitely believe there is someone or multiple people that do have information," Lauderhill Police Detective Kaela Allison said. 

Lauderhill detectives have interviewed more than 30 people.

They learned that more than three people were involved in the shooting, and they believe those people are still in South Florida.

"The more time that passes by, the less interest people have, and less interest people have in doing the right thing," Allison said. 

Doing the right thing could be a quick anonymous phone call that could help ease some of the pain for the families who lost their loves ones.

"Please, in the name of Jesus, all of us have kids, and someday we're going to need somebody," Dwight Brown's mother, Olga Clark, said. "Trust me. We need somebody to say something, because somebody knows something."

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS. Calls may remain anonymous. A reward of up to $9,000 is offered for information that leads to an arrest.
