Coconut Creek detectives search for killer of driver of red Camaro

Officers identify murder victim as Michael Robin Griffin

COCONUT CREEK, Fla. – It has been about a day since police officers found the body of an executive in a pool of blood, next to his red Chevrolet Camaro, and detectives are still searching for his killer.  

On Friday night, Coconut Creek Police Department detectives identified the victim as 56-year-old Michael Robin Griffin. 

A friend said he is the vice president of a company in Broward County. He had just arrived from a trip to Germany. Griffin allegedly told co-workers he wasn't feeling well, so he stopped at a Walmart pharmacy on Thursday night. Then, a co-worker said he vanished. 

A friend who was concerned that he wasn't answering his cell phone decided to call police. Officers found him about 3 a.m., Friday. He was dead outside of the Walmart at 5571 W. Hillsboro Blvd. 

The Camaro was towed and a firefighter used a high water pressure hose to remove his blood. Detectives didn't release surveillance video or identify any suspects, but they said he was murdered. 

Coconut Creek Police Department officers were asking anyone with information to call them at 954-973-6700 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
