PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – An investigation is ongoing after a man was found dead inside a Pembroke Pines home.

The victim had been staying in the home with his wife.

Police said it was the person who owns the home, who is also a friend of the couple, that found the man dead inside.

According to authorities, it was a personal issue between the victim and his wife that led to his murder.

Surveillance video from a nearby home shows Gibb walking away from the neighborhood after the killing.

After the murder, police say Gibb went to a Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel about three miles away from the home.

SWAT officers were called to get Gibb out of the building.

“After several hours, she agreed to surrender peacefully without any use of force,” Capt. Adam Feiner, with the Pembroke Pines Police Department, said.

Despite Gibb giving investigators a statement, police said Sunday they still have not established a motive for the crime.

“The victim and the suspect were in the process of moving from the Largo, Florida area to the Big Key area,” Feiner said.
