Yellow tarps covered the bodies of a woman and a teenage girl after a man shot and killed them and fled on Wednesday morning in North Lauderdale, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

Family members told Local 10 that Jennifer Bellony and her teenage daughter Anastasia were the victims of Wednesday’s horrific crime.

Loved ones visited Bellony’s home today to grieve and to demand justice.

“You are a coward and God will deal with you,” said Balanda Bellony, Jennifer’s aunt. “He took my baby’s life away, he took my best friend, my niece.”

Family members said the couple had a rocky past at the hands of Anglin, and they had been divorced for two years.

Records show Bellony asked for a domestic violence restraining order against Anglin back in 2018.

A woman who also did not want to go on camera did not know the family, but lit a candle and brought flowers to honor Bellony and her daughter.

Deputies and North Lauderdale Fire Rescue responded shortly after 9 a.m. to the area of Tam Oshanter Boulevard and 80th Avenue, according to Gerdy St. Louis, a BSO spokeswoman. On Wednesday afternoon, deputies identified the suspect in the fatal shooting as Anglin, a 34-year-old fugitive who frequents the Margate area.

Crime scene tape surrounded two parking lots at the Willow Woods Townhomes & Lofts residential complex, north of the Hampton Pines Park’s fishing lake and playground. One body was on the grass in between two-story buildings and two parking lots; the other was next to a blue four-door car in the crime scene’s northern parking lot.

Investigators were on the scene for hours gathering evidence and deputies are asking anyone with information on Anglin’s whereabouts to come forward.

Deputies were searching for witnesses. They were also asking anyone with information about the shooting to call Homicide Detective John Curcio at 954-321-4212 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477. There is a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
