PLANTATION, Fla. – A 26-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night on accusations that he stabbed his father to death.
Plantation police said they were called to a home in the gated Coco Plum Estates at the intersection of West Coco Plum Circle and Southwest Eighth Street, near the Jacaranda Golf Club, in reference to a domestic dispute.
Local 10 cameras captured police going in and out of the gated community throughout the night.
Detectives say this started as an argument and ended with a stabbing, with Thomas Loperfido killing his father.
Records show Loperfido has a criminal past, which include charges of aggravated assault and battery.
Just days before police say he killed his father, he posted a message on Facebook saying, “Happy Father’s Day … my dad is the best.”
Loperfido is being held at the Broward County Main Jail without bond.
No other details were immediately released.
