Just one day after the horrible double homicide that occurred at a train crossing in San Marco last month, the perpetrator, identified as Ty Christopher Head, took his own life.
Before the incident, Head, who was a resident of Florida but had deep ties to Nashville, Tennessee, was living in a sober recovery center in Jacksonville Beach to address his difficulties with substance abuse and mental health.
Michael Keicher, who was Head’s roommate, noted that despite the fact that Head had a tendency to stay to himself, there were no signals of potentially aggressive behavior on Head’s part.
It is said that on the evening of the event, Head parked his car, attacked two women who were waiting at a train crossing in San Marco, and then ran away.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Head had never been convicted of a crime before the time of the killings, even though he was living in his car at the time.
The reasons for his violent actions are still a mystery, which is especially true given the unexpected passing of the perpetrator.
