Naked Woman Shot and Killed in Florida by Off-Duty Law Enforcement Officers


State agents in Florida are investigating the shooting and death of a woman found naked (and with a weapon?), shot and killed by two off-duty investigators. Deputies from the Hernando County Sheriff’s office blocked a portion of Orchard Way, in Spring Hill on Saturday.

The version of events is unavailable from the woman as she is dead, however, the version of events given by the two officers who have been put on administrative leave is as given below.

According the Al Nienhuis, the Hernando County Sheriff, Rocky Howard, a detective from the Sheriff’s office and William Machler, of the Tampa Police Department were both off-duty and were peacefully attending a social gathering on Saturday.

At this time, to the horror of both off-duty officers, Inga Marie Swanson, 42, approached without any clothes and confronted them over matters yet unknown. It is not clear, why the naked woman, who was behaving irrationally according to the police, was rational enough to pick out the two off-duty detectives from among others expected to be present at a ‘social gathering.’

The Hernando County Sheriff asserts emphatically about the dead woman, “She was not part of the gathering nor was she invited to the gathering.”

Now that seems to indicate the woman was not there to be at the gathering but to confront the law officers, may be?

Anyway, according to Nienhuis, after the confrontation the woman left, but “A short time later, she came back with a weapon and confronted both the Tampa police officer and my sheriff’s office detective.”

The nature of the weapon found (planted?) has not been publicized and according to NYTimes authorities have declined to comment on the nature of the weapon. Nor does anyone know why the dead woman was found naked, except the claims of the off-duty law officers.

She was quickly killed. “One or both fired their weapons,” says the Sheriff, about the actions of the off-duty officers, both of who had concealed weapons on their persons, even though they were at a social gathering.

Detective Howard, 31, has been working at the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office for six years, while Officer Machler, 26, has been working at the Tampa Police Department for the last four years.

    I mean 2 male officers shot their weapons or NOT clear if both shot their weapons and NOT clear what type of weapon was found on the women Planted or Cover up, with my experience with the Sheriffs office in Hernando County especially during Nugents Term and maybe the Sheriff now is not aware of his Deputies Actions, but I wouldn’t doubt it that a Planted weapon is possible! Now at a Gathering anyone else see a weapon besides the 2 officers? I mean 2 TRAINED officers couldn’t subdue this women, one distracts and the other grabs her, she showed up earlier without a weapon even though it’s claimed that the Detective called the Sheriffs Office he then when she didn’t have a so called weapon, they could and had every right to subdue her and call the Sheriffs Offices and as then have her Baker acted if they would have did the right thing right away she would still be alive, but i for sure know that there is a GREEN Wall of silence with the Hernando County Sheriffs Office like a Deputy Threaten to arrest me and give me tickets every time he saw my vehicle on the road, i went to IA and they asked a Supervisor to talk to me and let them just receive a verbal reprimand, as a Deputy Grab his Holster Gun when i ran outside my home to look for a person who broke into my vehicle took stuff my son came across the crime and was shot at and i wanted to find this suspect and i am being argued with by Deputy others Deputies witness this and again I complained again IA sends a supervisor to let me know the SGT. will give him a verbal Reprimand , but thank GOD i’m alive, but sorry for a family who if these trained Law Enforcement Officers did what they needed to do from the beginning and not let a Naked women walk off and then she returned and was killed by these officers who knows if she would have killed someone before she returned back to them, i guess not ruining their good time at the gathering as they claim turned out worse. Thank God for Rocket Science cause no one has common sense anymore.
