• Report leaves more questions about Windermere officer's shooting death


    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - According to a toxicology report from the Orange County Medical Examiner, two teens connected to the shooting death of Windermere Police Officer Robert German did not have drugs in their system at the time of their suicides.

    In April, a report from the medical examiner said Alex Hollinghurst, 17, and Brandon Goode, 18, each died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

    German was shot and killed last month while checking on them while they were walking along a Windermere street.

    Authorities were searching for the teens because they had left suicide notes and were considered endangered.

    The teens, both from Davenport, were found dead a short distance from where German had been shot.

    The teenagers ran to a nearby business where each committed suicide, according to authorities.

    They said Goode first shot himself in the head and fell on his back.

    Hollinghurst was found lying across his chest with a single gunshot wound to the head, according to the report.

    Investigators said they searched for surveillance video of German confronting the pair right before one of them opened fire, but they said they will not release the video until the Sheriff’s Office completes its investigation.

    “Not one piece is going to explain it all,” said law enforcement expert Chuck Drago. “Likely the male died first and she fell on top of him.”

    Investigators have not said who fired the fatal shot that killed German.
