The Herald's Demarzo Carjacked
If you didn't think Miami Herald crime reporter Wanda Demarzo's week could get any worse, think again. She and her husband, Richard, were robbed at gunpoint and carjacked outside a convenience store early this morning, according a report in her newspaper.
Broward Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating the carjacking and robbery of a Miami Herald reporter and her husband early Thursday.
According to a police report, Wanda DeMarzo, 54, a Herald crime reporter, and her husband, Richard, 51, were approached by two men, one armed with a pistol, outside a convenience store at 3774 NE Third Ave. in Deerfield Beach around 3:50 a.m.
One man threatened the pair with the gun, demanding the keys to the couple's silver 2006 Kia Sorento before driving off, the report says.
Thursday evening, BSO detectives were questioning two men in Hollywood after they were spotted abandoning a Kia that fit the description of the stolen vehicle.
This after news broke two days ago that the Herald is investigating an allegation of plagiarism against Demarzo made by the Sun-Sentinel. Assumedly she's okay, but who says lightning can't strike twice?
