ST. PETERSBURG, FL (WFLA) – A veteran in St. Petersburg is a step closer to figuring out who keeps smearing feces on his door.
On March 27, 87-year-old Ed Freeh and his daughter made the shocking discovery that someone covered his door in human waste.
Early Sunday morning, Freeh says he woke up to noises and found his door covered again.
“I came and tried to open the front door, and ooh it almost knocked me down, it was awful,” described Freeh.
This time, he has a picture of the person who did it.
The first time this happened, WFLA’s Chip Osowski suggested Freeh get a Ring doorbell cam. Freeh took his advice, and the camera he bought caught a person walking up to his door.
Freeh and his daughter believe they know who the man is, but police haven’t been able to find him.
“If we do, he may go to jail. It would have been better for him to come say he did it and was sorry and then stay out of here,” said Freeh.
St. Petersburg Police tell WFLA they are still investigating. A hunch isn’t enough for them to make an arrest, so anyone who knows anything about this case and who might be responsible is asked to call 911.
