Homicide Lt. Dave Coleman said that Lombardi had been
stabbed multiple times in the upper torso. He added that no weapon was found,
nor were any suspects in custody.

 

Neighbors said that Lombardi was a friendly man who would
wave in greeting when they went by and that he was single, but had adult
children and two well-behaved pit bull dogs. They said he had a business
servicing ATM machines, but detectives did not indicate if robbery was involved
in the murder.

Early in the afternoon, detectives stretched crime scene
tape across Velan Drive at Golf
Course Road, blocking access to all but law enforcement
vehicles. A woman clad in turquoise scrubs driving an SUV stopped at the
barricade and told deputies her Undine Road
address, which they recognized as the victim’s location. They asked her to park
and wait for awhile; after approximately 15 minutes, the woman attempted to
drive away, but deputies stopped her. After a female friend arrived, sheriff’s
officials told the woman that her father had been killed and she collapsed in
her friend’s arms.
