Lehigh Acres, Fla. – A man is dead after deputies say he went on a violent rampage in Lehigh Acres, ending it by cutting his own throat, this past Friday night.
Lee County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call coming from a home in the 3900 block of 6th St. W. around 9 p.m. Friday. The caller reported that a bloody, naked man was trying to break into his house and was ripping the screen door off the front entry way.
They say Mateescu walked away from his neighbor’s home and hit the caller’s vehicle, damaging it.
Mateescu returned to his own home across the street and kicked open his own door after failing to get inside his neighbor’s home. A short time later, Mateescu’s wife called 911 as well.
Deputies arrived on scene and say they were attacked by Mateescu, who was still naked and bleeding profusely. Deputies say Matteescu refused to allow them to take him into custody and physically resisted their efforts.
After subduing Mateescu, deputies noticed he had tried cut off his own head by repeatedly cutting his neck. Paramedics from the Lehigh Acres Fire Control and Rescue District were dispatched, according to Assistant Chief of Operations Ken Craft.
Mateescu was taken to Lehigh Regional Hospital where he died.
According to the sheriff’s office, deputies discovered a marijuana growing operation, bottles of anabolic steroids and a homemade hallucinogenic drug, including materials used to manufacture the drug.
Large amounts of blood at Mateescu’s home were found where presumably he cut his own throat.
