“naplesJust after Christmas, on December 30, 2012, Amanda Lau received the dreadful news.

According to the Fort Myers Police, her twin brother David had been murdered…one day prior to their 24th birthday.

FMPD detectives believe that during those early Sunday morning hours, an unidentified person entered David Lau’s home on Lafayette Street.  With no indication of forced entry, detectives were led to believe that David knew the assailant and granted him access to the home.

David Lau had been struggling with substance abuse issues and was believed to be involved in the sale of Heroin.  For these reasons, it was likely commonplace for people to be frequenting his Fort Myers home.
