PBSO investigates Lake Park homicide

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office has identified the victim of a homicide in Lake Park.

A neighbor walking in the 400 block of Cypress Ave., saw a man lying face down in the road and called 911 early Thursday morning. 

Arriving deputies and fire rescue crews said the man was dead when they arrived at the scene.

It was determined he was the victim of a homicide as medical examiner employees prepared to remove him from the scene.

Friday morning PBSO identified the man as 20-year-old Davion Crometie.

"I hope that they can find out what happened and that people can have a piece of mind here," said Lake Park resident Linda Bollbach. 

Investigators have not said how Crometie died.

"It kind of makes you wonder about everything in general. It seems like a pretty nice neighborhood. I just work in the area but I never see much going on," said a man who didn't want to be identified by name. 

PBSO said the investigation is active and ongoing.
