    A retired firefighter from Jupiter is dead after crashing his plane into the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida Keys early Monday morning. 

    The crash was reported near Marathon shortly after midnight.

    Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Edward Elgin, 53, was the only passenger on board the single-engine Piper plane when it crashed about a mile offshore of 63rd Street.

    Authorities said a man who witnessed the crash called 911. They said he got on his boat and saw debris fro the plane and Elgin's body.

    When the U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission arrived at the scene, they found the plane fully submerged. 

    Riviera Beach Mayor Thomas Masters said Elgin retired about a year and a half ago from the Riviera Beach Fire-Rescue Department, where he served as a division chief. Masters said flags are being flown at half-staff in Elgin's honor.

    Elgin's family said he was in the Florida Keys for lobster season.

    Herrin said the Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the crash.

    When a Local 10 News viewer reached out to the Call Christina team about his downgraded credit score due to an unpaid debt on his credit report, Local 10 News sought advice on how to challenge  and improve credit ratings. 

    "This is the marks on my credit report.  The 697 has always been above 750," Luis Barranuevo said.

    Barranuevo's credit score took a hit after a car financing company reported him for a debt he didn't know he owed.

    "It's not fair," Barrnuevo said. 

    Having a good credit score is vital.  Our lives revolve around it. "Because bad credit costs you a lot of money," consumer protection attorney Jason Weaver said. 

    So what's a really good score?  Local 10 News asked some viewers. 

    "Credit scores you see them over 800 now, which is real good," Guy Abbotoni said. 

    "700, 720 -- anything over 700 I would consider good," Stan Cohen said.       

    A good credit score is more than just paying your bills on time. Those three digit numbers are the key to our financial health. The credit scoring system gives lenders information on who is most likely able to repay a debt. 

    FICO, or the Fair Isaac Corporation developed the formula to determine our score.  It's based on a few factors.  How much money we owe, new credit inquires when we apply for credit, the length of our credit history, the types of credit we have such as loans and our payment history. 

    That score is reported by the three credit reporting bureaus Experian, Equifax and Transunion. Through the Fair credit reporting act or FCRA, you as a consumer are allowed to request a copy of your credit report yearly.

    READ: How credit scores are calculated.

    "Life works on your credit rating. There are things that we need to buy in our day to day life whether it's a house a car, a car repair, a refrigerator that we can put out all the cash at once.  We can't afford it we need credit," Weaver said. 

    In Barranuevo's case, a lower credit score translated in him paying a higher interest rate for a new car. 

    "We ended up having to pay one percentage point more because my credit score was not over 700," Barranuevo said. 

    He tried resolving the issue with the financial company, then the collection agency and credit reporting bureau before calling Local 10 News' Call Christina.

    "All they kept saying to me was, 'Well, the only way you can make it better is if you pay the money, at least it looked like you paid the money," Barranuevo said.

    But Weaver said many times credit reports can contain errors.

    "There is a whole world of errors on credit reports that you're probably not aware of because they are mistakenly reported to your credit report.  In the neighborhood of 70 percent of people's credit reports is incorrect," Weaver said. 

    Weaver has some suggestions on how to challenge your credit report if you think something is an error. 

    First, send a dispute letter telling the credit reporting company, in writing, what information you think is inaccurate.

    Secondly, ask for a reinvestigation. As a consumer you have right to start a reinvestigation process if you think it's wrong.  If it can't be verified, it has to be removed from your credit report. If it's not taken off after a dispute, you may have the right to sue under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

    Third, get your credit report yearly and look at it.  It's free. Review it and don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Click here to get your free credit report.

    "Don't assume just because a company says you owe the money, you owe the money," Weaver said.

    The Call Christina team contacted the finance company on behalf of Barranuevo.  He had been a repeat customer in good standing and they decided to excuse the debt of $300.  It has since been removed it from his credit report.

    An 18-year-old man accused in the fatal shooting of a 10-year-old boy in Miami earlier this year faced a judge in a Miami-Dade County courtroom Monday morning.

    "Do you have any money to hire a lawyer to represent you in this case?" Judge Mindy Glazer asked Ernest Rowell.

    "I've got to call my mom and see," Rowell said.

    Rowell and Khalib Newkirk, 15, were taken into custody early Saturday morning. Police said the pair killed Marlon Eason as the child chased after a basketball in front of his home in Overtown.

    Eason's family held a candlelight vigil over the weekend at the home off Northwest Fourth Court.

    Police said the shooting happened March 24, when Rowell was 17 years old. Because Rowell was a juvenile at the time of the shooting, he will now be transferred to juvenile court.

    Police said the teens could also be connected the murder of Richard Hallman, 16, who was shot and killed about two hours before Eason.

    Police said shell casings on the ground at both scenes match the same gun.

    "He will get a trip to sit in juvenile court for 21 days or for as long as it takes for the state to prepare direct-file paperwork or for the state to obtain a grand jury indictment," Glazer said.

    Newkirk had a hearing scheduled in juvenile court, which he did not attend. His mother was present, however, and was told by Judge Orlando Prescott that her son would remain within the juvenile justice system for the time being.

    The state announced that it intends to charge Newkirk as an adult with second-degree murder.

    During a news conference later in the afternoon, Miami-Dade County State Attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle and Miami Police Chief Rodolfo Llanes thanked the community for their help in finding the suspects.

    "Today is not a celebration. Today is a day for all of us to thank the community for coming forward because we have made two arrests in the murder of Marlon Eason," Llanes said. "That family is going to miss that little boy forever, so we're not celebrating the arrests, but what we are doing is saying that together we can really make a difference."

    According to an arrest report, the teens admitted to the shooting, but told detectives that they were targeting a car that was carrying gang rivals and never meant to shoot Eason.

    Fernandez-Rundle said the state is seeking to charge both suspects as adults and said both will remain jailed without bond.

    A Broward County woman told detectives that she was drinking alcohol with her husband and didn't remember shooting him early Saturday morning, an arrest report states.

    Tina Belles, 57, was arrested on one count of premeditated murder and remains at the Broward County Jail.

    Belles' son told a 911 dispatcher that he was sleeping upstairs at their home at 1940 SW 46th Terrace when he heard a gunshot at about 8:30 a.m.

    "I was up sleeping in my room and these two -- I heard them arguing down here, but you know I just heard like a regular argument and the next thing I heard was a bang, and I came down," Belles' son, Justin Lindley, said. "They've been drinking."

    Belles can be heard screaming in the background throughout the 911 call with Lindley continuing to reassure her that help is on the way.

    "Mom, I need you to calm down," Lindley tells his hysterical mother at one point.

    According to the report, deputies arrived at the home to find Belles standing over her husband, identified as Rodney Belles.

    The victim, who suffered a gunshot wound to the torso, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Deputies said Tina Belles confessed multiple times saying, "I went and grabbed the gun and shot him" and "I shot my husband."

    Deputies said a handgun was found on the kitchen counter and a spent casing was on the floor.

    A medical examiner's report revealed that the gunshot wound was not a close contact wound. Detectives said they believe Belles shot her husband from a different room.

    According to the report, Belles later told detectives that she had been drinking with her husband late Friday night and didn't remember anything else.

    A professor from the University of Michigan was arrested in Broward County Friday and accused of traveling across state lines to engage in illegal sexual activity with a minor.

    James Cavalcoli, 51, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, was arrested in Weston after traveling from Michigan to meet a 14-year-old juvenile for sex. Authorities say Cavalcoli was actually communicating with an undercover police officer.

    Cavalcoli made arrangements to meet the child through an undercover FDLE agent who he believed to be the child’s father. The officer said he began communicating with a "Jim" on a website that catered to men discussing fetishes, child pornography and sexual activity with young boys around Thanksgiving in 2013.

    Investigators say Cavalcoli had multiple digital devices, including a personal laptop, at the time of the arrest. Those items were confiscated as evidence and are undergoing forensic examination.

    Cavalcoli is an assistant professor of computational medicine and bioinformatics at the University of Michigan, according to school records.

    Cavalcoli was booked into the Broward County Jail pending transport to federal court in Fort Lauderdale, where he will be charged.

    Police are investigating after an SUV slammed into a meditation and Buddhist center in Oakland Park Monday afternoon.

    The crash was reported about 2:45 p.m. at 140 W. Prospect Road.

    A person who witnessed the crash outside the Drolma Kadampa Buddhist Center said the driver went through a handicap barricade.

    According to Oakland Park Fire Rescue, the driver claimed that another "crazy driver" ran him off the road after coming into his lane.

    "I've driven for 30-something years and this is the first time something has happened," the driver told Local 10 News.  

    Authorities said the driver claimed that he was forced to swerve into westbound traffic and then over-corrected before slamming into the building.

    No one was inside the building at the time and the driver was not injured.

    Authorities said the driver will not be cited.

    The Broward Sheriff's Office has made an arrest after surveillance video showing a teenager snatching an iPad from a 4-year-old boy at a hair salon in Tamarac went viral.

    Aaron Sapp, 16, faces one count of strong-arm robbery, a felony, and one count of violation of probation.

    Deputies said several anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers brought them to Sapp, who they said ran as detectives and Sapp's mother went to his home Monday.

    The robbery was reported July 24 at Grace Salon, in Tamarac.

    Surveillance video shows a teen, believed to be Sapp, pacing back and forth outside the salon before entering and asking if his mother was inside.

    As the salon owner turns to check, the teen snatches the salon's iPad from the boy, who was watching cartoons as he waited for his mother to finish her shift.

    Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis Jr. later donated a replacement iPad to the salon.

    Deputies said Sapp was on probation for unrelated charges at the time of the robbery.

    Friends and family members of a man accused of firing at a state trooper on a north Florida highway before he was shot dead said they are shocked by the incident.

    "The Earl I know would do nothing like this," Jackson's church colleague Sandra Freeman said.

    Loved ones said Earl Jackson, 59, of Miami had worked as a corrections sergeant at the Miami-Dade Courthouse for 26 years.

    "(He was) very humble, compassionate (and) hardworking," a man who was friend's with Jackson said.

    "It's just not his character," Freeman said. "Earl was about taking care of family -- doing his catering."

    Jackson was shot and killed two weeks at the end of a five-hour manhunt in the woods off Interstate 75 near Gainesville.

    Deputies with the Alachua County Sheriff's Office said Jackson was stopped on the shoulder and fired shots at deputies.

    The highway was shut down for hours as law enforcement officials searched for Jackson.

    "When deputies confronted him in the woods, he made some statements and called out the name ISIS," Art Forgey of the Alachua County Sheriff's Office said. 

    Deputies said they checked Jackson's car for explosives.

    "Where you get this ISIS stuff from? That's crazy," Jackson's neighbor Michael Bragg said. 

    Some of Jackson's friends said the details of the shooting sound like a cover up by deputies.

    "It didn't sit well, especially with all things happening to black guys -- police shootings and all of these other things," Bragg said.

    A South Florida gymnastics coach arrested last month on child pornography charges now faces a new charge stemming from an 11-year-old complaint.

    Carl Lechner, who was still in jail after his July 31 arrest, now faces a charge of sexual battery on a person under the age of 12. The 66-year-old's additional charge comes after a Broward Sheriff's Office detective interviewed the alleged victim, now 21, in August.

    She said Lechner repeatedly had her play a game during which she hid her face and kept her eyes closed while he sexually battered her, a probable cause affidavit said.

    The woman said Lechner took a picture of her wearing a red dress without any panties. She said Lechner warned her that if she told anyone about what was happening, he would show the picture to her guardians and they would "know she was a bad girl."

    Lechner's actions went on between 1999 and 2003, from the time the woman was 3 to 7, the affidavit said.

    A complaint was first filed in 2004, but Lechner was never charged.

    Lechner, who lives in Lauderdale Lakes, worked at CATS Gymnastics, a children's fitness center in Jupiter, at the time of his initial arrest.

    Detectives said Lechner owned and operated TAG USA Gymnastics in Weston from 1989 to 2010 and in Davie from 1989 to 2000. They said he also ran a youth summer camp at the Lauderdale Isles Yacht & Tennis Club in Fort Lauderdale.

    In addition to his most recent charge, Lechner also faces seven counts of possession of child pornography, one count of compiling computer pornography, three counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.

    The city of Fort Lauderdale lifted its precautionary boil water notice Tuesday.

    Over the weekend, city officials upgraded its boil water advisory to a boil water warning after a sample from a ground water well tested positive for E. coli.

    Aside from Fort Lauderdale, the warning also affected those in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Oakland Park, Wilton Manors, Sea Ranch Lakes, Davie and Tamarac.

    Fort Lauderdale spokesman Matt Little said test results show that "there was never a problem with the water leaving our (the city's) water treatment facilities," and the city's water is now "safe for drinking and all other uses."

    The well that initially tested positive for E. coli was taken out of service.

    Anyone with information about the boil water notice is asked to call the city's customer service center at 954-828-8000.

    Pembroke Pines police said a Pomeranian that was found beaten to death with a note on the dog's body is the worst case of animal abuse the city has ever seen.

    "To be honest with you, I don't think I've ever seen a case like this in our city," Major Carlos Bermudez said.

    Verline Barthelemy told Local 10 News she let Foxx out of her home Friday while she was cooking, but she couldn't find her beloved pet a few minutes later.

    The next day, Barthelemy's boyfriend found the 13-year-old dog's body on the back porch, along with a note that read, "We beat it 2 death. LOL! Hahaha!"

    "When I read it, it was just horrible, horrifying," Barthelemy said. "I just started crying, like, I can't even talk about it. It hurts."

    During a news conference Tuesday afternoon, police said several people have called to offer rewards for the arrest and conviction of the dog's killer.

    Graphic: dog beaten to death

    Dr. Ron Ridge, a veterinarian at St. Francis Emergency Animal Hospital, said he believes the dog likely died from being repeatedly kicked. X-rays showed Foxx had a dislocated spine, broken ribs and a broken jaw, among other injuries.

    "What disturbs me the most is that somebody apparently thought this was humorous and took joy and pleasure in presenting the dog like this," Ridge said.  

    Police said they believe this is an isolated incident and do not believe other people in the area are at risk.

    A death investigation is under way in Hialeah after two women were found dead Monday night.

    The duplex is located in the 900 block of East 23rd Street.

    Police said an 82-year-old woman and a 32-year-old women were found dead on the property.

    According to neighbors, the older woman lived in the back of the building and has been renting the home for about seven years.

    Neighbors said the second victim has rented an efficiency in the building for two years.

    The women are not related, and neighbors believe police are looking for the younger woman's ex-boyfriend as a possible suspect.

    "We believe that it was a jealous boyfriend from the girl in front, and perhaps the little old lady heard something, came out and he didn't want her to witness because it's not robbery, you know, because everything is there," a neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said.

    Neighbors said the woman and her ex-boyfriend had a falling out about a month ago and have repeatedly argued about whether or not he owes her rent money.

    Police have not confirmed the neighbors' claims, but said they are searching for a man, identified as Adrian Leyva, who the women knew.

    Hialeah police spokesman Carl Zogby did not name Leyva as a suspect in the case, but said authorities are searching for him "concerning his welfare."

    Anyone with information about Leyva's whereabouts is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    A Miami Beach real estate agent has been arrested after he tried to extort an increasing amount of hundreds of thousands of dollars from two of South Florida's most well-known luxury real estate agents, police said.

    Kevin Tomlinson, a Realtor who worked for One Sotheby's International Realty, was arrested Saturday on one count of extortion and other charges related to his apprehension.

    According to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained Tuesday by Local 10 News, the 48-year-old Realtor attempted to blackmail partners Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg into paying him as much as $800,000.

    Tomlinson's extortion plot began in April, when he filed an administrative complaint with the Miami Association of Realtors against Eber and Hertzberg for alleged violations of the multiple listing service, Miami Beach police Detective Wayne Holbrook wrote in the report.

    In July, Tomlinson contacted Hertzberg and offered to meet with her, "suggesting he had a way of withdrawing" the complaint, Holbrook wrote.

    The next day, Tomlinson met with Hertzberg at her home, at which time he told her that he "had the power to resolve the complaint and make it go away" for $500,000, to be split between Eber and Hertzberg, Holbrook wrote. Tomlinson told Hertzberg that if they didn't pay him, he would go public with the information and "ruin their reputations," the warrant said.

    Hertzberg then called Eber, placing her on speakerphone, for Tomlinson to repeat his demands, the report said. This time, Tomlinson said he would accept "no less" than $400,000 between them, Holbrook wrote.

    Instead of paying, Eber and Hertzberg filed a report with the Miami Beach Police Department on July 17.

    Holbrook said he had Hertzberg call Tomlinson four times while he was listening to the conversation. During one of the August conversations, Tomlinson told Hertzberg to tell their attorney that they are settling the matter themselves, warning that "horrible things would happen" if they didn't, Holbrook wrote.

    The Jills video

    At the request of Holbrook, Hertzberg met with Tomlinson last week at her home, where she presented him with a check for $400,000, but Tomlinson now demanded $800,000, saying there was a potential class-action lawsuit that would make it more difficult to go away, the warrant said.

    When Hertzberg contacted Tomlinson on Friday, he told her it was too late, the warrant said.

    As police attempted to arrest Tomlinson at his Miami Beach penthouse Saturday, he refused to open the locked door, cursing Hertzberg by name, an arrest report said.

    Police had to wait for the building manager to unlock the door. Once they entered, officers had to restrain Tomlinson, who tried to grab one of their guns, the report said.

    Tomlinson was eventually subdued and taken into custody. He also faces charges of resisting arrest with violence and depriving an officer of means of protection.

    "The Jills," as they are known professionally, have sold some of Miami-Dade County's priciest homes, including the Miami Beach property once owned by actor Matt Damon.

    A man believed to have been involved in a shootout with police who were busting a marijuana grow house in Miami accepted a plea deal Tuesday morning.

    Luis Estevanell pleaded guilty to all eight counts and will spend 10 years in federal prison with credit for time served.

    Estevanell has been in jail since July 2012.

    According to prosecutors, Estevanell  diverted an officer's attention away from his friend, Gerard Delgado, who jumped out of a parked car and started shooting at officers and FBI agents who were responding to a tip that residents were operating a marijuana grow house.

    "He didn't try to help me, try to give me aide,” Detective John Saavedra, who was shot in the incident, told a judge in 2013. “On the contrary, he's (Estevanell) attacking me as I'm bleeding out. When I hit the ground, he punched me, kicked me, then lunged at me and grabbed my rosary off my neck, knocking my firearm out of my hand. That's when I began planning my escape route, my escape from any further harm -- him possibly killing me with my firearm."

    Attorneys representing Estevanell said their client took cover when the shooting started and never attacked Saavedra.

    Delgado was killed in the shootout.

    Police said that 80 pounds of marijuana, worth about $90,000, were found inside the grow house.

    Estevanell will be on probation for 10 years after his release.

    Following an extensive Call Christina investigation into a series of Miami apartments that were in deplorable conditions, U.S. Rep. Daphne Campbell has drafted a bill that will hold so-called slumlords accountable for their actions.

    In a news release Tueday, Campbell said the bill would amend current state statue, "which identifies the rules and regulations that landlords must follow, State Statue 83.64 F.S. which outlaws retaliatory behavior, and 83.67 F.S. outlining prohibitions for landlords. It will now include criminal penalties for specified prohibited practices by a landlord relating to maintenance of the premises, retaliatory conduct, and other protections for tenants."

    "This was a well thought out and intelligent way to amend existing legislation," former state and federal prosecutor David Weinstein said. "This amendment puts some teeth into the current law and puts landlords on notice that their inhumane treatment of their tenants will not be tolerated. By making a first violation a misdemeanor, it will only allow law enforcement to make an arrest if they personally observe the violation. This will also allow for coordinating with the State Attorney's Office when tenants have complaints."

    The nine apartments, totaling 147 units, that were a part of the Local 10 News investigation were located in Liberty City and Overtown. They are all owned by companies state records show are run by Denise Vaknin of New Jersey.

    "Christina Vazquez did an interview with me and allowed me to identify the many issues that the tenants were having with their 'Slumlords,'" Campbell said. "The article that Ms. Vasquez wrote 'Miami owed more than $2.4 million in fines for compliance violations,' highlighted the obvious disregard for the law that the "Slumlords" had. Ms. Vasquez even went as far as traveling to New Jersey to wrangle in a "Slumlord" that refused to answer questions. This dedication has shown Ms. Vasquez's commitment to finding justice for low-income residents."

    The apartments have since received an Order of Closure by the state and a judge has  ordered that attorney Linda Leali be appointed as a receiver, allowing Leali to handle the management of the buildings while placing restrictions on the property owner's control.

    Uber could soon be coming back to Broward County.

    A proposal to allow the ride-sharing service back on the streets is on the county commission's agenda Tuesday.

    The proposal comes after commissioners received widespread criticism after passing measures that forced Uber and its smaller competitor Lyft out of the county. On Tuesday, commissioners are addressing ways it could possibly bring the ride-sharing service back.

    Uber urged its supporters to attend the meeting and speak in favor of the app.

    Three commissioners have proposed plans for ways to re-establish ride-sharing in the area.

    A suggested plan would require Uber drivers to have liability insurance, background checks for all drivers, annual vehicle inspections and vehicles would be expected to display an inspection sticker.

    Uber suspended its service in Broward County on July 31 after the county passed new requirements for ride-sharing drivers, including county background checks and a mandatory chauffeur's license.

    Broward County Mayor Tim Ryan said it's doubtful that the commission will reach a decision Tuesday.
