Interestingly enough, the culprit did not make any claims about why did he commit the crime. He only stated that he had taken cocaine and marijuana earlier in the day before going for the delivery. The incident and the harrowing nature of it has shocked the residents of the locality. As a neighbour of Udell, Mr. Bobbi Cohen aptly put it, “Mental health problems seem to be worse….People can’t trust something as simple as a normal delivery.”
There have been condolences pouring in from almost every corner. Best Buy, Florida Atlantic University where Udell was previously working, and Udell’s family were a few of them.
