Police have made an arrest in connection to a woman found dead inside a North Miami Beach home.
North Miami Beach Police confirmed they have arrested 40-year-old Clieve Lake, charging him with the murder of his wife Rosalinda Lake.
Detectives said she was stabbed to death inside her home in the area of Northeast 16th Avenue and 160th Street.
“Our investigation concluded that during the early hours on yesterday’s date, Mr. Lake and his girlfriend were involved in some sort of altercation,” North Miami Beach Police Capt. Juan Pinillos said, “which led to Mr. Lake tying up his girlfriend and stabbing her several times. He then fled the residence and left her to die, while also leaving their infant child in the house with their dying mother.”
Officials said Clieve tried to blame the killing on another person that was present during the initial altercation.
Along with the arrest, Tuesday, surveillance video was released showing a man carrying a baby frantically knocking on doors just moments after the woman’s body was found. Police believe that man is the suspect.
“I heard a loud banging on the door. Loud, loud banging, and he was shouting my name, ‘Ena, Ena, call the police, call the police. She’s dead,’” said neighbor Ena Burgess.
Burgess said the man was in tears as he knocked on her door.
Minutes later, police arrived and began investigating.
“He pound the window so hard, there’s blood on the window as we speak,” Burgess said.
At first, police were tight-lipped as to the identity of the victim.
“Officers arrived and did confirm there was an adult deceased inside the residence,” said Pinillos. “As of this time, we are treating it as a homicide.”
Burgess said she has long been worried about her neighbor’s safety, even trying to offer her advice and support on Saturday.
“I had concerns all this time because I saw things,” she said. “One of the things that really shakes me now, when I gave her my advice, she says she has a baby, and she says ‘Even my baby says I’m a fool.’”
Officials said the infant is now in the care of the Department of Children and Families.
