Two Arrested For Sunday Night Homicide

April 29, 2013

Two people have been arrested in connection with a homicide Sunday night near the Pensacola Country Club.

Taikwan Keman Crosby, 25, has been charged with robbery and homicide,  and Damien Holt Shiver, 19,  has been charged with accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence.

Deputies responded to a burglary in progress call shortly before midnight in the 1300 block Wisteria Avenue. Neighbors reported a man that was allegedly trying to break into a 2006 Honda Civic.  Arriving deputies found James David Faucett, 60,  in the living room of the residence. Faucett was pronounced deceased at the scene by EMS.

The Honda Civic was located Monday morning in the parking lot of Kmart on Mobile Highway.

    I was a friend of James he went by David, I am in shock over this, he was very nice and always helpful and was harmless. It is important to remember him and not let the evil men take his memory of life away. Justice needs to be served. This county is spiraling out of control with violence,…..elected officials need to assist the citizens with safety.

    If the perpetrator was outside attempting entry into the Honda, and the owner was inside, dead on the floor, the point concerning LEO response time is moot.

    It’s a shame the victim was not able to exercise his/her 2nd amendment right.

    That Police substation is no longer in the same block. It is now between Warrington Fire Dept & Warrington Elementary on Navy Blvd. Still it is 1½-2 minutes away.

    With a police station in the same block, I doubt if the chase policy made much difference.

    I wonder if the time it took for Law Enforcemnt to arrive was hindered by the new chase/driving protocols that have been put on the ECSO? Hopefully this did not cause a individual to die simple to protect themselves from frivilous lawsuits.

    My prayers go out to the family.
