The stabbing comes after a homeless man and a homeless woman were killed in January in two separate random shootings in Miami-Dade County but believed to be committed by the same killer.

Police were asking the public for help in solving the other murders that occurred in January.

Marie Louisma Noel, 60, was found suffering from a gunshot wound in a grassy area on Jan. 5 in the 1700 block of Northwest 28th Street. She died on the scene. 

Five days later on Jan. 10, 61-year-old Bradley Griffith was shot to death while sleeping under a tree at the intersection of Northwest 38th Street and 22nd Avenue.

On Thursday, police released surveillance video that they believe shows the man responsible for both murders.

The Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust issued a statement on Friday following the most recent homicide.

“There is no more heinous crime than bringing harm to any of the most vulnerable members of our community,” Ron Book, chairman of the organization, said in a statement.

He urged the public to “step up and protect people experiencing homelessness, and, in situations like this, we must help bring the person who committed this crime to justice.”
