Here is the latest press release from Haines City Police Department:
Ernst Cherizard, 38, remains at large in what is now a triple homicide. Six-year-old, Elizabelle Frenel, was pronounced dead at an Orlando hospital before 11 p.m. Saturday after suffering gunshot wounds to the temple, face and arm at the hand of Cherizard.
The girl was among three victims fatally shot before 7:15 p.m. Friday night at the Citrus Ridge Apartments in Haines City. Eli Junia Normil, 23, and Nicole Guillume, 48, were pronounced dead at the scene. Elizabelle is the daughter of Normil.
“Because of Cherizard’s cowardly actions — and they are nothing short of cowardly — a family now has to bury three members, including a young child who had her whole life in front of her,” Chief Jim Elensky said. “Our team is doing everything we can to bring this person to justice and help provide closure for this family through this absolutely horrific tragedy. Our thoughts are with them as we continue this investigation.”
Cherizard fled the scene Friday night in a 2011 burgundy Nissan Altima belonging to Normil. It has the Florida plate, GZN C82. The vehicle passed the toll at Boynton Beach on the Florida Turnpike just minutes after midnight early Saturday morning.
The Haines City Police Department has teamed with the U.S. Marshals to find Cherizard and bring him to justice. We are looking for the public’s help in finding and arresting the suspect.
We ask anyone with information that will lead to his arrest to come forward. To remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward now up to $5,000, call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-8477 (TIPS) or submit a tip via the web or cellphone at www.P3tips.com. Anonymity is guaranteed.
