The nog was none too pleased that the victim had gotten into a fight with his drug buddies.
A Pensacola man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after authorities say he attacked a man and slammed his head into the asphalt, causing brain hemorrhaging that led to death.
Larry Raymond Moore, 27, was arrested Monday and charged with second-degree murder in connection to the death of 35-year-old Jeremy Beebe.
According to Moore’s arrest report, Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded Feb. 2 to a report of a man down in the 3500 block of Mobile Highway. They found Beebe with lacerations to his face and bruising on his body and transported him to Baptist Hospital with injuries that were initially believed to be superficial.
However, the next day, hospital staff informed law enforcement that Beebe had sustained life-threatening injuries and was diagnosed with a brain bleed.
On Feb. 7, Beebe succumbed to his injuries, according to the ECSO.
Before his death, Beebe told investigators he had been behind Brownsville Welding on Feb. 2 doing drugs with a group of men who became angry and punched him, the report stated.
The ECSO obtained surveillance footage from Brownsville Welding that showed Beebe walking across Mobile Highway in front of the business on Feb. 2 as a white Chevrolet pickup truck was parked a short distance away.
Moore got out of the truck and spoke to Beebe before chasing Beebe onto the road, catching him and body slamming his head into the roadway, the report stated.
“After body slamming Beebe, Moore proceeds to punch Beebe in the face two times causing Beebe’s head to hit the roadway with each punch,” the report stated. Beebe was left in the road with oncoming traffic as Moore ran back to the truck.
Moore was booked into the Escambia County Jail with a $100,000 bond, and county records indicated that he remained in custody as of Tuesday morning.
