On December 8, 1992, German tourist Rudi Rohloff,  54, was shot to death while walking along a street with his fiancee in Fort Myers, Florida. Parademics were unable to save him, making him another statistic in a string of murders of foreign tourists in 1992 and 1993.  Heightened security at interstate rest stops, canceled travels to Florida and more law enforcement vigilance ensued, as well as a 20% drop in tourism dollars. By the fall of 1993, nine foreign visitors had been murdered in unrelated incidents, others were injured and many were indicted for their deaths. ..CONTACT Carla Hotvedt at SILVER IMAGE® Photo Agency and Weddings 352.373-5771 or
