A Florida man died in a freak accident over the weekend when a window of the home he was allegedly burglarizing slammed down on his neck.
Jonathan Hernandez, 32, was alone when he climbed through a window at a home in Lehigh Acres, about 15 miles east of Fort Myers, according to the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
The window slammed down on Hernandez's neck, leaving him dangling in the air until he strangled to death.
Hernandez's family disputed law enforcement's account of the freak accident. They claim Hernandez was not a burglar, and that his death is suspicious.
His fiancée, Patricia Duarte, said the family was surprised by law enforcement's claim that Hernandez was a petty criminal who died in the commission of a burglary.
"Soon as I got there I'm like, there's no way. This isn't what happened," she told NBC2 News. "I just need something to be done the right way. I need a proper investigation. I need the actual truth to come to light."
But Lt. Russell Park, spokesman for the sheriff's office, said police found the convicted felon dead at the scene. Park said the window that Hernandez was climbing through "unexpectedly" slammed down on him and pinned him, "keeping him suspended in air" for some time until he died.
The family created a GoFundMe page for Hernandez's funeral expenses.
