White van sought in Lakeland triple murder

POLK COUNTY, FL (WFLA) – Polk detectives are looking for a white commercial vehicle which was seen near the home where three people were found dead Wednesday.

The murders happened at 2314 E. Magnolia Dr. Three people were located dead inside the home and a fourth person who had been shot in the face and is in critical condition. The victims have been identified as David Washington, 23, Eneida “Stacey” Branch, 31, and Angelica Castro, 23. The victim in critical condition is 18-year-old Felix Campos. Washington and Branch were in a relationship, relatives confirmed.

“Those two young ladies and that young man didn’t deserve to die whether or not they were engaged in illegal conduct they should not have perished,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said

Friday Polk detectives released video surveillance that shows a white commercial van, newer model Ford Transit Connect. Detectives believe it may be the vehicle used by the suspects to flee the scene.

“We have a video clip of that van leaving the area of Magnolia street and we believe at this point in time that is our suspect vehicle,” Judd said.

The suspects are described as three black males with Caribbean accents.

If you recognize the vehicle or have any information about the murders please contact law enforcement.
