Lake Placid man accused of stabbing former roommate in head, neck

LAKE PLACID, Fla. (WFLA) – A 35-year-old man is accused of stabbing his former roommate in Lake Placid on Saturday.

Highlands County Sheriff’s Office detectives are looking for David Neiderman.

His 54-year-old roommate told deputies that Neiderman had returned to their home on Pinetop Terrace at about 4:45 p.m. and used a long knife to break in the back door. He used the same knife and stabbed him multiple times in the head and neck, deputies said.
