On June 10, 2024, a trag¬≠ic inci¬≠dent unfold¬≠ed in West Kendall, Flori¬≠da, as Odalys Ban¬≠croft, a 43-year-old hos¬≠pi¬≠tal direc¬≠tor, and her 4‚ÄĎyear-old son Theodore ‚ÄúTed¬≠dy‚ÄĚ Couto were shot and killed by Ban¬≠croft‚Äôs ex-boyfriend, Michael Andres Pine¬≠da Lozano, out¬≠side a Chase bank.

Accord¬≠ing to the Dai¬≠ly Mail, the har¬≠row¬≠ing inci¬≠dent was cap¬≠tured on the bank‚Äôs secu¬≠ri¬≠ty footage. Lozano, 41, pulled up in a lux¬≠u¬≠ry BMW SUV and opened fire on Ban¬≠croft and her son, who were inside their mini¬≠van at the dri¬≠ve-through ATM. After the shoot¬≠ing, Lozano turned the gun on him¬≠self, tak¬≠ing his own life.

Ban­croft’s broth­er, Michael Tru­jil­lo, revealed that the cou­ple had been going through a breakup, but he was unaware of any spe­cif­ic threats or fears. Ban­croft had report­ed­ly recent­ly obtained a restrain­ing order against Lozano.

The tragedy has left the com­mu­ni­ty shat­tered, with Jack­son Health Sys­tem, where Ban­croft worked as the direc­tor of reg­u­la­to­ry affairs, express­ing their pro­found grief. Pres­i­dent and CEO Car­los Migoya praised Ban­croft’s ded­i­ca­tion and the indeli­ble mark she had made on the organization.

The inci¬≠dent has also deeply impact¬≠ed Ted¬≠dy‚Äôs father, Vin¬≠cent Couto, who was present at the scene and was seen react¬≠ing to the tragedy as police tried to con¬≠sole him. Ted¬≠dy had just cel¬≠e¬≠brat¬≠ed his pre‚ÄĎK grad¬≠u¬≠a¬≠tion days before the shock¬≠ing event.

A GoFundMe page has been cre­at­ed to sup­port the fam­i­ly dur­ing this unimag­in­able time, as they grap­ple with the sud­den and sense­less loss of Odalys and Ted­dy. The com­mu­ni­ty has ral­lied to offer their con­do­lences and assis­tance to the griev­ing family.
