Help solve murder of Geovani Castro in suburban (unincorporated) Lake Worth. Contact information for CrimeStoppers below.

Sun Sentinel breaking news editor/reporter Doug Phillips has this terrible news:

A 15-year-old boy is dead following a shooting that happened outside Lake Worth.
     Deputies were called to the 4200 block of Davis Road about 3 p.m. Monday and found the teen, Geovani Castro, shot.

and. . .

     Investigators ask anyone with information about the shooting to contact Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 800-458-8477 or download PBSO’s new “Connect & Protect” app for smart phones in order to provide information.

Very sad. There have been 79 homicides in Palm Beach County thus far in 2017. West Palm Beach has been the most severely affected by this senseless violence. Use this link to learn more.

Stay Anonymous. Cash Rewards.

“Every piece of information that comes into Crime Stoppers is examined by the appropriate law enforcement official(s). No tip is too small. Your tip may be the missing piece of the puzzle that helps to solve or prevent a crime.”

From beat reporter Kevin Thompson, more information on the murder of Jose Aguilar in the City of Lake Worth last June 17th:

LAKE WORTH — ■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■■■■ was watching “Orange Is The New Black” when he heard four gunshots in the early Saturday morning hours where he lives on North F Street in Lake Worth.

and. . .

     While ■■■■■■■■■■ was checking out the popular Netflix series, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said a man was shot and killed at 914 North F Street.

If you hear gunshots, immediately call 911.

That will log the time you call. What you’re watching on TV will not matter to investigators.
Use this link for PBSO District 14 headquarters. The address is 120 North G Street.

SCENARIO. You hear gun shots.
Here is what you do:

  • After your call to 911, write down everything else you remember right away.
  • Do not go outside to investigate!
  • Are you afraid of cooperating with deputies and detectives for fear of reprisal? Then stay completely anonymous and contact CrimeStoppers (see contact information above).
  • Go to the Neighborhood Assoc. Presidents’ Council website and learn more about “Make the Call” to PBSO.


NEVER confront suspicious persons yourself — let PBSO handle it — you DO NOT have to give your name if that makes you uncomfortable. But it’s a big help if you can provide descriptions:
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Clothing
  • Color and make of car
  • Direction they were headed, etc.
When you see or hear behavior that seems odd, suspicious or out of place, “Make the Call Y’all!”

Call 911 or contact PBSO at 561-688-3400.
