A Sanford police officer found an 18-year-old woman shot and killed in a car in a parking lot at Coastline Park Friday night, according to a press release.
The officer was patrolling the park, located at 900 West 9th Street, around 11:20 p.m. and saw a vehicle backing up into a parking lot that appeared to be running, Sanford police spokeswoman Bianca Gillett said. In the driver’s vehicle was a deceased woman, later identified as Kaylin Fiengo, who suffered an apparent gunshot wound.
Fiengo planned to meet someone in the park, Gillett said. Gillett said the murder appears to be an isolated incident.
“The futility of this kind of violence is infuriating,” Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith said in a statement. “Kaylin was a young mother who had her whole life ahead of her. This violence and destruction will not be tolerated in our community. I am confident that our residents will work with us to find the person responsible for Kaylin’s death.”
