A man wanted for questioning by Miami Police stabbed himself in the abdomen right after Sheriff’s deputies located him today on Big Coppitt Key.
33 year old Roy Blanco was with a woman believed to be his mother at the time of the incident, just before 3 p.m. She took an unknown number of pills and was taken to Lower Keys Hospital. He was going to be airlifted for his injuries to a Miami hospital but lost consciousness and stopped breathing just prior to being loaded on to a trauma helicopter. He was rushed to Lower Keys Hospital where he died.
The Sheriff’s Office has notified Miami Police and they are on their way to the Keys.
