The body of a 45-year-old man whose autopsy revealed he was alive and well after he was killed by a woman who was also a forensic pathologist at the Orlando Medical Examiner’s Office, has been identified.
An investigation by the Orlando police has revealed the body of Dr. Jennifer Schmitz, an ex-pat with no criminal history, was found inside the man’s home on Thursday night, officials said.

My heart breaks for his family, the friends and loved ones who loved him.

She told reporters that her son had been in the Orlando area for the weekend and was on his way home.
“He would have been so happy if he could be here.
I am so grateful to the medical professionals at the OCME, for their diligence and thoroughness in their investigation and for their quick action to locate the body,” she said.
A family member, a friend of the family, said Dr. Schmitzes death is not a surprise.
Sandra Schmittz told the Orlando Sentinel her son was on vacation in Florida and was planning to fly home to Florida on Sunday.
She said she was told by his sister that she had called the police the night of the homicide.
