Titusville man's death prompts murder investigation
TITUSVILLE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
Benjamin Wojenski was a 30-year resident of Titusville, described by many here as being one of the nicest individuals in this community.
Wojenski's body was discovered inside his home after police conducted a well-being check on Wednesday, because the 62-year-old hadn't shown up for work. They determined his death to be suspicious in nature and have launched a murder investigation.
"I would have never expected it in a million years, never would have suspected it," said Jeannie Hudson, a friend of the victim.
Hudson asked a police detective to give flowers and pictures to Wojenski's family. He was close with her family and recently left a voicemail on her phone the day before he was killed.
"Hi babe, it's me. I haven't heard from you lately, so I wondered what's going on. Hopefully you are all right. When you get a chance, give me a call," Wojenski said in the recording.
"He was hard-working, decent, really good person," said Hudson. "If you ask for the shirt off his back, he'd give it to you."
Police on Thursday served a search warrant to scour the victim's home for clues. They do not believe he was randomly targeted.
"It's a terrible thing, when people come and kill you in your own house," Hudson said. "It's really crazy."
