Description of Incident:
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives are searching for a woman wanted in connection with a Nov. 1 homicide inside a Pompano Beach apartment.
On Thursday, Dec. 20, a grand jury issued an indictment for Danielle Sachs, 33, for her participation in the death of Jeffrey Blaugrund. Through the investigation, homicide detectives determined Jeffrey Blaugrund, 70, was killed on or around Oct. 15. In the early morning hours of Oct. 15, Blaugrund picked up the suspect, Jonathan Forster, 27, and his girlfriend Danielle Sachs from a Wendy’s restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale and offered them a place to stay for the night. No one heard from or saw the victim until deputies responded to his residence Nov. 1.
That afternoon deputies were called to Blaugrund’s home after neighbors complained of a strong odor emanating from his apartment. After knocking on the door with no response, they solicited the management office to open the door. Deputies found the apartment had been ransacked, and Blaugrund’s body was discovered inside. Investigators believe the victim was killed during the commission of a robbery.
The Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office determined Blaugrund died of asphyxia and ruled the case a homicide.
Once in custody, Sachs will be facing one count of first degree murder. On Dec. 20, the grand jury also indicted Forster, who was arrested on Dec. 5, with first degree murder.
Anyone with information about Danielle Sach’s whereabouts or Jeffrey Blaugrund’s homicide is asked to call 911.
