Aug man's death ruled a homicide; Investigators looking into dead roommate's vehicle

After the completion of an autopsy earlier today, Historic City News was informed that the body discovered on Los Robles Avenue by police Tuesday morning was 56-year-old James Henry Weaver of St Augustine.

About five hours later, deputies checking on Weaver after a friend became concerned found him dead inside from a gunshot wound to he chest, the Sheriff's Office said.

Investigators were never able to talk to Canard because he was killed in a crash on State Road 207 Monday night, just blocks from the home where his roommate was found. Canard was making a left turn onto Hastings Road when a motorcycle going quickly smashed into the side of his vehicle.

As for what exactly happened, detectives say their investigation is still ongoing, as they try to work out whether the death of Weaver's roommate is connected in any way.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers and sheriff's office detectives are working together to investigate Canard's auto and will conduct a forensic sweep of the vehicle. The auto rolled over after the impact, throwing Canard out. The motorcycle was also taken. Now the Sheriff's Office said it is examining Canard's vehicle and anything inside as the investigation continues.

"Given the facts behind the case, we are now focusing in on any connection between the two, and we have garnered no information that has provided us with a suspect or a person of interest", Mulligan said.
