SHERIFF CARMINE MARCENO PRESENTS:
SEEKING CLOSURE, A COLD CASE PODCAST
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has released a new podcast: Seeking Closure where detectives discuss some of Lee County’s most notorious cold cases.
With hopes of finding new leads, this podcast will reach a wider audience and hopefully help to bring closure to the families of homicide victims in Lee County.
In this first episode, detectives give you an inside look into their case surrounding the death of David Comparetto. It started as an arson case and quickly turned into a homicide investigation when detectives found Comparetto’s charred remains in the trunk of a car in Lehigh Acres. A timeline of events was established, but the suspect responsible for his murder is still a mystery.
On September 13, 2002, at about 4:27 p.m., the Lee County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in reference to an unresponsive female at 350 Louise Avenue in Fort Myers, Lee County, Florida. The female was lying on the floor in the rear bedroom, bleeding from a gapping laceration to her neck. The victim also had a coaxial cable wrapped around her neck. The victim was identified as Sheila Joanne Foe, a white female born on October 22, 1956.
On August 15, 2013, at approximately 12:26 p.m., a man reported that he had discovered what he believed to be human remains in the area of Leah Court & Meadow Road, Lehigh Acres, Florida. The man was an employee of the Lee County Electric Cooperative (LCEC). Deputies responded and confirmed that the body of a deceased white male lay on the roadway inside Leah Court, an undeveloped cul-de-sac in a wooded area of Lehigh Acres. The decedent had several physical defects consistent with gunshot wounds; one in his head, several in his torso, and one in his right forearm. There was extensive facial damage consistent with animal activity, likely due to the vultures observed on and around the body. A fingerprint scanner identified the decedent as Kyle Byrtus, a white male born on May 17, 1988.
On February 5, 2015, members of the Tice Fire Department and Central District Deputies responded to a trailer fire located in the Tice area of Fort Myers. Fire officials met with the complainant, Peter Matthew Albritton, who resided in the trailer with Donna Chatterton. Albritton claimed Chatterton was not in the trailer when he returned home earlier, nor could he confirm if she was in the trailer when the fire occurred. The following day, Central District Deputies responded to the residence of Diane Bisram who requested to file a missing person’s report for her daughter, Donna Chatterton. Bisram was obviously concerned for the safety of Donna following the fire at her residence. Deputies completed a preliminary report and entered Chatterton as a missing person.
In this episode we will talk about the mysterious disappearance of Keri Anne Cefarelli. Keri Anne was a resident of North Fort Myers, Florida, and went missing on January 5, 2017. Despite extensive searches and investigations, there have been no concrete leads or clues to her whereabouts.
We will delve into the details of Keri Anne’s disappearance and examine the leads of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit. We will speak with experts and individuals closely involved in the case, in the hopes of shedding some light on what happened to Keri Anne and perhaps even bringing her home.
Keri Anne Cefarelli was born on December 1, 1976, and was a happy and loving young mother and fiancé. Despite her struggles with addiction, Keri Anne was seeking treatment and working hard to overcome her challenges. She had a close-knit family and a supportive community around her. On January 5, 2017, Keri Anne went missing, leaving behind her young son and fiancé.
On Friday, November 1, 2013, at approximately 3:58am, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in reference to a shooting.

Deputies arrived and discovered two victims: one victim with a gunshot wound to the right hand, and the other victim, Jaabin Robinson, a black male born on August 28, 1983, unconscious on the ground. Jaabin was pronounced deceased at the scene and a homicide investigation was launched.
