A Photographer from a foreign media organization took pictures from inside the apartment.

FBI agents cleared and secured the home about 5 a.m. Monday. Media gathered at the scene notified officers that the back door was open, Fort Pierce police spokesman Ed Cunningham said.

Fort Pierce police officers and Police Chief Diane Hobley-Burney arrived to find that someone had broken in through the apartment’s back door, Cunningham said.

He said there was damage to the back door, but he did not specify whether there was damage inside the apartment. It was not clear if anything was taken, he said.

“We don’t know who did it, ” Cunningham said. “We are handling it like a burglary investigation.”
