Family Offers Money for Justice

By Brandon Jennings

(Ft. Pierce, FL) – The reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or suspects responsible for the murder of Jean Mondestin has been increased to $10,000.

Mondestin was found dead in the driver’s seat of his black Nissan Pathfinder with a gunshot wound on March 9 at 8:09 p.m. at 2477 Atlantis Dr. near the Windover apartments.

The Mondestin family is offering $7,000 of their own money.

“We want to see if there is justice in America,” said Joseph Mondestin, the victim’s brother. "Where I come from (Haiti) there is no justice. The family is hurting.”

Detectives have received a number of leads; however, none of them has led them to an arrest.

Currently, the suspect being searched for is a black male, 5’8” tall and bald. He was clothed in a white jacket and blue pants when he was seen fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed in a light-colored, newer model Chrysler 300 "M" series. It is believed that the suspects may live in the Orlando or Fort Lauderdale areas.

If anyone has information that leads to the arrest of the person or persons who are responsible for the death of Mondestin, they could receive a reward in the amount of $13,000.
