Around 10 p.m. on February 24, 1975, in Winter Park, Florida, a shotgun blast shattered the calm of a Monday evening. If the surrounding suburban residents in Winter Park Pines heard anything, they kept it to themselves. The following morning, when a carpet cleaning truck rolled into the driveway of 2911 Montfichet Lane, the result of the ominous noise from the night before was discovered. It was discovered by a crew of workers who came early to pick up invoices from Robert Harry Barkan, a self-employed man who ran his business from the ranch style house built in the early 1960s. An early riser, Barkan usually greeted the small fleet of trucks and the men spilling out of them, but that morning the front door remained closed and locked. The carpet cleaning crew heard dogs barking. Something was wrong with the front window, the kitchen window that faced the driveway. The men looked inside. They tried to break down the door. Then they called the police. The police couldn’t get through the front door either, so they went through the window. There they found a gruesome sight. Barkan had been shot in the face through the kitchen window, and he lay dead on his back on the linoleum floor. Beyond him, in the family room, the TV was still on, and a glass of soda, its carbonated bubbles flat, sat beside the recliner. With no physical evidence and no leads, the case quickly went cold and is unsolved to this day.
