Sausage saga continues after meat mysteriously falls onto family’s roof

The sausage surprise saga endured by the Adair family of Deerfield Beach has got people talking.

It was on July 15 that 15 pounds of  Italian sausage and pork chops make it to their roof at 4 a.m.

The story catapulted itself all the way to central Florida where the owner of Fussell’s Frozen Food confirmed that he packed the sausage and sent it to William Land Service in  Central Florida back in January for the owner’s personal use.

“It had to come from his freezer,” Jimmy Fussell said.

But when Local 10 News reached out to Williams Land Service, a spokesperson said that they aren’t sure how the meat ended up on the Adair family’s roof and have dubbed the incident the “mysterious Miami meat shower.”

The full statement reads as follows: “Williams Land Service has been providing quality land management options, in the South East Region, for over 30 years. We have not yet ventured into air mailing meat, but if we do, that will be the day pigs fly. However, we are dedicated to providing great service beyond our customers.

“We have tracked down the source of the Mysterious Miami Meat Shower. Williams Land Service, Inc. in Myakka City, FL, requested the meat delivery from Fussell’s Frozen Food, Inc. We strive, every day, to meet the expectations of our customers, and if needed, we will solve some mysteries too.I hope this brings closer to the great Miami Meat Shower Mystery.”

Local 10 News viewers did try to crack the mystery.

Some suggested that the Federal Aviation Administration be contacted about the meat. One person guessed that it was all part of a prank, that someone wanted to see how far they could through a bag of meat and it ended up on the roof.

Another viewer blamed the  hotdog cartoon character from Snapchat.

Even with the predictions, the mystery about the falling meat continues.

Whether it fell from the sky, was dropped by a tornado or shot from a slingshot, one thing is for sure, it catapulted this family in the spotlight.

The Adair family is set to appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” at 11:35 p.m. Wednesday.

15 pounds of frozen Italian sausage crashes down on family’s roof

A South Florida family is perplexed after recently waking up to a loud thud, only to find that the mysterious sound was several packages of frozen Italian sausage.

“It was like thunder, and it awakened me out of a sleep,” Travis Adair said. 

Adair said he and his family were awakened Saturday morning by a loud thud on the roof of their Deerfield Beach home.

“We got up, found two packages of sausage on the side of the yard, and then we were like, ‘We got to go on the roof and check and see if we find more of this stuff,'” Adair said.

Sure enough, there were three more packages of Italian pork sausage.

A total of 15 pounds of Italian sausage was found in bags marked William Land Service, a land-clearing company in Alabama.

The homeowners were baffled about how the sausage ended up on their roof, so their son, Austin Adair, called the company.

“I called them and the guys probably thought I was crazy,” Austin Adair said.

He even sent them pictures of the sausage but has yet to hear back.

In the meantime, the family has been coming up with their own theories.

“I thought possibly it had fallen from a plane or had to do with a drug deal or something,” Austin Adair’s mother, Jennie Adair, said. “Possibly North Korea with a sausage missile or something.”

Whatever the reason, the family said they would really like to know.

“I would love to know what happened, because it is so, so odd,” Jennie Adair said.

If anyone knows where the sausage might have come from or had a similar experience, please email [email protected]

BSO seeks teen who pulled fire alarm at Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort

The Broward Sheriff’s Office is searching for a teenager who they said pulled a fire alarm inside a hotel in Deerfield Beach.

The incident was reported just after 12:30 a.m. June 14 at the Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort at 2096 NE Second St.

Authorities said security cameras captured a group of teenage boys entering the hotel through the lobby and roaming around aimlessly for several minutes.

Deputies said the group made their way to the back of the hotel and left through panic bar exit doors.

As the group left, one of the boys stepped back inside and pulled the fire alarm, deputies said.

The hotel was evacuated, and Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue crews responded to the hotel.

Authorities said the teen who pulled the alarm was wearing a yellow shirt, which at times he had pulled up above his head.

Anyone with information about his identity is asked to call Detective Andrew Gianino at 954-571-4597 or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.

Mother says teen accidentally shot himself at Deerfield Beach gun range

A South Florida woman said her 14-year-old son died Thursday after he accidentally shot himself at a gun range in Deerfield Beach.

The teen was identified by his mother as Vincent Colonna.

The shooting was reported about 2 p.m. Thursday at Gun World of South Florida at 1700 S. Powerline Road.

Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Gina Carter said the teen was airlifted to North Broward Medical Center, where he died at 2:42 p.m.

Carter said homicide detectives are investigating the shooting, which appeared to be a suicide.

But the teen’s mother, Joana Colonna, told Local 10 News that she knows that her only child wouldn’t commit suicide and said the shooting was an accident. She said to suggest otherwise has only added to his family’s grief. 

“Everything was in order, so no, he didn’t do this. It was an accident,” Colonna said.  

She said Vincent has been shooting with his father since he was 10 years old and said her ex-husband also believes that the shooting was an accident.

“Vincent has gone to the shooting range probably since he was 10 years old, so he knew about it,” Colonna said.  

She said Vincent’s father was with him at the gun range when the shooting happened and said her son showed no signs of emotional distress.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office told Colonna that she may request surveillance video of the shooting from homicide detectives, who retrieved it from the gun range.

Colonna said Vincent was looking forward to spending the upcoming Fourth of July holiday at a hotel and had an online chess tournament on Sunday.

“I know there was nothing wrong. I know that,” Colonna said. “Vincent was happy. He knew we were going to the hotel, we were going to go to the museum, everything. Vincent was a happy kid. No, he did not do this. Vincent did not commit suicide.” 

The shooting remains under investigation.

Vincent’s funeral is scheduled for Wednesday.
