MIAMI SPRINGS CONNECTION
According to a social media post via NextDoor, Frank Ordoñez has a brother, Luis Ordoñez, who lives here in Miami Springs.
Roy Ordoñez (one of Frank’s brothers), setup a Go Fund Me account to help support the little girls that were left without a father. Here’s what he posted on the Go Fund Me page:
my brother frank ordonez was killed by police officers on 12/5/2019, when two robbers hijacked the USP truck he was driving. They kidnapped my brother and took him on a high speed chase, when they came to a stop he was gun down like a criminal by the Florida police. he didn’t deserve to die the way he did, he was just going to work to provide for his two little girls, which he loved so much. which are now left without a father… frank leaves behind two daughters with the ages of 3 and 6. this go fund me account is raise money for a Lawyer, to cover funeral cost and to help his little daughters school cost. his oldest daughter Hailey sees a speech therapist which UPS payed a potion of. PLEASE SHARE AND MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF TRIGGER HAPPY POLICE OFFICERS. they could have killed many more people, could have been one of your loved ones. please don’t let my brothers death be for nothing. police need to be held accountable.
