 PCSO Detectives Arrest Reginald Enzor for Fatally Stabbing His Wife 


Polk County Sheriff's Homicide detectives arrested a Lakeland man, Reginald Enzor, after he fatally stabbed his wife, Radiah Craft-Enzor, on Sunday, January 2, 2011.

According to Radiah's son, he awoke just after 6:00 a.m. that morning in their home located at 1244 Melville Avenue in Lakeland, to the sounds of his mother screaming and ran into her bedroom to see his stepfather, Reginald Enzor, stabbing her with a large knife. The son, who was also threatened by Reginald, ran outside and called 911. 

When deputies and emergency personnel arrived on-scene, Reginald had fled on foot and 36-year-old Radiah Craft-Enzor was found with severe lacerations all over her body. She was transported to LRMC and rushed into surgery but doctors were unable to repair the damage caused by the knife wounds. She was declared deceased at LRMC.
