TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Police have released the name of a suspected burglar who died after he ran from police and into a pond west of downtown Tallahassee over the weekend.

The Tallahassee Police Department has identified the deceased man as 33-year-old Juan Miguel Esteban Carrillo Leyva.

Police responded to a reported burglary in the 600 block of West Virginia Street in Tallahassee shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday.

Officers say they were speaking with the burglary victim, when the victim saw the suspect and pointed him out to authorities. When officers attempted to stop the suspect, they say he ran to Carter Howell Strong Park on West Georgia Street.

Police say after unsuccessfully attempting to taser Leyva, he dove into the pond at the park and began to swim away from the shore, ignoring police attempts to persuade him to return.

After authorities could not find Leyva by boat, deputies with a Leon County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Dive Team found his body around 3:30 a.m. He was about 40 feet from the shoreline and eight feet under the surface, according to authorities.

Leyva’s official cause of death will be released pending the results of an autopsy.
