COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.-- The Collier County Sheriff's Office is investigating a homicide in Immokalee.

"It's not fair," said neighbor Janie Castaneta. "I really hope if anybody knows anything (about the crime) it helps out the family. I know the community wants justice for this person. Even though we don't know him personally, we all feel like that."
