Business Expanding

Man beaten to death in random attack near Tampa had been expanding his Maine business to Florida

A man who was killed in a violent, random attack near Tampa last week was from Maine and had spent time in Florida in recent years expanding his business to the Sunshine State, according to his daughter.

Police found Jeffrey Chapman, 49, just after midnight last Friday near 719 Mandalay Avenue in Clearwater Beach, Florida, a quiet, residential area west of Tampa, according to Michael Walek, Clearwater Police Department’s deputy chief.

He appeared to be riding a bicycle when he sustained blunt force trauma to his head and upper body, Walek said in a press conference on Oct. 21.
