Man Fatally Stabbed While Biking Cross Country On His Way To Propose

Kevin Adorno (28) was travelling on bicycle from Conneticut to Florida in order to propose to his girlfriend. Adorno was only 20 miles away from his final destination when he was fatally stabbed by a homeless man outside of a McDonald's.

On Monday, he stopped at the resturaunt to charge his phone and grab a bite to eat when homelessman Rene Herrera Cruz (59) mistook Adorno's cell phone conversation for a planned attack. In Cruz's mind, Adorno was talking with people who wanted to kill him. So Adorno attacked first, stabbing Adorno in the arm and chest with a 12-inch knife.

Adorno's girlfriend had planned to fly down to meet her boyfriend and finish the ride together. This is also where Adorno had planned on proposing. Police found the engagement ring in his pocket.

Adorno's friend told the press that Kevin was "just a pure soul as charismatic as anyone could ever be, smile from ear to ear always generous." . 

"Just a really good guy."

The homelessman who confessed is facing first-degree murder.

A lot of homeless people are in that condition because they have some sort of mental issue that does not allow them to operate in a functional society. This is just a really sad story, and I feel horrible for the friends and family of this guy.. damn.

This is what happens when liberals close down all the mental institutions.  We gotta round up these nut jobs so that the streets are safe for sane people.

I can't believe this story even made the news!  I mean, there wasn't even a gun involved.  People don't care if people are murdered with a knife!  

Hey, the old testament called and it wants it's method of murder back.

@Macgyver56 You say that obviously believing we have a functional society, it is anything but...

@Bobaslaw No, she has her eye teeth, that's what a full set of teeth look like, I'm guessing you had braces and had yours removed, and likely know many white kids who've all had braces.

@Dejected-Head Homeless people don't have guns. They can neither afford one or need one to protect their home.

@Llnkn0wn @Dejected-Head For all we know he was a released mental health patient who a hospital couldn't afford to take care of again. Perfect example of where our priorities might be wrong.
