The man arrested for harassing and stalking Mayor Scott Brook was acquitted of murdering his girlfriend in 1991.
On May 14, Neil Darren Rosen, 55, of Parkland, was reportedly enraged by Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook, a family law attorney, representing his estranged wife in divorce proceedings. Brook said he feared for the safety of his staff, staff, himself, and his family.
This wasn’t the first time Rosen was arrested. In August of 1991, Rosen’s girlfriend Michelle Davis, 26, received threatening messages from Rosen before she was smothered to death with a pillow in her Weston Apartment.
Rosen was charged with Davis’ murder the following year. However, despite the threats and evidence that Rosen had confessed to another girlfriend about details of the murder before they were made public, a jury found him not guilty.
Just four months after his 1992 trial, he was arrested for aggravated stalking with menacing telephone messages to his ex-wife.
“I’m going to suck your blood. You better move. You better do something. You better go to church and pray that I don’t kill you,” he threatened her.
Divorced in 1991, Rosen was extradited from Brooklyn to stand trial in Fort Lauderdale.
Rosen, who once lived in Coral Springs, pled guilty, and one of the conditions of his probation was that he left the state. He was immediately flown back to Brooklyn; however, he violated those terms months later and was ordered to spend 30 days in jail and leave the state again.
