Alleged Murder-Suicide in Tamarac Leaves Three Children Orphaned

When you walk up the aisle and say til death do us part, the last thing you think will happen is that the person to whom you are pledging your love and dedication will actually be the person who kills you. This all too common nightmare of a domestic murder-suicide occurred in Oakland Park’s neighboring City of Tamarac.  39 year old male Clody Sylverne, now deceased, is suspected of having killed his wife and the mother of his three children as well as his mother-in-law last night, December 12, 2020. Both of the deceased women’s names are being withheld.

BSO responded to a call that came in at 7:14AM. When they arrived at 9701 NW 83rd St in Tamarac, deputies proceeded to establish a perimeter and rescue the three children, now orphans inside. Through a bedroom window deputies pulled the children of 4, 8 and 11 years old out of a window. They were assessed for physical injuries and taken to a safe location.

Three People Pronounced Dead

SWAT entered the residence where they found Sylverne. It is not clear if he was already deceased when they entered. Living In Oakland Park is working on finding out more details regarding his death. One of the women was treated and transported by air to North Broward Health and was later pronounced dead.

BSO detectives are still investigating the cause of the murders. Living In Oakland Park has inquired about the children and who is taking care of them since they lost both of their parents and a grandmother yesterday. We will publish any information about how you can help them so please stay tuned to for more details.

Update 12/14/2020 – The children have been reunited with family. No information has been furnished regarding any fundraisers.
