On Jan. 30, the Jupiter Police Department responded to a call that multiple gunshots were fired at an individual in the area of Villas on the Green, off of U.S. 1.

After the Jupiter Police failed to contact the subject, the Special Weapons and Tactic team was forced to enter the subject’s home. The team found two deceased individuals in the house, Arthur, 49, and Edana, 57, Horlbeck.

Horlbeck had fired gunshots at an individual in their neighborhood before the murder-suicide, but the individual was not injured. He later killed his wife before killing himself.

In Jan. 2018, Horlbeck made a post online threatening the Town of Jupiter’s mayor, Todd Wodraska. The post read, “I will go to the mayor’s office tomorrow and if I don’t get help with police and signals and all of the harassment I WILL KILL!”

“[Chief of Police, Frank] Kitzerow said it was likely Horlbeck didn’t know who the Jupiter mayor was, but that police had to take any threat seriously,” Wodraska said in a Palm Beach Post article.

Neighbors of Horlbeck heard the gunshots and reported what the incident.

“I heard the shots, I heard pops. It was scary because we didn’t know what it was,” Jacky James, a neighbor, told WPTV.

Members of the community said the neighborhood was outside trying to see what was happening.

“There [where] people all out on the sidewalk and the patrolmen were going back and forth around and kind of waving them back indoors,” Joe Ward said.
