On Dec. 16, Vermont State Police worked with Collier County deputies in Florida to apprehend Jozsef Piri, 49, on a second-degree murder arrest warrant, WZVN-TV reported.

According to the Vermont State Police, Piri, a certified doctor at Physician’s Regional in Naples, is suspected of fatally shooting 44-year-old Boston truck driver Roberto Fonseca-Rivera on Nov. 1, 2019.

The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the head and neck and his body was reportedly found in his Katsiroubas Produce delivery truck on a road in Rockingham, Vermont.

Detectives investigating the shooting scoured surveillance video, GPS data and other evidence. They learned Piri, who lived in Connecticut at the time and was returning home from a property he owned in Londonderry, Vermont, was allegedly driving a silver 2018 Toyota Tundra that was spotted near Fonseca-Rivera's truck the day of the murder.

According to police, Piri, who did not know Fonseca-Rivera, was allegedly driving his vehicle in front of the victim’s truck shortly before the incident occurred.

Piri is expected to be extradited from Florida to Vermont.
