Investigators with the Punta Gorda Police Dept. have concluded that a convenience store clerk was shot to death before the store caught fire early on Nov. 1. The body of 18-year-old Kyle Farishian was discovered after firefighters extinguished the blaze that morning at the intersection of Bal Harbor Boulevard and Aqui Esta Drive. Farishian’s death was ruled a homicide early in the investigation, but the actual cause of death was not immediately known. 7-Eleven and Southwest Florida CrimeStoppers are partnering to offer a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible.
