May 6, 2022 - FDLE Investigation Received in Titusville Police Use of Deadly Force

In response to recent media reports we can confirm that our office has received the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s investigative report surrounding the December 26, 2021, use of deadly force by a Titusville police officer resulting in the death of James Lowery (40). 

The role of the State Attorney in conducting our review is to determine whether a criminal violation of Florida law has occurred, whether any person may be held criminally responsible, and whether such criminal responsibility can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. Our commitment to justice is the fundamental and guiding principal in every such decision.
There is no timeline for completion and our office will conduct an exhaustive inquiry into the information provided by the FDLE, as well as pursue any investigative leads or information uncovered during that process. While the investigation is active and under review information contained within the FDLE reports related to this case is exempt from public record.
While our long-standing policy is not to offer public comment on open investigations or pending prosecutions, we felt it was important to confirm the review process is moving forward in a careful, thoughtful, and deliberate manner.
