Hacker stole identities of victims killed in Surfside condo collapse

Surfside, Florida – According to officials, the criminal is seeing the victims’ names in the news and then stealing the identities of those who were killed in the partial collapse of the Champlain Towers South condominium building in Surfside.
Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett said he is astonished and hopes that an arrest is soon made.
“(They) violated the rights of an individual, but worse than that, a deceased individual and a family that is grieving,” he said.
Families are urged to check on the credit of their loved ones to make sure they too were not targeted.
“It’s terrible,” Burkett said. “I can’t wait to put a face to these deeds right now, and I think all of South Florida is eager to see who would do something like this – what kind of person would do something like this. But I’m looking forward to our police department apprehending them, and they are out there looking. I wouldn’t want to be that person right now.”
At this time authorities have not released further details about the crime or disclosed which victims were targeted.
