Omar Best Collymore had the misfortune of having two women with whom he was involved suffer untimely deaths whilst in close proximity to him.
His girlfriend Angela Aguiar, 38, was a single mother of two and real estate agent originally from New York who was gunned down and killed at about 3:30 am. on Monday, June 30, 2008, in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
His wife Simone Campbell-Collymore, 32, an entrepreneurial mother of two was gunned down and killed along with Mr. Winston Walters at about 4 pm on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, in St. Andrew, Jamaica.
Two women, connected to one man, killed on successive days of the week, nine and a half years apart. All while Mr. Collymore was mere feet away. Miss Aguair was in the vehicle from which he’d just alighted to tie his shoelaces. And Mrs. Campbell-Collymore was approaching a residence where he awaited her arrival.

Under typical circumstances, there would be an outpouring of sympathy for Collymore, except for the fact that he is still a person of interest in the death of Miss Aguair and is currently in jail and charged in the death of Mrs. Campbell-Collymore.
And his losses keep piling up. On 06/05/2018, Wells Fargo Bank National Association initiated foreclosure proceedings on the home located at 3559 Orchid Drive in Coral Springs, FL. According to the Verified Complaint of Foreclosure, the mortgage with an unpaid principal balance of $192,266.27 is currently due for 1/1/2018 to present.
All summonses issued are to date unserved as Simone is deceased and Best-Collymore is on extended vacation courtesy of the government of Jamaica. The neighbors are undoubtedly relieved as dueling motions for restraining orders were filed by and against Omar Best Collymore over a period of time.
