Kevin Adorno and Elyse Fuggetta

Man killed on his way to propose to girlfriend

Kevin Adorno of Unionville, Connecticut, was on a bucket-list adventure, biking from Maryland to Florida. He planned to end his journey in Miami, where he was going to propose to his girlfriend, Elyse Fuggetta. But the graphic artist's journey was cut short on September 2 outside of a Vero Beach McDonald's -- and so was his life.

Witnesses say Adorno was on the phone outside of the McDonald's when a man attacked him with a foot long knife, then took off.  Rene Herrera Cruz, 59, a local homeless man with a long rap sheet, is now in police custody and has been charged with first-degree murder. According to cops, Adorno was on the phone with girlfriend Fuggetta when he was attacked, and she didn't hear an argument or a struggle. Also according to police, the suspect says he thought Adorno was directing the person on the other end of the phone to attack Cruz.
