Vicki Feeley, 65, was killed when she was violently attacked during a robbery attempt outside her home at Southwest 112th Terrace and 128th Court Saturday night. Feeley, a cancer survivor, was transported to a nearby hospital and died.
Undercover Miami-Dade police went looking a silver or gray pick-up truck, which homicide detectives believed “may have been involved in this incident.’’
A neighbor had told the Herald that Feeley, who recently became a grandmother, was returning from a trip to Publix and that surveillance video from a home in the neighborhood showed how a pickup truck was tailing her.

“The leads that they obtained were very, very credible,” Miami-Dade Police Department Director Juan Perez told CBS4, referring to the truck, which police told CBS4 was stolen.
On Thursday evening, detectives spotted a pickup truck matching the description in a Florida City trailer park off Northwest Third Avenue and Sixth Street. Police attempted to stop the truck, which barreled toward them, Perez told CBS4.
Police fired at the truck.
“What we do know right now is there was a violent confrontation where the suspect rammed one of the police vehicles here and potentially almost struck some of the officers, who were on foot trying to approach,” Perez told CBS4.
The murder suspect, who police have not identified, was air-rescued and transported to Jackson South Trauma, according to NBC6.
