A Florida woman is facing charges after a bizarre incident in Fort Myers, in which she’s accused of demanding sex from a neighbor, followed by an unsolved killing.
According to court documents, 49-year-old Lori Leanne Quinn is facing a battery charge after she allegedly grabbed her neighbor’s face while demanding sex from him. The incident happened Tuesday morning after Quinn made the unwanted advances after inviting the man to her house.
Police say the victim claimed he refused her advances and left, and thought the behavior was inappropriate but dismissed it.
“Lori then used both hands to grab [victim’s name redacted] by his face and attempted to turn his head,” police wrote in the arrest affidavit. “[The victim] pulled away from Lori, told her she was a ‘f—ing weirdo,’ and left her residence.”
Later that day, the victim, who lives on a boat with his girlfriend near the defendant’s home, said he spotted Quinn riding her bike near his home. He also said he heard a strange noise near his boat and when he went to investigate, he found his girlfriend’s grandmother stabbed dead inside the residence.
According to court documents, Quinn was first spotted at the front area of the victim’s home between 3:30 a.m. And 3:45 a.m.. When he went to check, the victim said he noticed the front door unlocked; he then spotted Quinn through a window in his living room.
This investigation is now considered a homicide. We can confirm a stabbing. The investigation remains active.

The victim’s girlfriend, identified as “Lori” in court documents, told Quinn to leave and that it was not her home, while the victim reiterated the statement and told the defendant to leave. The pair then left to check on the grandmother, who they thought had been asleep during the ordeal.
“As they were exiting, [redacted] told Lori her grandmother was asleep in the home, and she did not want to wake her,” the affidavit read. “Lori left the property and returned to her residence.”
After discovering Lori’s grandmother deceased, the couple contacted 911. First responders declared her dead at the scene.
Quinn is not currently charged in connection with the grandmother’s death. She remains behind bars on a $100,000 bond in Lee County.
Law&Crime reports that Quinn has been arrested at least seven times in Lee County, for offenses ranging, in part, from resisting an officer to driving on a revoked license.
