of a Gay County man found beaten in a parking lot west of Lake Worth. James Stidfole, 45, a printer from Orange Park, died Saturday at 8 p.m. in Doctors Hospital near Lake Worth. Police said he was beaten and possibly robbed, then thrown from his van by three people he met in a bar that morning. According to investigators, Stidfole met the suspects, a woman and two men, at 8 a.m. Saturday Saturday in Harry's Open Door Bar on the 1900 block of North Dixie Highway in Lake Worth. Witnesses told detectives that the three suspects, suspects, who said they were from Massachusetts, left the bar with Stidfole at t p.m. Detectives think the three suspects were riding riding in Stidfole's van when they pulled into a parking lot at the Barnett Bank office near 10th Avenue North and Congress Avenue. There, they beat Stidfole and tossed him from the van about 2 p.m. Two of the suspects drove off in the van while the third fled on foot, detectives said. The van was recovered Sunday afternoon at Woodhaven Plaza at Forest Hill Boulevard and Kirk Road, west of West Palm Beach. Investigators said Stidfole died of a blow to the head, but are not sure whether the fatal blow was delivered before or after he was thrown from his van. David Enscoe
