Tuesday afternoon the Pinellas County Sheriff's office reported that a 46-year-old man who had only begun staying at Safe Harbor, the facility for the homeless near Largo, was found dead on Saturday morning
Officials say Kevin McMullen, who had been registered at Safe Harbor only since August 18, was found to be "unresponsive" in the outdoor courtyard this past Saturday morning. When he didn't awake , Safe Harbor staff members were summoned. Staff members then administered CPR until paramedics arrived, Further attempts to revive McMullen were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead at 8:30 a.m.
In a statement, Pinellas Sheriff officials say the night before, McMullen was "acting out and disruptive" in the male indoor courtyard housing unit. That's when Safe Harbor officials (per their rules) "escorted" him to the outdoor courtyard to sleep. Needless to say it was a warm and humid night last Friday night.
