A resident of a cramped Dade City, Fla., retirement home is suspected of beating to death two sleeping residents with his walking cane and injuring four others in a room-to-room rampage, police said. There apparently was friction between Henry Thomas, 88, a retired fruit picker and sometime junk collector, and other residents of the Reflections I house, said Dade City Police Chief Phil Thompson. Thomas was charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths.
