Police: Key West liveaboard
raped, tried to murder woman
BY GWEN FILOSA
A Key West liveaboard
boater kidnapped, raped and tried to strangle a 27-year-old woman he invited to his boat
Sunday night, tormenting her for several hours and at one point throwing her cell phone
into the ocean, according to police reports.
Jeffrey Sundwall, 46, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, false imprisonment and sexual assault with a weapon or force on a victim 12 years old or older.
“She went unconscious twice and at one point begged the suspect not to kill her,” according to the arrest warrant. “The suspect told the victim if she struggled, she would die.”
Sundwall lives on a 34-foot cabin trawler
named Today in Key West Harbor near Christmas
Tree Island. He told detectives the woman consented to sex with him.
Friday, he remained locked up at the Stock Island Detention Center without bond, per the warrant.
The woman told police she was invited to the boat
, which Sundwall uses as a water
taxi to and from Christmas
Tree Island, also known as Wisteria Island and a haven for people who live on boats and the homeless.
Once on the boat, though, Sundwall came up behind her and put a “sexual restraint collar” around her neck and choked her with it until she lost
consciousness, according to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Becky Herrin.
“She said she woke from unconsciousness to find him raping her,” Herrin said. “She said he put a gag in her mouth so she could not make noise
. She said he held her for hours and continued to torture her. At one point, she says she was begging for her life and he told her if she struggled she would die.”
She also said Sundwall forced her to smoke crack cocaine, the arrest warrant stated. The Keynoter does not name alleged victims of rape.
A witness told the Sheriff’s Office that Sundwall runs the water
and he had called Sundwall for a ride to the island Monday morning, Herrin said.
“When Sundwall arrived to pick him up, the victim was with him,” Herrin said. “She told the witness she’d been raped and asked to use his phone
. She used the phone
to call the Key West Police Department for help.”
When Key West police arrived, both the victim and Sundwall were there. Sundwall allegedly possessed crack cocaine so he was arrested by and booked for possession of the illegal drug.
The Sheriff’s Office has jurisdiction over the harbor so detectives from that agency’s Major Crimes Unit responded. Their investigation produced a warrant for Sundwall’s arrest Wednesday.
