The news broke across South Florida at the start of the evening news hour. At 7:50PM, he was declared dead at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center. In the aftermath, The Miami Herald hastily fired Jim DeFede. Frank Alvarado's Miami New Times cover story "Tales of Teele: Sleaze Stories" become one of the scapegoats for Teele's public suicide.
