tilus-lebrunBoca Raton restaurant owner, Dimitrious Karaloukas, was stabbed to death Thursday night after he posted an employee’s picture on the Internet, according to a probable cause affidavit from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office.

The incident took place at Jimmy the Greek Taverna, located in the 8200 block of Glades Road, at around 8 p.m. last night.

Tilus Lebrum, 42, is charged with first degree murder. According to the probable cause affidavit Leburn said he killed Karaloukas, 61, “because he took my photograph on March 2 and posted it on the Internet.”

Another employee of the restaurant was also severely stabbed and is hospitalized in critical condition at Delray Medical Center.

According to the probable cause affidavit, deputies say that they received a call that a man dressed in a black apron, holding a large knife, fled the restaurant after the stabbing.

Deputies caught up with Lebrun nearby.

Investigators say that Lebrun told them through an interpreter that Karaloukas had taken a picture of him and posted it on the internet, and according to the deputies, Lebrun was upset about the photograph, “They need to learn how to respect people; I have three kids in Haiti. I know they will suffer but they will survive.”

Lebrun allegedly attacked Karaloukas “three time on the left side of his torso and once in the back.”

Karaloukas died a short time later.

Lebrun is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail without bond on first degree murder and attempted murder charges.
