In a tragic turn of events, the Niceville community is mourning the loss of a beloved food truck owner, Mike Ledford. The incident took place behind a CVS convenience store on February 9, leaving the community in shock.
A Life Cut Short
Michael Ledford, fondly known as "Sushi Mike," was just 42 years old when his life was taken in a brutal knife attack. The police discovered him in his truck, badly injured from what appeared to be a sharp-edged weapon. The suspect, 24-year-old Dylan Deschaine, was later found hiding in a gas station bathroom and taken into custody.

Ledford was a husband and father of three, known for his generosity, humor, and passion for food. He operated the My Ohana food truck, serving pan-Asian style cuisine that quickly became a local favorite. Ledford was weeks away from realizing a lifelong dream – opening his first restaurant, Post 20.
