Former KATV'er Getting His Feet, Head, Wet in Florida

It seems former KATV'er Leland Vittert had quite an unusual confrontation recently while trying to cover a story. You'll find the text story below, you can watch the video HERE.

Some Orange County residents are still waiting for their loved one's headstones. Customers said the headstone maker has been hard to find since a suspicious fire at his business.

Channel 9 went to his last known address, but didn't get any answers. Instead, the person at the home threw a pitcher of water on WFTV reporter Leland Vittert.


The State Fire Marshal's Office is looking into the possibility that the owner of Caguas Memorials set fire to the building in December. A week before the fire, one customer paid nearly $2,000 for a headstone that was never delivered.

"God is going to judge him," said victim Cheryl Rayburn.

jealousy is funny!
i know this kid can be an ignorant brat, but he's farther than everyone in arkansas...i'm not defending the guy believe me, but if you're jealous just admit it. he's not in fayetteville/ft. smith or LR and he's probably making a bundle more than you

LOLOLOL Good ole Leland. That is hilarious and like the above poster said, It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. He pissed off just about everyone in the Little Rock market. God don't like ugly and he's not to crazy about pretty either. LOL

As someone who used to know Leland back in the day, it's good to see that his radiant charisma is still winning him friends all over.

I'm surprised they didn't show the 15 seconds following the clip, where he starts screaming "what a world, what a world!" and melts into a pile of hair gel.

Leland Vittert was reporting on my story. I appreciate all the work Leland did to get our story on the news. My family & I were ripped off by this headstone maker in Orlando Florida after I paid Orlando Cuevas, owner of Caguas Memorial $1909.00 for a headstone for my mother grave. He took my money, then a week later, he set fire to his own company for insurance money! Beware of Caguas Memorial! He has no heart. He will take your money after you are broken hearted from the death of your loved one. Message to Orlando Cuevas... I will get you! Keep looking over your shoulder! Your day is coming! You won't know when it will happen, but I will pay you back.!! Just like I said at my mother's grave side, "God will have the last judgement on you".
Thanks Leland for your help coving the story.
