COCOA, Fla. – Detectives are trying to locate two women who they say dropped off an unresponsive, dying man at the hospital and left without providing any personal information, according to the Cocoa Police Department.

Police said the two women arrived at Wuesthoff Hospital in Rockledge around 5:30 p.m. Friday to drop off Justin Allan Paulus, 28. He was pronounced dead at 6 p.m.

The women told hospital personnel that they were driving through downtown Cocoa when Paulus flagged them down and said he needed a ride to the hospital.

Detectives don't know if the women knew Paulus or if they have more useful information.

One woman is in her late 20s with dirty blond or brown hair, 5 feet, 2 inches tall weighing 125 pounds, with eyebrow and nose rings. The other woman is in her mid- to late 20s with purple hair and an eyebrow ring. She's approximately 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds.
