 Double Homicide Investigation Continues 


“We’re looking for a Cold-Blooded Killer,” said Sheriff Grady Judd.
Autopsy results revealed today, Sunday, December 9, 2007, that the
Killer from the December 7, 2007, BP Station Double Homicide had
placed the gun directly against the heads of the victims. Surveillance
video revealed that the two men showed no resistance before they
were murdered.


“Our detectives are working around the clock and we need the
community’s assistance to catch this cold blooded killer who executed
two hard working men in our community before he kills again,” said
Sheriff Judd.


The PCSO, in conjunction with Heartland Crime Stoppers, is offering
a $12,000.00 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of the
suspect detectives describe as a black male with a medium build.
The investigation began Friday, December 7, 2007 after deputies
arrived to an alarm call at the BP Station, 6000 Highway 557, near
Lake Alfred, just off of Interstate 4. They found two victims who had been shot outside of the
building, and a third victim terrorized inside.


The store had closed for the evening, the clerk was inside and two employees were outside near the
marquee, changing the sign information. At approximately 9:00 pm a black male, wearing dark
clothing, and some sort of dark head covering, approached the locked door and shook it. The
suspect shot through the door and turned his attention to the two victims under a marquee outside.
After fatally shooting the two store employees outside, the suspect fled the area in an unknown
direction.


Analyzing the surveillance video, detectives found that the suspect is wearing dark pants that appear
to have a zipper from the cuff to the knee, on the inside of the pants, and similar to exercise or
athletic pants.


Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 863-533-0344.
