Search continues for suspect in Seffner double murder

Posted: Updated:
SEFFNER (FOX 13) -

Lonzel Davis lives right across from the mobile home where 23-year-old Josh Deas and his roommate, 34-year-old Ken Simmons were beaten to death.

"The police were out here. I closed my windows, shut my blinds, I just felt sorry for the people," Davis said.

Josh's mother Karen had not heard from her son in a couple of days and came looking for him around 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Parsons Village Mobile Home Park in Seffner.

The property manager let her into the mobile home, revealing the horrific scene inside.

"I had my window open and I heard his mom screaming and I thought why is this woman screaming? And it caught me off guard and when I see the manager come down and the look on his face, I was like wow!" Davis said.

Lonzel could not mistake the look and what that meant.

"I called my sister and I said man, I bet they found a body in there and she was like how do you know? Because of the reaction from the people," Davis said.

Investigators spent all day Monday looking for finger prints, looking for clues or any evidence that might lead them to the killer or killers.
