Suspect arrested in homeless murders

Posted: Updated:

Police say they have the man behind a string of brutal attacks on the homeless in Pinellas County.

The arrest follows a series of attacks -- all on homeless men. Two of those victims have died. Forensic crews say the way all three were attacked is strikingly similar.

This morning, police arrested Myron Farley. Police say Farley, 32, shot two homeless men -- Brian Kennedy and Larry Schuff -- in the head near a Tarpon Springs homeless camp last month.

Kennedy passed away, and Schuff is still in the hospital in serious condition.

Just this week, Clearwater police became involved in the investigation. Police found the body of another homeless man, John Lloyd, on Monday, near Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard.

They say the way Lloyd was killed had some undeniable similarities to the Tarpon Springs case.

Farley is charged with the murder of Kennedy, the attempted murder of Schuff, and police say he's the main suspect in Monday's murder.

Police haven't pinpointed a motive, but they are working with FDLE to see if there more victims out there.
