BROOKSVILLE (FOX 13) -

Deputies in Hernando County have arrested a man after a body was found dumped in the Withlacoochee State Forest.

The victim was identified as 22-year-old Darius Octivan Hampton. Investigators say he had multiple gunshot wounds, and they believe his body was dumped there Wednesday night.

Someone called deputies to tip them about the crime. That brought them to the Talisman Estates area.

Daniel Brunette, 33, was arrested. They say he confessed and he's now charged with second-degree murder.

Investigators say Brunette told them he and Hampton got in an argument about how to rip off drug dealers.
