Body In Remote Pasco County Yields Murder Charges For Clearwater Man

A Clearwater man is facing murder charges after authorities say he stabbed another person and left their remains in remote Pasco County.

Deputies say they first became aware of the crime on February 13 when they were alerted to human remains in Trilby. They say the death was caused by stabbing, but few other details were offered at the time.

On February 26 a 43-year-old man was arrested by Pinellas County deputies pursuant to a warrant in Pasco County. Pasco County authorities confirmed that the man was the subject of an investigation in early May, and his transfer to the county to face charges in the slaying occurred on March 5. Pasco County authorities stated only that they established a connection between the defendant and the murder, offering no other details.

He was booked into the Pasco County Jail on March 3 on a single count of second-degree murder. The defendant continues to be held in custody in lieu of a bond of $750,000.

According to local media, the defendant has a criminal background that goes back 25 years. Charges against him over the years include DUI, other moving violations, drug possession, and driving with a suspended or revoked license. He has been arrested in Pasco, Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Orange counties per public records.
