Three Bodies Found At Home In Brooksville In Apparent Murder-Suicide

By and on September 6th, 2013

Updated, 3:02 p.m.:  The Tampa Tribune is reporting sheriff Al Nienhuis has ruled the deaths a murder-suicide and identified the deceased.

The suspect was Jamil Etayem, 28, and the victims were Roseanna Sanson, 23, and Carter Sanson, who was nine months old.

Etayem formerly lived in Ohio and New Jersey, according to public records. He ran into trouble with authorities after moving to Florida, the Tampa Tribune reports:

On Aug. 20, deputies responded to the residence after calls came in of an “irrational subject” threatening to harm himself, and Nienhuis said law enforcement arrived to find a “calm” environment after a verbal argument. On Aug. 24, Etayem was booked in the Hernando County Jail on domestic battery charges, and bailed out by a family member the next day.

Original story: BROOKSVILLE — The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office says three bodies have been found at a home.

According to a news release sent Friday morning, a concerned citizen called deputies Thursday evening and requested a welfare check at the home, which is in the Hernando Oaks subdivision.

When deputies arrived, they discovered the bodies.

The crime scene is being processed and Hernando County Sheriff Al Nienhuis will make a statement later Friday.
