Florida Man Charged with Murder After Killing Grandmother and Beating Grandfather with Hammer
Details of the Crime
A shocking incident has come to light where Anthony Michael Corrado of Naples has been charged with second-degree murder and aggravated battery on a person over age 65. The Collier County Sheriff’s Office posted about the incident on Facebook. Corrado allegedly killed his grandmother and severely beat his grandfather with a hammer. The victim’s name has not been released, but it is known that she had an order of protection against Corrado, who had been released from prison last year.
The Housekeeper’s Account
The crime was reported by a housekeeper who was summoned by Corrado saying there was a “real mess.” When the housekeeper asked about the elderly woman, Corrado replied, “She was gone.” The housekeeper was shown a blue tarp on a bedroom floor that appeared to have a body in it. She thought the person was breathing, but when she started to unwrap the tarp, she found the female victim “inside the tarp with a plastic bag over her head.”
Corrado told the housekeeper to stop and that she would get blood everywhere. He then asked her to help him disable the home’s security camera system. When the housekeeper said police needed to be called, he told her, “I’ll go back to prison.” The housekeeper said she needed cleaning supplies, but in fact drove away and summoned a passing sheriff’s deputy.
When the police arrived, the elderly man was wrapped in a blanket with severe head injuries. He was flown to a nearby trauma center. A bloody hammer was found in the kitchen of the residence which had blood splattered on its walls and floors. Corrado, who was also bloodstained, was found outside the residence. He was later arrested and jailed.
This is a horrific incident that has left the community in shock. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
