‘Blunt Force’ Hillsborough County Sheriff Investigating Murder

TAMPA, Fla. – At approximately 1:26 a.m. on November 27, 2020, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call about a man down near the intersection of Wilsky Boulevard and Drycreek Drive in Tampa. 

Upon arrival at the scene, deputies found that the man, a black male in his 20s, was unresponsive. He was later pronounced dead at the intersection.

An autopsy on the victim revealed his death was the result of blunt force trauma to the upper body. At this time, HCSO is investigating the death as a possible hit-and-run. 

Details surrounding the incident are limited.

“Just hours after the Thanksgiving holiday, this man suffered a very tragic death, and right now, there is very little information about what happened to him,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Our team of detectives is seeking the public’s assistance to help solve this case. I am urging anyone who may have been passing through the area to please contact us.” Anyone with information is asked to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.
