Hillsborough Deputies Find 2-Men Dead, Valrico Murder Investigation Underway

VALRICO, Fla. – Detectives with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office are conducting a homicide investigation at an apartment complex in Valrico.

On Tuesday, December 22, 2020, just before 9:00 p.m., a neighbor called 911 after hearing gunshots. Deputies were dispatched to the 200 block of Switchback Loop, located within the Valrico Station Apartments, where they discovered the bodies of two men inside one of the units.

HSCO says that detectives are interviewing neighbors, possible witnesses, and are in the process of obtaining a search warrant for additional evidence. At this time, detectives are working to identify who is responsible for the deaths.

“We do not believe this was a random act and there is no indication of risk to public safety,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “However, we are in the midst of the holiday season and now families are left grieving a sudden and painful loss. This violence has a profound impact on so many lives and in order to ensure justice is served, those who know who did it, or have any details about the incident, must speak up.”

Anyone with information on this case is urged to call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.
