A 34-year-old Florida man is accused of killing an elderly woman, then calling housekeeping to help tidy up the scene.
The victim reportedly had an order of protection against her alleged killer, Anthony Michael Corrado, who’s also accused of severely beating an elderly man Wednesday at Golden Gate Estates in Collier County, Fla.
“Detectives said that around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday Corrado called a housekeeper to help him clean up a residence on 16th Street Northeast,” Collier County Sheriff’s Officers wrote on Facebook. “When the housekeeper arrived, a blood-stained Corrado led her to a bedroom where the female victim was located.”
The frightened housekeeper reportedly told Corrado she needed to run to her car for cleaning supplies, then drove off and went in search of Collier County police officers.
“Deputies immediately responded to the residence where they located the deceased female,” police said. “They found the male victim in another room wrapped in a blanket with severe head injuries.”
Law enforcement officers said they also discovered a bloody hammer in the residence, where there was blood on the walls and floors. Corrado, who was released from prison last year, had blood on his clothing when he was arrested, according to cops.
The male victim was helicoptered to a trauma center.
Corrado, of Naples, Fla., is charged with second-degree murder and aggravated battery of a person older than 65.
