Last week, Hernando County deputies put up an alert about a missing sex offender who they reported had cut off his ankle monitor and disappeared.
Yesterday, the man was found dead, with the Hernando Sheriff calling him the “victim of foul play”
We will continue to monitor this case to determine whether the registrant was the victim of a vigilante murder.
Registrants are reminded to always be vigilant and careful. Do not open the door to anyone you don’t know or are not expecting.
