The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a double homicide investigation in Riverview.
Just after midnight, deputies were dispatched to the 100 block of Pelican Creek Circle, where they discovered two deceased victims, outside a business, who had sustained upper body trauma.
At this time, detectives believe this is an isolated incident and there is no threat to public safety.
“Detectives are collecting evidence to try and determine what led to these deaths and who is behind the attack,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “Given that this crime occurred in an isolated area, in the middle of the night, finding witnesses will be a challenge, which makes it imperative for anyone who saw or heard anything, to please come forward.”
Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office at (813) 247-8200.
