Florida man allegedly beat grandmother to death with hammer then called housekeeper to clean up bloody scene


A Florida sheriff’s office has arrested a ‘blood soaked’ man after he allegedly beat his grandmother to death with a hammer and seriously injured his grandfather. Police said they caught the suspected killer after asking his housekeeper to clean up the bloody crime scene.

Anthony Michael Corrado of Naples, Florida, has been charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault of a person over 65 after he drove to his grandparents’ house and severely beat them with a hammer.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office said Corrado’s grandparents had an active protective order against their grandson, but did not explain the circumstances surrounding the restraining order.

Police say that on Wednesday, May 17, Corrado called a housekeeper to help clean a house. Upon arrival, she was greeted by a “blood-stained” Corrado, police said.

The unidentified housekeeper told police the 34-year-old led her to a bedroom where the elderly, dead victim was. The “quick-witted” housekeeper quickly hatched a plan to escape, telling Corrado she needed to get cleaning supplies from her car.

Once outside the residence, she took off and flagged down a deputy in her cruiser a short distance away, police said.

Deputies immediately intervened at the home where they located the body of the elderly woman and another victim. Corrado’s grandfather was wrapped in a blanket in another room and suffered serious head injuries.
