“Any death in our community is devastating, but it is especially tough to deliver the news that a loved one will not be able to join their families on a holiday,” Sheriff Mike Prendergast said in a statement. “This is an ongoing investigation. We will release more information as it becomes available. However, thankfully, the men and women of the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office who serve this county 24/7 have secured a suspect and ensured public safety.”
