In the report The Florida Highway Patrol says around 12:10 a.m. Sunday, 28-year-old Joseph Charles Strickland of Weeki Wachee was driving westbound on Cortez Boulevard in Brooksville.
After he hit a person on a bicycle he then "allegedly packed the body into his car and drove it to the Dixie Lee Bait shop where he then hid the body out back.
He then called his buddies to help him push his car to the home where they lived saying he had hit a Deer. His roommate woke the following morning to inspect the damage and see that the driver had spray painted the damage. He at that time realized it was NOT a Deer the man had hit.
Troopers say the roommate’s call came in around the same time they found a human leg along the shoulder of Cortez Boulevard
Strickland had outstanding warrant out of Minnesota as well. He was charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving a death, tampering with evidence, no valid driver license involving a death, and no insurance 🤦🏻♂️
