This is extremely sad and disturbing. Specially in the suburbs.

How can anyone take a productive life and end it, it is senseless waste.

I feel strongly that the death penalty for crimes such as this one should be automatic. This will reduce the number of criminals and they will think 2 times before commiting the crime, it reduce the tax burden on hard working citizens and make the state a safer place to live a procutive enjoyable life.

Whoever they are, you can bet that they wanted to steal any metal, etc. to go sell elsewhere along with taking any of his funds. Just guess, who that breed of people might be! We all know that the allowance of certain people into this country have no morals when it comes to free money and a ride because they know they can get away with it. In their own home grown environment that they had escaped from, "They would have been executed on the spot".

I don't think SR 52 is Land O Lakes either. It may be Pasco County, but I don't think Land O Lakes goes up that far.

I have known Lee for many years and he was a kind & loving person. He loved racing, shooting pool the yellow beast race car& toll truck,rock'n roll music,etc. He would give you the shirt off of his back. He always carried a wallet full of money with a rubber band around it. I remember years ago he had told me his wallet was stolen or taken with a numerous amount of money in it He did not deserved what ever happened as he would have given you the shirt off of his back or money to help you out. Who ever did this I hope you have a such a thing as a conscious. Whether you are a man or women I hope you will come foreward. There are always clues and hopefully they will find you. If cats could talk which we know they don't, I'm sure they could tell us who you are. I hope with the DNA they have now they will soon have you.

Lee called me Frieda, I lived with Lee for many years and we remained friends..He loved long rides in the country, old car shows, old cars, the Moose lodge, D&D for friends and pool. He was honest and had lifelong friends. He played bones with Joe every week, lunched with Will,gabbed with the sat. junk yard gang. Lee loved woman but was always loyal to the one he was with.He was never violent and would go out of his way to avoid confrontation. I could go on and on but those who knew him will miss him as much as I will. FRED

Shay, the poor man was killed and all you can say is this is not Land O Lakes? I guess the Crossroads Sawmill doesn't know where it lives either. I can't find where the boundries are in print, but at the last Land O Lakes Heritage meeting the boundries were stated as Hwy 52 on the North, County Line Rd on the South, Veterans Hwy on the West and I275/75 on the East. MommaT, does this sound right to you?
My husband did business with Mr. Johns on occasion and was very sad to hear of this. The sad truth is that even in Land O Lakes there is a big problem with drugs. I'm sure whoever did this took Lee's life for their next fix.
