Florida Teen Allegedly Followed Mother And Daughter Home Before Crawling Through A Window And Killing Them
Sage Curry, 19, is accused of stabbed the victims to death with their own kitchen knife in Largo, Florida.
A Florida teenager is accused of trailing two women home, crawling through their window at night, and stabbing them to death with their own kitchen knife, in what police say was a "random act."
Sage Curry, 19, allegedly told Largo police he followed the two victims to their house and climbed inside through a bedroom window around 2 a.m. Monday, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Oxygen.com. He then allegedly found "the sharpest kitchen knife he could find" and began repeatedly stabbing one of the two women, who was asleep on the couch.
When the second woman came to help, Curry allegedly attacked her too, stabbing her multiple times in the face and neck. He then allegedly rolled the body of the first victim off the couch and onto the floor, hoping "to make the incident look like an accident," according to the affidavit.
Curry was injured during the attack and went to a neighbor for help, according to the affidavit. The neighbor called police, who arrived to find both women dead in their home.
Curry was arrested Monday evening and allegedly confessed to the killings. He was charged with armed burglary and two counts of first-degree murder, according to online inmate records.
Curry had "no known relationship" to the victims, and the incident currently is "believed to be a random act," police said in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times.
Per Florida law, police have not released the victims’ names. They were a mother and daughter who had immigrated from Albania and lived in the neighborhood for many years, FOX-13 reports.
This incident has stunned those who knew Curry.
“I’d never think someone like this could do something like that. So just shocked right now,” Jordan Martin, who works with Curry at a local car wash, told WFLA.
Curry has been appointed a public defender, according to WFLA. However, the attorney’s name is not listed on online court records.
Curry is being held without bond, according to inmate records.
