Florida: CCTV captures men carrying dead body out of Airbnb

Three men were caught on camera carrying what appears to be a dead body out of an Airbnb.

On April 13, Xavier Johnson was gunned down inside a home he was renting from the holiday let company in St Petersburg, Florida.

Along with some other people the 29-year-old had been selling marijuana since they moved into the property on April 8th.

Five days later, at around 8.30pm, three unidentified people went into the home and killed Xavier, police said.

A short while later three men were caught on a doorbell camera carrying a body out of the property.

Two of the men are carrying the body at the head end and the third is holding the legs.

They stop for a moment once out of the door, seemingly to rest and so one of the men can hitch up his falling shorts.

Now Polk County Sheriff’s Office Homicide detectives are asking members of the public who can help identify the men to come forward, posting the doorbell footage online.

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office said: “Around 8:30 pm on April 13th, unknown suspects went inside the house, and shot the victim.

“These photos show three men we want to identify – we showed pics of the one carrying the cross body bag in 2 diff (sic) photos so that you can see his arm tattoo (it does not show in the photo where he has the bag).

“He is the one without any facial hair. Refer back to the video and you’ll see all three of them.”

Killing someone in Florida, where close to 100,000 of 21million people are in prison, is serious business.

Pre-meditated, first degree murder is punishable with either life in prison or execution.
