The Orange County Sheriff’s Office, in Florida, is currently seeking Sean Petrozzino in connection with the double murder of his mother and father in their home. (story continued below video)
Nancy and Michael Petrozzino were found dead Tuesday morning. Orange County Sheriff’s deputies want to talk with their son, Sean Petrozzino, 30.
“Sean has been named a person of interest,” said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, Jane Watrel, “ We want to talk to him, and find out what he knew, to either rule him in or rule him out in this terrible tragedy.”
On Wednesday, the Sheriff’s Office released a surveillance camera image showing Sean in Orlando on Tuesday morning. He is missing both hands, and has two prosthetic legs, from a childhood illness.
Deputies believe he’s somewhere in south Florida, possibly the Jupiter or Coral Springs area, driving a red 2012 Toyota Camry, FL tag 112VZY.
Deputies have been trying to reach him since his parents, Nancy and Michael, were found shot to death.
Sean had recently moved back home, after living in Georgia. Michael worked for Disney and Nancy was a well-loved second grade teacher at Andover Elementary School.
Late Tuesday night, the principal called parents to let them know what had happened.
“I’m very sad to report that we have lost second grade teacher, Nancy Petrozzino. She died in her home today,” the recorded message said.
Grief counselors are on hand all week to help students and staff cope with the loss.
Deputies are asking anyone who has seen Sean Petrozzino to call them. They are calling him “armed and dangerous.”
