A Florida college student has tweeted and Snapchatted his was through the murder scene of his supposed housemate’s ex-partner, labelling the death as “inconvenient”.
On Monday, February 13, 26-year-old Jose Ricardo Ortiz III was found dead by one of his housemates, having received a fatal gunshot wound to the head, the Gainesville Sun reports.
Ortiz was murdered by 24-year-old Katherine Jean Tonner, a woman he had been living with and dating for over a year. The couple had broken up a week prior to his murder but were still living together.
Following the murder, the Gainesville Sun reports that Tonner phoned local police, saying “I shot him in the head” and “I never meant to hurt anyone.” She was arrested shortly after the call and is being held in jail.
Having been out of the house at the time of the murder, Twitter user @chaserojo was reportedly alerted to the murder via police; news he quickly shared to Twitter.
"So um..... just found out my roommate murdered her boyfriend in our apartment..." he tweeted on Monday.
"Just found out from an ivestegator [sic] that she wrote "death" on the calendar in our kitchen and none of us noticed it."
He then shared images of the outside of what he says is his townhouse cordoned off with police rope, evidence tape inside the apartment, and Ortiz and Tonner's bedroom door. The last image was captioned, "oomf was murdered in that room 2 days ago."
Another image followed shortly after, this time showing a wall within the house. Written across the image was, "THE F*CKING BULLET HOLE."
