All the proof– witnesses, surveillance footage, phone logs, presence of the victims blood, and more– pointed to a Lutz male named Robert Kessler. (Learn more about the evidence HERE.) Crone-Overholts had been staying in Kesslers house, supposedly a charitable act on his part after satisfying her at a McDonalds and discovering she was living in her automobile.
The 69-year-old was apparently living with his 8-year-old daughter– though the timing of that is sketchy considering he just got out of jail (his last stint of lots of) in 2013. The ladys mother has been identified as 34-year-old April Thompson (above, left), who apparently died of an unintentional drug overdose in September.
Were going to be sincere here. When we first found out the womans mom also passed away simply a couple of weeks prior to this near-stranger was welcomed into Kesslers house and after that killed, our coincidence alarm sort of went nuts. We suggest … the concept that this person would go from zero to dismemberment over night? In retirement age? We could not help wondering if we were getting the full story about Aprils death … We likewise have to keep in mind the striking likeness in between the two women– whats that about?

Now theres another factor to question.
During a pretrial detention hearing on Wednesday, prosecutors continued to argue to remand Kessler to custody– no bail, no leaving prison prior to the trial. Assistant State Attorney Scott Harmon made a shocking expose to boost the argument that Kessler was a threat to the community: there may be another victim! He informed the court:
And its not the victim.”
Whoa. He added:
” I would recommend to the court that alone reveals a neglect for the security of the neighborhood that now we potentially have two victims.”
If they think he chopped up simply one lady thats great enough reason to keep him away from the public. Could it be 2??
Is it possible this blood was from the mother?
Anyhow, well keep you up to date when authorities do lastly figure out where the other blood came from. Considering theyve fixed this much already simply from a leg, we anticipate well know more quickly.
What do YOU think took place?!
