Around 4:30 p.m. on March 26, officers were called to a home in Spring Hill to perform a well-being check, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said.
The call came in from a neighbor, who believed something was wrong since there had been no activity at the residence since the day prior, officers said.
Officers arrived at the house and entered the home. They made their way to the master bedroom, which is when deputies saw obvious signs of a struggle, officials said.
Once inside the master bedroom, they found the deceased body of an adult male.
Deputies continued to search the home and found the suspect, identified as Kristopher Charles Amore, 24, in a second-floor bedroom, police said.
Amore did not respond to police at first, so investigators feared that he was dead too. They checked on him, which is when Amore started talking with deputies, officials said.
He was taken out of the home in handcuffs and while speaking to detectives, Amore allegedly said he killed the person because he was “tired of dealing with him.”
