A Florida man allegedly beat his grandmother to death with a hammer and then called a housekeeper to clean up the bloody crime scene
A Florida sheriff’s office arrested a “blood-soaked” man after he allegedly struck his grandmother with a hammer and seriously injured his grandfather. Police said they caught the suspected killer after he asked his housekeeper to clean up the bloody crime scene.
Anthony Michael Corrado, of Naples, Fla., has been charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault of a person over 65 after he went to his grandparents’ home and brutally hit them with a hammer.
The Collier County Sheriff’s Office said Corrado’s grandparents obtained an active protective order against their grandson, but did not explain the circumstances of the restraining order.

Police said Corrado called a housekeeper on Wednesday, May 17 to help him clean a house. When she arrived, she was greeted by a “blood-stained” Corrado, police said.
The unidentified housekeeper told police the 34-year-old led them to a bedroom where the elderly victim lay dead. The “quick-thinking” housekeeper quickly hatched an escape plan and told Corrado that she needed to get cleaning supplies from her car.
As she left the apartment building, she made her way and stopped an officer in his patrol car nearby, police said.
Officers immediately called the home, where they found the bodies of the elderly woman and another victim. Corrado’s grandfather was wrapped in a blanket in another room and suffered severe head injuries.
