OKEECHOBEE, Florida — An unhinged Florida man admitted to cops that he killed a woman who spurned his advances and then had sex with her corpse.
Christopher Shows, 21, was charged with the gruesome Dec. 7 slaying of Amanda Suarez, a 25-year-old mother of four who was attacked inside her Okeechobee home.
“In his confession, it was just he wanted to know what murder was about. Unfortunately, it was no rhyme no reason. He just wanted to know what murder felt like,” Okeechobee Undersheriff Noel Stephen, told WPTV-TV.
The station reported that Suarez’s 2-year-old son was inside the home at the time she was killed.
Police say the bloodshed unfolded when Suarez allowed Shows, who was dating her cousin, into her apartment. They say once inside Shows made sexual advances toward Suarez towards her. When she rebuffed him, he went to his truck, grabbed a .22-caliber rifle and shot her in the back as she tried to run out of the house.
Cops say Shows then dragged her into the kitchen where he had sex with her body.
Police caught up with Shows after they were able to track down her missing cellphone which had been dumped outside a church. On it, they found a photo of Shows taken just 30 minutes before Suarez’s slaying.
Shows has been charged with first-degree premeditated murder, armed burglary, desecration of a body, attempted sexual battery, grand theft and tampering with evidence.
Suarez’s children have been placed with relatives.
