SARASOTA June 7th, 2011 at 6:39 pm - In the final moments of their lives, it now appears two British tourists shot dead in Sarasota came across a masked man (men) on the street of a Newtown public housing complex.
Court documents released Tuesday June 7th, 2011 reveal small but telling details about the April night the men were shot and about who detectives targeted with their investigation and why.
The police records, released after the Herald-Tribune filed legal action, state a witness saw two men chasing James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, in The Courts just before they were killed. Those men were then seen running from the area after the shots were fired, either by a witness or on video surveillance. One wore a red mask or bandana, the records show.
The documents also reveal that if the suspects planned to rob the tourists, they were unsuccessful. Cooper was still wearing his wristwatch, and had a cellular phone, digital camera and about $62 in his pants when police discovered the bodies about 3 a.m. on April 16. Kouzaris had $63 in his wallet.
Sarasota Police believe they have captured one of the suspects, 16-year-old Shawn Tyson, who was identified after detectives received anonymous tips, documents state, MORE FROM THIS SOURCE.
I Told You On May 5th That There Was A Second Suspect or Shooter in the Murder of British Tourists James Cooper & James Kouzaris
REAL DEAL OR HOAX..”I know a guy who was involved in killing those British tourists he was bragging a couple of days ago he said he was trying to score “Ice” and helped kill them”. The above text message came in to me on Monday May 2nd, 2011 at 6:27 p.m., it was one of 38 text messages that came in from “Candy” on May 2nd and May 3rd that followed up her first 3 text messages that initially came in on April 16th, 2011 from her cell 941-587-XXXX.
British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris were murdered Saturday April 16th, 2011 at about 2:56 a.m. in the “The Courts” section of violent Newtown Fl.
REAL DEAL OR HOAX, The cell phone number that sent me the above text messages “I murdered someone I am scared“ is from 941-587-XXXX, the area code covering Sarasota-Bradenton-Venice Fl, a trace of the number indicate that it belongs to a young female living in North Sarasota Fl.
“Candy” claims that there is a second shooter in the murder of James Cooper and James Kouzaris, “Candy” claims that the Brits were robbed so the Newtown thugs could have cash to buy more “Ice” (crystal meth). “Candy” claims she knows the name of the 2nd shooter and she sent me a name and a photo of a young black male.
“Candy” refuses to talk on the phone, she will only take text messages, she has refused to meet in person and now refuses to talk to the Sarasota Police Department. “Candy” claims she is too scared and confused and regrets ever contacting me, sorry girl, but if you are involved or have information on the murder of the two Brit tourists your time is running out, if it is a hoax I hope you end up with criminal charges.
All the information concerning ”Candy’s” cell phone number 941-587-XXXX and the information about a name and photo of a unknown black male were turned over to the Sarasota Police Department initially on April 20th and then again on May 3rd after I received the additional 34 text messages from “Candy” a nut case or is she snitchin on some Newtown thug.
