Two men were found beaten to death in a Florida home when a person called to report the bodies, the sheriff’s office said.
A man was “hanging out” in the shed of an Orlando home on Jan. 27 when Jose Rafael Cantarero, 29, came out, according to an Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrest affidavit.
The man, who was not identified by investigators, said Cantarero told him he had just killed two people inside the home and asked for help because he “wanted dispose of the bodies,” the sheriff’s office said.
The man refused to help but was led by Cantarero into the house, according to the affidavit.
Inside, one man was on the ground, surrounded by a pool of blood, and another was suffering from “severe head trauma,” deputies said. Both were unresponsive and blood was running down the walls and floor, the sheriff’s office said.
The man told investigators that Cantarero had a hammer and began “playing with the human remains,” according to the affidavit.
Cantarero said, “This is what you get,” while using the hammer, the man told deputies.
“The witness explained that he believed Jose murdered the victims as revenge for filing charges against Jose in a previous case,” the sheriff’s office said.
Cantarero and the other man got in a car and drove to another house where Cantarero took a shower and changed clothes, the man told investigators.
Then Cantarero left armed with an AR-15-style weapon, according to the affidavit, and the other man called the sheriff’s office.
When officers arrived at the home, they found two men dead, according to the affidavit.
