    Search continues for person of interest in Seminole County death investigation

    CHULUOTA, Fla. ?

    The Seminole County Sheriff?s Office said it is investigating a triple homicide after two men and a woman were found shot to death at home in Chuluota.


    The Seminole County Sheriff's Office is searching for a person of interest in the case, identified as Grant Amato, 29. Officials said Amato might be driving a 1996 white Honda Accord with FL tag L1GH7. He is considered armed and dangerous.

    Deputies made the gruesome discovery Friday morning at a home on Sultan Circle, in the Pickett Downs subdivision, after the sheriff?s office was asked to conduct a welfare check on a man who didn?t show up for work.

    Two men and a woman were found fatally shot inside the home. Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma said it appears they were all shot and that they knew each other.

    Lemma said all of the victims are family and live in the home.

    Anyone who spots the vehicle is asked to call 911 and not approach it. The sheriff said there were weapons in the house, but it also appears that some weapons are missing.

    Grant Amato arrested on murder charges in Chuluota killings of parents, brother

    A man is facing first-degree murder charges in the deaths of his parents and brother last Friday in Chuluota, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said.

    Grant Amato, 29, was apprehended without incident at about 1 a.m. Monday and was booked into the Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said. Amato is being held without bond.

    On Friday morning, deputies found the bodies of Chad Amato, 59, and his wife, Margaret Ann Amato, 61, along with their son Cody, 31, at a home on Sultan Circle, Cannady said. Authorities made the discovery after a coworker called when one of the victims failed to arrive for work, she said.

    Man (29) sent $200K to Bulgarian woman he met online before killing parents, brother, deputies say

    https://www.wesh.com/article/chuluot...icide/26039471

    CHULUOTA, Fla. ?
    Investigators believe a man killed his parents and brother after they got into an argument about hundreds of thousands of dollars that he?d sent to a Bulgarian woman through a pornographic website.

    Grant Amato, 29, is accused of shooting and killing Chad Amato, 59, Margaret Ann Amato, 61 and Cody Winston Amato, 31. The victims were found with gunshot wounds in separate rooms of their home on Sultan Circle early Friday morning, according to the Seminole County Sheriff?s Office.

    According to an arrest affidavit, Grant Amato had been admitted to a south Florida rehab center for sex addiction treatment last month.

    His family ordered him to go to the rehab center after they found out he?d wired more than $200,000 of their money to a woman in Bulgaria.

    When Grant Amato returned from rehab his family ordered him not to have any communication with the woman in Bulgaria, but he said he continued speaking with the woman on Twitter.

    On the night of Jan. 24, Grant Amato?s father confronted him about the communication. Chad Amato and his wife, along with their 31-year-old son, were found dead the next morning.

    The bodies were found at the home in the Pickett Downs subdivision after an employer of one of the victims requested a welfare check when the man failed to show up for work.

    Investigators identified Grant Amato as a person of interest in the case on Friday. He was found Saturday at a hotel in Orange County.

    He was released Sunday while investigators continued to gather evidence and was arrested early Monday at a hotel in Lake Mary.

    This is the 2nd time I've heard of this, the first time was when Tiger Woods went to sex rehab after his wife chased him out of the house and beat his truck with a golf club. lmfaoooo.

    I wonder what they do in sex rehab, do they tell people not to have sex because sex is bad? lol Crazy that a 31 yr old and a 29 yr old still live at home with mommy and daddy.

    The Bulgarian woman is probably a short, obese man, hiding behind a screen-name. Hey, isn't that what we do on MDS? Lol.

    No worries, our search engine isn't the best.

    Hopefully Liv will see this and she can merge the two threads.

    Thank you.:)
    That makes this even sadder. I mean he killed his family over a cam whore?! This stuff just never ceases to amaze me. I feel bad for them, all they did was try to help him & he killed them in return.
    Thank y'all for the posts btw they're always interesting.

    Jury selection begins Monday in the trial of Grant Amato, the Chuluota man accused of killing his parents and brother in January.

    Parents Chad and Margaret Amato and brother Cody Amato were found shot to death in the family's Sultan Circle home.

    Grant Amato was found at a hotel in Orange County.

    Documents released in the case show Amato was fighting with his parents after he allegedly stole $200,000 to interact with an online call girl from Bulgaria.

    Amato checked into a rehab facility for sex addiction, but the document says his father later caught him trying to contact the woman, and he kicked Amato out of the house.

    Amato's attorneys say the prosecution has not produced any physical evidence linking him to the murders. Amato has pleaded not guilty to the murders.

    A jury on Wednesday found Grant Amato guilty of three counts of first-degree murder for shooting his parents and brother to death after they cut off his relationship with a Bulgarian webcam model.

    The jury deliberated for more than eight hours before rendering their verdict shortly after 10 p.m. Amato will either be sentenced to life in prison or death for murdering his parents, Margaret and Chad Amato, and brother Cody Amato in the family’s rural Seminole County home in January.

    The penalty phase in Amato’s trial begins Aug. 12.

    A Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his parents and brother because prosecutors say he was angry they cut off his relationship with a model he met on an adult website.
    I feel horrible because my first thought was does the model take collect calls from prison?
