On Dec.7, a relative found the body of 25-year-old Amanda Suarez in her home suffering from a gunshot wound to the back of the head.
Detectives would find Suarez’s missing cell phone nearby on the side of the road. On the blood covered phone, police found a picture of 21-year-old Christopher Shows sleeping on her couch.
When police located and interviewed Show, who was dating Saurez’s cousin, he admitted to a couple of heinous crimes.
After Saurez allowed Shows into her home and ended up rejecting his sexual advances, Shows shot the mother of four in the back of the head with a .22 caliber rifle as she tried running out the back door.
He then admitted to dragging her body into the kitchen where he positioned her in the form of a crucifix before having sex with her body. As for a motive, well, it was just for kicks.
“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,” said Okeechobee County Undersheriff Noel Stephen.
Shows was arrested and facing charges of first-degree premeditated murder, armed burglary, desecration of a body, attempted sexual battery, grand theft and tampering with evidence.Tags: Amanda Suarez, Christopher Shows, Crime, Florida, Murder, Necrophilia, Shooting
