Foul Play Expected in Missing Person Search


Pasco Sheriff’s detectives are asking the public’s assistance in locating 69 year-old Billy Shuler.

Shuler left his residence at 19 Hemlock Court in Homosassa at 11 a.m. on May 21 to visit an acquaintance, Anthony Maresca, 52, in Holiday possibly for a transaction on collectible coins. Maresca’s whereabouts are unknown at this time but he was seen in the Tarpon Springs area after Shuler was reported missing.

He hasn’t been seen since, according to police. His wife reported him missing on May 22 and police began investigating. They say his truck was located outside a storage facility at 5334 Provost Drive, Holiday, with evidence found inside the truck that suggests foul play.
