Two Manatee County Murders Likely Linked


Two Manatee County murders that happened on the same day but miles apart are apparently connected.

Police say 23 year old Jordan Finlon, whose body was found in a Palmetto nature preserve, and 38 year old Karl Tuxford, whose body was found in a car on 8th Avenue E in Bradenton, knew each other.

Both were shot to death.

Authorities say a dark-colored SUV was seen speeding away from the Tuxford murder scene.
