Bryan Santana a 20 year old Orlando, Florida pizza deliveryman has been charged with murder after allegedly strangling and stabbing to death his room mate, 23 year old Shelby Fazio and then having sex with her lifeless body.
According to a confession Santana made he told how he choked Fazio from behind and then stabbed her in the neck.
Added an arrest report: ‘He stated that he later had sexual intercourse with her body after she was dead.’
The 20-year-old also allegedly attempted to kill his other roommate and planned to buy a fake gun so he could commit ‘suicide by cop.’
The murder tell authorities took place early Tuesday morning inside the house at 447 North John Street, which Bryan Santana shared with Fazio and 23-year-old John Heermance who moved in three months ago.
Heermance told investigators that he came home at around 9am Tuesday and noticed a trail of blood smeared across the hallway leading to Shelby Fazio’s room, which was closed.
The arrest affidavit cited by Orlando Sentinel stated that Heermance then saw Santana in the bathroom washing his hands.
The 23-year-old man turned to grab his cellphone and car keys so he could call for help from a safe distance, but in that moment Santana allegedly pounced on him armed with a can of pepper spray and a knife.
Nevertheless Heermance was able to flee unharmed.
From there Santana jumped into Shelby Fazio’s car and headed to a Walmart store so he could buy a fake gun.
Reiterated an arrest report: ‘He said he was looking for a Walmart to find a fake gun like a BB gun so he could point it at a police officer so they would shoot him,’ the report said.
But before the 20-year-old Santana had a chance to carry out his plan, he was arrested by police acting on a tip inside a barbershop that he had gone to in downtown Orlando.
The owner of the hair salon told Channel 9 that Santana went in to get a haircut and was in a rush, telling the barber that he was going to the movies with a ‘hot girl.’
‘His eyes were big and [he] said, “I’m going to jail,” so he knew it was over,’ the shop owner told of the moment of Santana’s arrest.
Officers arriving at the murder scene would discover a piece of drywall with writing on it with the following scrawled message: ‘Not sorry for what I did’ and ‘I’m sorry.’
According to her Facebook page, Shelby Fazio, a native of Lapeer, Michigan, studied biology at Grand Valley State University and worked at Disney World Yacht and Beach Club. She is survived by her parents and two siblings.
Santana is now under medical supervision at the Orange County Jail without bail where he has been charged with murder and attempted murder.
