Lutz, Florida, June 24. (UPI) – A Florida man is in custody on charges of killing his 74-year-old grandmother during a bloody struggle inside her nudist colony.
Early Monday morning, a neighbor saw 18-year-old Brandon Macchetto dragging his grandmother’s wrapped corpse into his minivan, apparently checking to see if the shore was clear. In addition to the fact that Macchetto did not notice the neighbor, he could not hide his grandmother’s legs, which is why they called the police. At about 10 o’clock in the morning, the deputy noticed Macchetto and tried to stop him. Macchetto escaped, returning to the Paradise Lakes Condominium Association, where he was finally arrested. … But that all changed after one brutal incident five years ago: “He did what you told him, he never behaved disrespectfully,” said Ronnie Hall. Hall trained Macchetto Krav Maga for seven years. The martial arts instructor said Macchetto suffered mental damage when in 2009 he was jumped and hit on the head with a brick.
“He was very nervous, very agitated, and for the first time he had problems with his grandmother because he was not on medication,” Hall told WTSP, which is part of Tampa Bay.
“The brain injury he received when he was hit with a stone in the back of his head – from which he nearly died – prevented him from growing up, and I think it has something to do with it.”
