OKALOOSA COUNTY: A Crestview area murder suspect is in custody after Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies found him in the victim’s car last night in a Fort Walton Beach neighborhood.
The OCSO has charged 41-year old Joshua Nunn with first degree premeditated murder. Deputies were called to a home on Acorn Drive around 7 p.m. last night and found the victim on her bed covered in blood.
Her car was missing and OCSO investigators quickly developed Nunn as a suspect. Deputies captured him about three hours later in the victim’s car in the Kiwi/Carson area.
Nunn says he used a hammer on the elderly victim, tried to
suffocate her with a pillow, and wrapped a cord from an alarm clock around her neck to choke her because he wanted his debit card and her debit card.
Nunn was released from a Florida prison in November 2021 after serving time for robbery.
