Body Found In Orlando Linked To Fla. Salon Shooting

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Investigators say a man found dead in an Orlando apartment is linked to the suspected gunman who killed three women at a central Florida beauty salon before killing himself.

Police told the Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/SfSUnA ) Tuesday that 28-year-old Roberto Carolos Colon was found dead Friday night. Authorities went to the apartment after receiving a call to check on his well-being.

Investigators say they don’t know if 36-year-old Bradford Baumet was also responsible for Colon’s death. They say Baumet took Colon’s vehicle.

Baumet was found dead inside a friend’s home a few miles from the Casselberry salon where three women were fatally shot and another was wounded around lunchtime on Oct. 18.
