Fatal Fire Called A Homicide, Women Found Said To Have Ties To Drug Dealers

HUDSON, Fla. (AP) — Pasco County officials say two women who were found inside a burning home died from “homicidal violence.”

The bodies of Jessica Keith and Amber Lynn Jordan were found Monday morning in Hudson.

Officials say they believe the fire was intentionally set to cover up the crime.

During a news conference on Tuesday, Sheriff Chris Nocco referred to the women as “high probability victims” who put themselves in harm’s way by associating with drug dealers.

Investigators are tracking leads and are looking into persons of interest.

The case remains under investigation.
