Video shows glimpse of life of amputee sought in parents' death
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Sean Petrozzino, a quadruple amputee named a person of interest in his parents' deaths, is still on the loose and new video shows a glimpse into his life.
At 16, his inspirational fight against bacterial meningitis made headlines.
"It's the best thing I've had in like five months. It's overwhelming," said the young Petrozzino during a 2000 fundraiser after the illness claimed both his hands and feet. "I had no idea this is what was going to happen tonight. I'm just -- I'm in awe of it all. Wonderful people," his mother, Nancy, told WPLG-TV at the time.
Police said they now believe Petrozzino may be back in his home town of Coral Springs, after authorities discovered his parents' bodies in their east Orange County home Tuesday morning.
He's now a person of interest and was last seen at an Orlando bank the same day his parents -- Michael, a Disney worker, and Nancy, a popular teacher -- were found shot to death.
On social media, the quadruple amputee and his family seemed happy. But at 30, his life took a turn. Neighbors said he separated from his wife and moved home a week before the killings.
Court records show a foreclosure notice had also recently been filed on a home he owns in Orlando, but abandoned when he and his wife moved to Georgia in 2013.
But what exactly happened remains a mystery. Deputies have not named him a suspect, but said he is the only person of interest in the death of his parents.
They also said he has a gun, is dangerous, and could be driving a red Toyota with Florida license tag 112VZY.
"I hope that the police catch him," said neighbor Fran Miller. "I have no idea where he is and I hope he doesn't come back to this neighborhood."
Deputies haven't released any new information about the murders or revealed if they've gotten any tips about Sean Petrozzino's whereabouts.
