A 21-year-old man has confessed to shooting dead a mother of four and then having sex with her body just to feel what it is like to kill
Amanda Suarez, 25, have been shot in the head by Christopher Shows after she rejected his sexual advances on December 7.
Shows turned up at her house just west of the City of Okeechobee in Florida and after she turned him down he went to his truck to grab a .22 rifle before going back to shoot her.
After firing at her Shows moved her to the kitchen and had sex with her body. Suarez's two-year-old daughter was in the house during the grisly episode, investigators say.
Detectives added that it is impossible to say if the victim was alive at this point.
Police arrested Shows on Monday and he has since confessed to the murder of the wife and mother.
'Good wife, good mother,' said Okeechobee County Undersheriff, and Sheriff-elect, Noel Stephen.
'Everything going their way, until they crossed paths with this sad individual,' said Undersheriff Stephen.
Shows met Suarez while dating her cousin and had been to her home before which is why, police say, her large guard dog didn't bark at his presence.
Suarez's missing cell phone was recovered by detectives several days later covered in blood by the side of a nearby road.
On the phone, a photo of Shows sleeping on the sofa, placed him at the crime scene, and proved to be the big break in the case, said Stephen.
'In his confession it was just he wanted to know what murder was about. Unfortunately, it was no rhyme no reason. He just wanted to know what murder felt like,' added the Undersheriff.
Shows is now facing charges of first-degree premeditated murder, armed burglary of an occupied residence with a battery, desecration of a body, attempted sexual battery, grand theft from a residence, and tampering with evidence.
