Deputies: Two charged in Carrollwood home invasion that leaves one suspect dead

TAMPA — Early Sunday morning, three men and a woman robbed Anthony Dipaolo at gunpoint in his Carrollwood home, authorities said.

Dipaolo shot and killed one of the intruders, 23-year-old Jonathan Fernandez, deputies said. Then Dipaolo was shot in the leg.

The remaining three suspects stole property valued at $40,000 from Dipaolo and left the home on Hudson Lane, according to an arrest report. The report does not say what was stolen.

Deputies said Monday they had arrested two of the suspects and were looking for the third. All three face charges of second-degree murder because Fernandez was killed during commission of a felony.

On Sunday evening, Hillsborough sheriff's deputies picked up Willie Nathaniel Goff at his home at 11500 Dale Mabry Highway on a warrant issued in South Carolina, according to agency spokeswoman Debbie Carter.

The next morning, while still in custody, deputies added charges of second degree murder and armed home invasion, she said.

On Goff's phone, deputies found text messages from Katherine Schaeffer sent about the time the home invasion occurred, an arrest report said.

The text messages informed Goff, 29, that the Carrollwood house was ready to be robbed, the report said.

Deputies issued a warrant for Schaeffer, 23, of 9406 Bellhaven St. in Tampa, and by early Monday morning, Panama City Beach Police found her at a motel.

She was arrested and charged with armed home invasion, second degree murder and aggravated battery.

Jail records show Schaeffer, Goff and Fernandez have prior arrests in Hillsborough County. Goff and Fernandez, of 2559 Cedar Cypress Court, were both arrested on charges that included battery and possession of marijuana. Fernandez also had burglary charges, records show. Schaeffer's was most recently arrested on a 2009 battery charge in Pinellas County.

Dipaolo also had been arrested on charges that included burglary, possession of cannabis and battery.

After he was shot in the leg, Dipaolo was taken to a hospital for treatment but was released Monday, Carter said. He could not be reached for comment.
