Arrest made in death of homeless man dropped off at Hudson hospital

PORT RICHEY — A man was stabbed during a drug deal gone bad Saturday night, then dropped off at a hospital where he later died, authorities said.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said Sunday night it had arrested Kevin Dylan Whittaker, 26, on a first-degree murder charge in the death of Cory Keeler, 25. Both men were homeless.

Authorities said Whittaker was trying to rob Keeler during a drug deal when the victim tried to get his money back. Keeler was stabbed several times by Whittaker along Sandra Drive in Port Richey, investigators said.

About 9 p.m. Saturday, someone dropped off a seriously injured Keeler at the Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson, where he later died.
