Mother finds bodies of two in Seffner home

SEFFNER — A mother discovered her son and his roommate dead Sunday night inside a mobile home, investigators said.

Killed were Joshua Austin Deas, who turned 24 on Wednesday, and Kenneth V. Simmons, 34. They lived in the Parsons Village mobile home park at 1014 N Parsons Ave., Lot 10, just south of Interstate 4.

Deas' mother found them about 5:30 p.m., said sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter.

Autopsies were to be performed today to determine the time and cause of death, but investigators said the men appear to have suffered severe blunt trauma to their bodies.

There did not appear to be any signs of a break-in, Carter said.

Deas wrote on his Facebook page that he had worked in the produce department of a Walmart Super Center.

On his Facebook page, Simmons said he was originally from Plant City.
