Second suspect sought in Pasco County biker's slaying

NEW PORT RICHEY — A second person has been accused of murdering Dennis "Scooter" Abrahamsen, a 41-year-old biker and tattoo parlor owner found dead in his home last month after hosting a sex party.

Authorities are searching for Jason Andrews, 27. A warrant has been issued for his arrest on a charge of first-degree murder. Kevin Doll, spokesman for the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, said investigators believe Andrews might be in Florida.

He said Andrews should be considered armed and dangerous.

Doll asked for people with information about Andrews' whereabouts to call their local law enforcement agency.

On May 16, a relative found Abrahamsen dead on a massage table in his home on Sycamore Drive in New Port Richey. Court documents state Abrahamsen had been stabbed and his head crushed by a sledgehammer.

Authorities say Amanda Logue, a 28-year-old mother, fetish model and wife to a man in Georgia, was paid to have sex with Abrahamsen and another couple on the night of May 15. Court documents reveal text messages sent between Logue and Andrews, who was allegedly waiting outside Abrahamsen's home.

"I'm so glad you're really commited to this take. Keep eyes for a knife, etc for me!" Andrews sent to Logue, records state.

Logue said she wanted to have sex with Andrews "after we kill" Abrahamsen. Andrews told Logue to "bash" Abrahamsen on the head and to take her time, according to the transcripts.

Authorities say Andrews and Logue — after the slaying — stole $6,000 in cash from Abrahamsen's house, along with cameras and a laptop. On May 17, authorities say, Andrews charged $409.31 on Abrahamsen's Home Depot credit card. Both Andrews and Logue were arrested May 18 on charges of stealing $67.97 worth of clothes from Beall's in Largo.

They were questioned by detectives about the murder while in the Pinellas County jail. But both were released on bail. Logue went home to her husband in Georgia and was arrested May 27. She was extradited Monday to the Pasco County jail.

Andrews was released May 19.

"We didn't have the evidence at that time," Doll said, as to the question of why Andrews was allowed to be released from jail.

"Now we do."
