Pasco County deputies want armed teenager in murder case

ZEPHYRHILLS — A 16-year-old boy is wanted for second-degree murder in connection with the death of a man found Tuesday on the railroad tracks at Sixth Avenue and Airport Road, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

A warrant was issued Wednesday for Corey Lindsey, of 39809 Cole Ave., in the death of Donald Watts, 54, of 7355 20th St.

Lindsey is considered armed and dangerous, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Watts was shot while in his car and drove as far as he could before passing out, according to the Sheriff's Office.

His car was found around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday at the railroad tracks. Rescue workers pushed the car off the tracks and took the man to Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, where he was pronounced dead.

Watts' family could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Watts has been arrested numerous times since 1989, records show. The charges included marijuana possession, carrying a concealed weapon and fleeing and eluding.

The Sheriff's Office would not release information on how many times Watts was shot, a possible motive or how many suspects could be involved.

Anyone with information on Lindsey's whereabouts should call the local law enforcement agency.
