Police seek man wanted in Easter morning murder of St. Petersburg mother of two

ST. PETERSBURG — Police are looking for a man they believe is responsible for the Easter morning murder of a St. Petersburg mother of two.

Police obtained a first-degree murder warrant for John Curry, 22, of St. Petersburg. He is one of two men they say entered a home at 4034 11th Ave. S. and opened fire.

Tamika Lashond Mack, 24, and Tore V. Holley, 29, were shot multiple times, police said.

Mack had stopped by Holley's home early the morning of April 8 after working a late shift at a nursing home.

Curry and another man burst into the home and started shooting, police said.

Holley managed to escape and ran to a neighbor's home for help.

Officers found Mack unresponsive. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she died, police said.

Curry was released from prison last year after serving time for drug-related charges, and police consider him armed and dangerous.

Curry has numerous tattoos, including the words "Life," "Death," "Laniel," and "Mickey" on his neck, a skeleton in flames on his left upper arm, and a cross with praying hands on his right upper arm.

Police are offering a reward for information leading to Curry's arrest. Anyone with information can call (727) 893-7780.
