OCSO press release:
A Crestview area murder suspect is in custody after Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies found him in the victim’s car last night in a Fort Walton Beach neighborhood. The OCSO has charged 41-year old Joshua Nunn with first-degree premeditated murder. Deputies were called to a home on Acorn Drive around 7 p.m. last night and found the victim on her bed covered in blood. Her car was missing and OCSO investigators quickly developed Nunn as a suspect. Deputies captured him about three hours later in the victim’s car in the Kiwi/Carson area. Nunn says he used a hammer on the elderly victim, tried to suffocate her with a pillow, and wrapped a cord from an alarm clock around her neck to choke her because he wanted his debit card and her debit card.
OCSO charged Nunn with first-degree premeditated murder. He is being held with no bond.
