Mary Esther Man Arrested for Murdering Own Mother

Okaloosa authorities charged 32-year-old Justin David Lantz with second degree murder without premeditation today after discovering he killed his mother in their shared home.
The two lived in Mary Esther. Deputies were called to the house around 10 p.m. on August 1 because of a heated argument between the two.
Lantz voluntarily left the scene when deputies arrived.
Three hours later, a deputy discovered Lantz near a truck parked under Brooks Bridge in Fort Walton. He pointed out the body floating in the Santa Rosa Sound to the deputy. The deputy then discovered the blood in the bed of the truck.
Lantz was detained on the scene. An investigation revealed “obvious signs of struggle” inside the home, including blood.
Police say the mother appeared to suffer from blunt force trauma. An autopsy will reveal the definite cause of death.
