NEW PORT RICHEY, FL (WFLA) -

"I've been here 26 years and I've seen over 260 homicides. I would not classify this as the worst but I would classify it probably in the top ten."

Sergeant James Sessa of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office is talking about the murder of Dennis Abrahamsen.

In May of 2010,  Abrahamsen's body was discovered in his home, badly beaten and stabbed. A prostitute named Amanda Logue was the prime suspect. Abrahamsen was her client. Detectives with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office tracked down messages from Logue's phone and discovered a second suspect, her boyfriend Jason Andrews.

"Some of the text messages included Amanda telling Jason to just be calm and just wait because she was getting him to lay face down some of the text messages said that she was unlocking the door and that she was looking around for something to bash his head with or a knife to kill him with."

The story is now being told by the Oxygen network show, "Snapped, Killer Couples".  

Detectives say the murder scene was so gruesome that when they recently returned to film the show there was still blood spatter present.

The producers of the show interviewed the detectives about the murder. They also talked to Logue who is serving a forty year prison sentence.

Detective Jim Gariepy says that they don't want the viewers to feel sorry for her.

"They need to understand that she's a killer and not a victim... that's the bottom line."

Detective William Lindsey said, "people need to realize there are people out there that are monsters that are hunting other people."
