Tampa Bay area radio Q105 DJ Dave “Flash” Morgan is mourning the death of his youngest daughter, after she was found dead in a north Tampa home with her boyfriend Wednesday night.

“I'm trying to hold it together right now, it's so fresh and I'm very numb to the fact right now,” said Morgan whose real name is Dave Sizemore.

Chelsea Sizemore, 21, and Eric Salabirria, 28, were found inside a home located at 10013 N 24th Street late Wednesday. TPD said both victims had “upper body trauma” but police have not said exactly how the couple died.

Chelsea Sizemore’s two-year-old daughter was in the home, but she was not harmed, according to police.

“Fortunately she didn't have to see any of it, thanks to quick action by one of the neighbors who pretty swiftly got her out of there,” said Sizemore. The child is now with her grandmother.

TPD said it doesn’t appear anyone forced their way inside the home. They also have not released any information about a possible suspect. Detectives were questioning neighbors as late as Thursday afternoon.

Family members of Eric Salabirria said the couple had been together for a year. They said Salabirria was training to become a plumber.

Sizemore says his daughter was a lot like him.

“Chelsea was me. She had my sort of dark personality if you will. She had my eyes. Every time I would look into her eyes it was like looking in the mirror,” said Sizemore.

Howie Taylor, who is a friend of the Sizemore family, has set up a fundraiser to help during this difficult time.

“This is a parent’s worst nightmare and the last thing he needs to really be worried about is how he is going to pay for services,” said Taylor.
