FORT MYERS, Fla. (WFLA) — A Florida prosecutor was found dead in his home Saturday, according to law enforcement.
NBC affiliate WBBH reported that law enforcement was at the home of Anthony Kunasek in Fort Myers for hours.
Florida State Attorney Amira Fox released a statement confirming Kunasek’s death, saying he was an “incredibly important and beloved member of our SAO team for many years and a dear friend.”
Kunasek was the prosecutor in the trial for Kierra Russ, one of the suspects in the mass shooting of Club Blu.
