Orange County triple homicide suspect believed to be in Jacksonville



JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A man suspected in the deaths of three people in a fire in Orange County is believed to be in Jacksonville.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office issued an arrest warrant for LaRunne Richardson for three counts of first-degree murder in a fire in March at the Misty Oaks Apartments in the Pine Hills area of Orlando.

Carllans Fils-Aime, 29; Jacque Gustave, 8, and Samuel Gustave, 6, died in the fire. The Orange County Sheriff's Office tweeted that "JAX family of LaRunne Richardson tell OCSO homicide detectives they will turn him in, but have yet to do so."

Richardson told investigators the juveniles were in the apartment and was intially considered a person of interest in the case and was cooperating with the investigation.

As of April 2, however, Richardson stopped cooperating and the fire deaths were ruled homicides.
