Sean Petrozzino, 30, is known around South Florida for his courage, strength and upbeat attitude.

Bacterial meningitis ravaged Sean’s hands, feet and parts of his limbs.

Now, he’s a person of interest in the murder of his parents.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the bodies of 64-year-old Nancy Petrozzino and 63-year-old Michael Petrozzino were found Tuesday in their east Orange County, Fla., home.

The two had been married for 41 years.

After finding the bodies, police found Michael Petrozzino’s red Toyota Camry gone from the home and Sean nowhere to be found.

Sean is only a person of interest and not a suspect, sheriff’s spokeswoman Jane Watrel said.

“We want to get him in here and talk to us so we can find out what happened, since he was apparently living with his parents,” Watrel said in a press conference.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that deputies believe Sean is heading to Jupiter or Coral Springs in South Florida. He is wearing both his prosthetic legs.

Homicide detectives on Wednesday released a photo of Sean near an ATM in an undisclosed location on Orlando on Tuesday. They stressed to look for physical characteristics of his hands.

  • Huh?

    How did he do it without hands or feet? I’d say he has an alibi that’s pretty solid. Plus his case should be easy to win and the attorney’s fees shouldn’t cost and arm and a leg.
