    I couldn't ever fathom finding my own mother like that. I feel so bad for her son.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say perhaps drugs might have been involved - as in he needed drug money and grandma had it.

    SMH.....

    According to the channel 9 news just now the grandson has confessed to killing his grandmother. Such a sad thing to have happen. I confess, I don't have a lot of the details but the case has been on the news quite a lot.

    He drove to his lawyer's office ((one who had represented him with traffic )) to ask her to introduce him to federal agents in her building.

    '"Soon after Campbell met with federal agents, New Smyrna Beach police arrived and took him into custody. Campbell did not answer any questions as police led him handcuffed to a squad car.

    "I just think that this is the type of person that would prefer a federal agency involved, perhaps because he has seen state agencies, when they arrest people, throw them to the ground," Drees said.

    Campbell was quietly led away, refusing to answer any questions. He will go before a judge Friday
    ."



    He wanted to deal with federal agents according to his lawyer because state LE throws people to the ground during arrest.

    In the link the son of the deceased explains that his mother is dead in his living room (I 'thought' it was her residence)

    "911 dispatcher: How long has she been down for? Can you look at her?

    Robertson's son: I have no idea. She didn't show up for work this morning. Somehow they got in touch with my wife. She called me; I happen to be fairly close by, came by to check on her, and — dead — she's right in the middle of my living room.''

    the grandson is the son of daughter of the deceased

    the son who found his mother is maternal uncle of the accused and who had this to say after Campbell's arrest:

    “Just knowing that he's off the street and that the rest of the family is safe, is good,” said Robertson's son Michael Whitten in a brief telephone interview.''

    The attorney had positive things including:

    “I represented Patrick in the past,” Drees said. “He's very bright. He's very kind. He cares about others.”

    "Campbell has a criminal history that includes misdemeanor charges, but according to court records, he has not previously been arrested for any violent offenses.

    He is being held without bail at the Volusia County Branch Jail and will make his first appearance before a judge this afternoon"

    ''From the start of the hearing, he uttered confusing statements about being a special agent and target.

    Judge: “You’re Mr. Campbell?”

    Campbell: “Sir, I, I’m actually a United States agent. I have completed a sanctioned target and I have a sanction in hand for the matter at hand.”

    Campbell said he didn’t need a public defender but the judge assigned him one anyway.''

    Mental evaluation approved by the court.
