Police: Man stabbed mother of 2-year-old found in alligator jaws more than 100 times
Thomas Mosley was arrested Friday night after police found his missing toddler son, Taylen Mosley, dead.
On Wednesday afternoon, 20-year-old Pashun Jeffery's family visited her home for Thomas Mosley's birthday party, according to an affidavit from the police department.
Jeffery's family left the home at about 5:15 p.m. and the only people at the residence were Thomas Mosley, Jeffery and their 2-year-old son, the affidavit says. Almost four hours later at around 9:03 p.m., police say Thomas Mosley arrived at his mother's home with "severe lacerations to both of his hands and arms" that closely aligned with the same injuries of someone who was involved in a knife attack. He later admitted himself to St. Anthony's Hospital.
Authorities say they found "in excess of 100 wounds" on the 20-year-old's body.
At the apartment, police say they found a bloody fingerprint on a cleaning bottle that was intentionally placed under a bed and a bloody shoe print with a Gucci emblem on the bathroom floor where Jeffery was found.
According to the affidavit, the fingerprint from the cleaning bottle was identified as belonging to Thomas Mosley.
Documents say around 8:42 p.m. Thursday, Thomas Mosley went to the Lake Maggiore area in St. Pete before continuing on to his mother's which is about 10 blocks away from the lakes.
