, the Sheriff's Office received a call from the Miami-Dade Police Department that a wanted murder suspect, Saddoni Levirrick Dowtin, 31, could be hiding in Hillsborough County.
Dowtin is connected to a homicide in Miami on July 13
. An investigation quickly led deputies to a home located at 9305 Grandfield Road in Thonotosassa around 1:30 a.m. Friday
