Osceola County deputies wrap up murder investigation


OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - Osceola County deputies made their final arrests Sunday in a murder investigation.

Undercover agents raided the Stay and Save motel on North 14th Street in Leesburg.

“I was reading my book, and I heard ‘Hands up, don’t move.’ Then I saw all the cops with guns and I started shaking,” said motel resident Barbara Phelps.

They arrested 26-year-old Marcus Foster for the murder of 25-year-old Elijah Daise, who was found dead in Poinciana last week.

Deputies believe the murder was drug related.

Three other men were arrested.
