Woman found dead in lake near UCF lived in house owned by woman murdered in July

ORLANDO — The man, who resides in a home where two murdered women once lived, returned home Tuesday after hours of questioning from Orange County investigators.

A search warrant was served on the home on Spring Cone Court, in east Orlando, where Jereme Burke lived with his mother Barbara.

On July 18, 2010, Barbara, 58, was found murdered in her garage.

Burke later rented a room to Terri Krall, who moved in after Barbara’s murder.

Krall’s body was found floating in Lake Ruth Sunday, approximately 10 miles from the home.

Burke’s neighbor doesn’t know what to think.

“It worries me,” said Devin Keebler, who lives next door. “I hope they get to the bottom of it at soon as possible.”

Keebler said for the most part, Burke and Krall didn’t talk much to anyone else. The one time Burke asked for help sticks in his mind.

“‘The Internet is down, so can I use yours?’ He never asked me again,” Keebler said.

At around 7 p.m. Tuesday, investigators took down the crime scene tape, and left the neighborhood with bags of evidence.

News 13 later saw Burke walking around his garage. Then after seeing the media through the windows, he shut off the lights.

Burke has not left his house at all.

When deputies were asked if they would return Wednesday, they declined to comment.
