Dontae Rashawn Morris, 24, was arrested Friday on charges of first-degree murder in the slayings of Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab. He also is charged in the fatal shooting of Derek Anderson, 18, and is a suspect in the killing of Harold Wright, 25.
Morris' brother – who also had been sought for days by police – and Carolyn Riggins' daughter, Alaina, were arrested Friday on charges not related to the slayings. Police found a gun, cocaine and marijuana in room 154 of the Motel 6 on Fowler Avenue, where the two were staying, police records show.
Investigators are trying to determine what, if anything, Carolyn Riggins knew about Morris and his brother, Dwayne Callaway, and what their whereabouts were during the manhunt.
Callaway's arrest report states that he "provided refuge" to Morris, who had been on the run since the officers' were slain June 29 during a traffic stop. "In all likelihood, he'll be charged with providing assistance to his brother," Castor said, adding that police are continuing to run down leads.
Carolyn Riggins knew that her daughter, 25-year-old Alaina Riggins, had a relationship with Callaway and Morris, Castor said. "There was not a romantic relationship between" Riggins and Callaway or Morris, Castor said. "As described, it was a close-knit friendship." (COUSINS)
Alaina Riggins, of 501 Maple Pointe Drive in Seffner, was arrested Friday on charges of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, cocaine possession and possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. She was released on $10,000 bond.
Alaina Riggins yelled at a reporter outside her home this afternoon. She refused to answer questions and tore up the reporter's business card.
Alaian Nichole Riggins, who appears to be a cousin of Tampa cop killer Donte Morris is also a drug dealer with a Felony arrest history going back to Sept. 2005.
