What was the name of the person/people murdered? I was born in Manatee county and lived there in the early 1980's. My father owned a newspaper there. It's possible he covered the story. If you can give me a name or DM me a name I can ask him, or you might be able to Google it.

There are lots of newspapers online that go back to the 1980s at this web site.

Do a keyword search for "murder" and any name of those involved in the murder. You'll probably get about 25,000 hits, so after you get initial results you can select a custom date range at the left to narrow the results.

Go to the Manatee County Sheriff's office records dept. You most likely have to pay a nominal fee, but whatever is public record will be available to you.

The library keeps records and has past newspapers on microfiche where you can do a search. Ask a librarian to help you get started. Here is the web site for the Manatee County Public Library System: Manatee County Public Library System

Local archives, Bradenton or Sarasota newspaper. Have you tried googling the persons name?
