BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Troopers say a  28-year-old Florida man is accused of dragging the body of a pedestrian he struck with his car and then leaving it behind a bait shop. The Florida Highway Patrol says the 32-year-old victim was walking along a Hernando County road early Sunday when Joseph Charles Strickland hit him with his car. He told his roommates he’d hit a deer. They pushed the car home. The next morning a roommate called deputies. Meanwhile, a human leg was spotted on a roadside. Investigators used a cadaver dog to find the rest of the body and arrested Strickland on multiple charges.
