Sarasota County detectives investigating after man allegedly murders two, kills himself in Nokomis

NOKOMIS, Fla. - Sarasota County detectives are investigating after they say a male suspect murdered two victims before killing himself on Monday night in Nokomis.

Deputies were initially called to a home in the 400 block of Kenwood Avenue in Nokomis at 11:13 p.m. after reports of a shooting. Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Section responded to the scene as well.

According to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, five individuals were involved in the incident, three of whom are now deceased. Although autopsies have yet to be performed, the three deceased appear to have died from gunshot inflicted wounds. They believe the suspect, Anthony Isgrig, murdered his wife Susan Rutigliano-Garcia and her son Matthew Beagle before what appears to be a self-inflicted, fatal, gunshot wound. 

A neighbor saw Isgrig punch Rutligiano-Garcia then saw them both run back into their home, while other neighbors reported yelling and gunshots inside the home.

Isgrig left the home, got into his vehicle and drove into neighbor Michael Meacham, as well as a parked car across the street.

"He got out like nothing happened, walked in the house and a couple minutes later we heard gunshots," said neighbor Tom Ferguson.

Another woman suffering from an apparent gunshot wound was transported by BayFlite in critical condition to a local hospital. The fourth victim was treated for minor injuries but is okay.

When asked about the injuries the fourth victim sustained, Sarasota County PIO Kaitlyn Perez said that the wound was not a gunshot wound. 

“There is also a second element to this, an aggravated battery that is being investigated," she added.

 

 

Sarasota County officials say that all five individuals involved are known to one another.

The names and ages of the individuals have not been released at this time pending family notification.
