Breaking News 24/7

SANDESTIN —On Tuesday July 13th Walton County Sheriff’s Office released a statement announcing the “brutal homicide” after a woman was found deceased inside the gated resort community of Sandestin, in Miramar Beach, Florida.

24-year-old Storm Royal Thayer of Miramar Beach was identified as the suspect. WCSO spokeswoman Corey Dobridnia stated that Royal Thayer was living at the home on Troon Drive and was immediately detained.


Thayer has been charged with second-degree murder following the initial investigation. However the details surrounding this hemious crime have been silenced from the local media. Using good old fashion investigavtive skills we were able to obtain the details of this crime:

According to documents we recieved three people lived in the home at 1161 Troon Drive, Miramar Beach FL. The suspect, victim and the suspects father.


On July 13th 2021, deputies were dispatched to the residence after recieving a 911 call from the suspects father. When deputies arrived they noticed the deceaed victim laying the garage area with no underwear on and her shirt pulled up over her head.


According to the medical examiner she had approxamatley 109 stab wounds to her body. Deputies were able to access the home video security system and determined the victim was murdered the evening prior. When watching the footage, they couldnt observe the crime visually, but could hear the victim screaming and being slashed by the knife which will turn out to be the most bone chilling evidence from this crime.


After the victim was killed, suspect Storm Thayer proceeded to disconnect the security camera and took it offline. He then proceeded to wash his blood soaked pants in the washing machine, which is where they were discovered when deptuies arrived.


During the suspects interview he stated he took a trazadone and had a few alcoholic beverages with the victim before going to bed at the same time as his father. He then stated that he woke up in the morning and stumbled across the victim and "stepped in something weird" when he discovered the victim's body. Deputies noticed there were large quantities of blood throughout the residence. Upon further investigation it was noted the suspect had blood under multiple fingernails as well.

The motive for the crime is unknown at this time. However, one thing is clear, the suspect tried to cover it up with intent. He disconnected the security cameras, washing his clothing, and probably did even more as it was noted the golf cart was moved from when they saw it in the last video clip before it was taken offline.


This is one of the most heinous murders that has ever taken place in this area and yet the local media appears to not be interested. There has been a large spike in murders in this same region and yet no one is asking why or covering them. One thing is for certain we will be exposing all of them so our communities can be educated on the risks.
