Lemon Harvey

Corporal Lemon Harvey was shot and killed in the driveway of his home in Thonotosassa as he exited his patrol car at the end of his shift. He was found by children on their way to school the next morning.

The 36-year-old suspect who shot him was hired by another man, age 38, to kill him over a personal matter. Both suspects were convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole in 25 years. In 2022, they were both up for parole and denied.

Corporal Harvey had served with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office for eight years. He was survived by his wife and two children.
