Onstott Sentenced to Life

Yesterday, David Lee Onstott was sentence to life in prison. Three years ago, he murdered Sarah Lunde, who was just 13 years old. The Tampa jury convicted Onstott of second-degree murder and battery. The convictions are less than what prosecutors sought, but there was no physical or forensic evidence to link Onstott to the crime.
There was a taped confession, but the Court threw the confession out. In the confession, Onstott admitted to strangling Sarah, though he could not remember where he strangled her. He then disposed of her body in an abandoned fishpond in Ruskin.
