BRADENTON, Fla. - A man and woman were found dead in a Bradenton mobile home on Friday afternoon, according to officials.

Manatee County deputies received a report of a disturbance in a mobile home when a woman was heard crying for help, according to authorities.
Deputies say they found the victims, who were later identified as 62-year-old Patricia Matejcek and her boyfriend 55-year-old Sean Harrison Sr., dead on the floor inside the mobile home.
"This was certainly a horrible scene here," said Randy Warren, a spokesman for MCSO. "Two people had been killed. It was a very gruesome type scene."
Both victims lived in the home, according to MCSO.
Shortly after their arrival, deputies say they saw another man running away. Deputies and the sheriff's office's K-9 unit found the man in a parking lot outside a shopping center along 14th Street West.
He was identified as 36-year-old Thomas Matejcek, the son of Patrica Matejcek, according to deputies. Authorities say he was taken into custody.
