Morse later admitted to purposefully crashing into the family, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by WTVT.

Dugan said Morse did not explain why he did it.

Morse is charged with premeditated murder in the first degree, leaving the scene of a crash with death, leaving the scene of a crash with serious bodily injury, and two counts of attempted murder, records show.

Mikese Morse at the jail in Tampa, Fla. They wore helmets in case of a spill, and a swath of grass separated the bike path from cars that rumbled along New Tampa Boulevard. "She is going to have to pick up the pieces", he said. That night authorities took their son into custody.

"If you know someone who owns a vehicle like that, if you have any compassion in your soul, you will call Tampa PD", Dugan added during the news conference.

Videos and other posts on Morses Instagram page — some posted near or after the time of the crash — show closeup images of a man unraveling, fixated on what he claimed to be the devils power over him.

"Yeah devil, this is all your fault, all your fault because you descended to Earth", he purportedly said in a video posted Sunday morning. "You said you don't care about anybody down here". "You see these energies changing inside of me and stuff and trying to change perspective". Morse then allegedly drove away without stopping to help the victims.

Dugan said the two boys saw their father die at the scene and their mother is facing an enormous loss.

The vehicle involved in the hit and run earlier today near New Tampa Blvd. Police allege that Morse tried to "conceal the damage" to his auto by applying a strip of tape to its windshield.

Morse is being held without bond at the Hillsborough County Jail. Detectives took him to police headquarters, where he was arrested. He earned track and field accolades for both the University of South Florida and the University of Miami.

A motorist arrested in Florida after a witness said he deliberately ran over a man on a bicycle is a track-and-field athlete who repeatedly qualified for the United States Olympic Trials.

Catherine Lavender, who lives down the street from the family, said Pedro Aguerreberry greeted her when she moved into her townhouse three months ago. At the time of Pedro Aguerreberry's death, his wife, Meghan Aguerreberry, had been with their sons, Dugan said. "I cant imagine anyone wanting to hurt them or do anything like this".
