- Mosley is accused of stabbing the mother of his two-year-old son to death and throwing the baby into a nearby lake, where he was grabbed by a crocodile.
A father accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death and then throwing his two-year-old son into a lake in a wheelchair with heavy bandages wrapped around his arms is seen in new footage from his custody.
Thomas Moseley, 21, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder after the body of Passion Jeffrey, 20, was found in her St Petersburg apartment on Thursday. Her body had been stabbed more than 100 times.
Mosley was arrested after being admitted to hospital with injuries to both arms, which authorities said were “consistent with injuries caused by a slip during a knife attack”.
His son’s body was discovered along with Geoffrey’s, Tylen, hours later in the mouth of a crocodile in a lake where Mosley allegedly impaled the boy.
In the booking photo, Mosley donned a pair of scrubs and a stern expression as officers shoved him into the room. His bandaged orders seemed to be bound together, and he seemed to need help from the officers to stand up before they began their procedure.

Mosley was at Geoffrey’s house late last Wednesday afternoon with her family to celebrate the young father’s birthday.
Several hours later, Mosley arrived at his mother’s home with severe injuries to his hands and arms consistent with injuries sustained from a slip during a knife attack.
Before arriving at his mother’s house, Mosley traveled to the Lake Maggiore area and, in a deliberate manner, threw his son into the water, a police classification as first-degree murder.
Mosley then arrived at his mother’s home at around 9 pm and from there went to the hospital to receive treatment for his injuries before being arrested. He reportedly did not cooperate with the authorities.
a GoFundMe Created by the mourning family who have now raised north of $20,000, Jeffrey describes as “dedicated” to making life better for her son.
Tylenn has been described as a “cute, happy little kid” who would “grab anyone’s phone and pretend to call his mom” while she’s at work.
Seeing them together and loving each other was such a blessing. We will remember their love and we will keep them in our hearts,” he said.
Family members last saw Jeffrey and Tylen on Wednesday, March 29th around 5:30pm. They demanded a young mother’s care check the next day when they were unable to contact her.
Neighbors said they heard a loud bang near the apartment around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, but the police were not called.
The next morning, Jeffrey’s mother calls the apartment manager for a well-being check after her daughter misses her daily FaceTime call.

Law enforcement and family members initially hoped to find Tylen alive when his body was seen being carried by an alligator in the nearby lake.
Jeffrey’s body was found in the bathroom, which was described as an “extremely violent” scene and included a bloody handprint on a cleaning bottle that was “intentionally placed under the bed,” according to the affidavit.
There was also a bloody shoe print with the “Gucci” logo on the floor of the bathroom where the victim was found.
At first, law enforcement and family members were hoping to find Tylenn alive when his body was seen being carried by an alligator in the nearby lake.
One of the officers shot the creeper in order to retrieve the body.
“We’re sorry it ended this way,” St. Petersburg Police Chief Anthony Holloway told a news conference Friday night.
Police dogs, drones and search teams have been dispatched to find the missing child.
He had celebrated his second birthday just 19 days before he was killed.
