A 31-year-old man was arrested Saturday in the murder of a 69-year-old Palm Bay resident on Thursday.

According to the Palm Bay Police Department, Justin Giambanco was already at the Brevard County Jail complex facing charges unrelated to the homicide.

On Thursday, around 7 p.m., Palm Bay police responded to a 911 call that led them to a residence in the 2700 block of palm Drive Northeast, where they found a 69-year-old male death at the scene, according to Chief Mario Augello.

Palm Bay investigators said they discovered evidence at the scene that immediately connected Giambanco to the homicide investigation.

“I can’t say enough about our local law enforcement community here in Brevard County. It was a collaborative effort that helped take this evil off our streets,” Augello said.

Giambanco has a criminal history with numerous felony and misdemeanor charges, according to Palm Bay police.

“He has 22 felony charges, along with 24 misdemeanor charges yet, somehow, this individual is out roaming free within our community, terrorizing our citizens,” Augello said.
