The friendship of the four young roommates — though cemented in the dark trappings of an obscure neo-Nazi group called Atomwaffen Division — never seemed destined for bloodshed.

The Hamptons condo and apartment complex in Tampa is quintessential Florida. Lush and modern, the stucco homes are painted in a soft rainbow of pastels. All around are palm trees, Spanish moss and lily pads.

"It is a very quiet place. You have a lot of children that live here. A lot of professionals live here, retirees," said resident Michael Colon, 66.

But on May 19, that tranquility was shattered in an improbable case that involves four young roommates at the complex.

Two of the men are dead and the other two are in jail.

Last month, news broke of a double murder at a New Tampa apartment.

Suspect Devon Arthurs says he is a former Neo-Nazi who converted to Islam. He is accused of killing two of his roommates for disrespecting his new faith.

The case became even more dramatic when investigators accused a fourth roommate - Brandon Russell - of keeping bomb-making materials at the apartment.
