Phillup Alan Partin (born June 29, 1965, Sacramento, California) is an American convicted murderer currently on Florida death row at the Florida State Prison. Partin was sentenced to death by a 9-3 vote in favour of the sentence by a jury on December 1, 2008 for the July 31, 2002 murder of 16-year old hitchhiker Joshan Ashbrook.[1][2]

Murder[edit]

Evidence at Partin's trial showed that he picked up Ashbrook as she hitchhiked along Florida on July 31, 2002. He and Ashbrook spent the day fishing and swimming with Partin's daughter, then 7, before returning to the New Port Richey house where he and his daughter were living. Prosecutors think Ashbrook was killed between 9 p.m. and midnight. The next morning, workers found her body in woods off Shady Hills Road. She had been strangled, her throat gashed and her neck broken. Nine days after the discovery,[3] Partin dropped his daughter off in Wauchula and left the state. He was a fugitive for more than a year before investigators tracked him to Fayetteville, North Carolina. He was arrested there on October 28, 2003.[4] The crime was featured on the TruTV crime show "Forensic Files"
