Holiday, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Baron Von Duke Vercruysse, a 23-year-old Florida man, was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly killed his father and burned his body after the two argued over the cleanliness of his room.

According to police, Vercruysse and his father were arguing on New Year's Eve when Vercruysse grabbed his father's legs and pushed him to the ground.

Investigators say the victim, identified as 52-year-old Rene Vercruysse, struck his head during the fall and sustained a head injury.

Baron Vercruysse then allegedly dragged his father's body from the master bathroom to an area near his father's bed in the master bedroom. Vercruysse then grabbed a container of gasoline from the garage, doused his father's body with it and then set him on fire.

Emergency responders were dispatched to the family's home at 10:20 p.m. after neighbors saw the blaze.

Medical examiners determined that the victim had sustained several injuries, including the head injury, before his body was set on fire. A warrant for Baron Vercruysse's arrest was issued a short time later.

Vercruysse was located, booked into the Pasco County Jail and charged with first-degree murder.

Vercruysse has been arrested multiple times in Pinellas County on charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of alcohol by a minor, drunk driving, and possession of oxycodone.
