FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Broward Sheriff Greg Tony told mourners at firefighter's funeral that two people have been arrested in connection with his death.

News outlets report that Tony said investigators "have a confession" in the case as some 800 people gathered for the funeral of 39-year-old Christopher Randazzo on Thursday. He added that four people have been identified as suspects.

Randazzo was a member of the Coral Springs Fire Department. He was last seen early Saturday leaving a seaside restaurant where he worked as a bartender before becoming a firefighter. His body was found outside a hotel in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

Sheriff's officials offered no other details about the arrests, the motive or how Randazzo was killed.
