Here is some interesting information on the creep;

http://www.newsherald.com/news/beach-94559-death-girl.html

snipped;

Cozzie had been living with family off Robert Ellis Drive near where Wilkes’ body was found. He had been kicked out of the house a few weeks ago and was camping out nearby, Adkinson said.

Teresa Carter, who lives at Cassine Garden Townhomes on Cypress Grove Lane nearby, said Friday that she identified Cozzie when deputies showed her his photo.

She said Cozzie was a frequent trespasser and that he had been living around the complex’s swimming pool for a week after his family kicked him out of their home.

“I have to kick him out of here all the time,” Carter said. “He never wears a shirt, always on his skateboard and always trespassing. I thought trespassing was all he was good for.”

Cozzie’s Facebook page says he attended South Walton High School. Karissa Sheffield, 19, who identified herself as Cozzie’s “ex,” said she knew Cozzie had a strained relationship with his stepfather, but learning of his arrest “really shocked me.”

She described Cozzie as “kind of a creep.”

Private attorneys appointed in Cozzie murder case
 ::snipping2::

“The public defender’s office represents a material witness in the defendant’s case,” Platteborze said in a document filed in Walton County Circuit Court late last month. “The prosecutor agrees there is a conflict.”

By the middle of last month, Assistant State Attorney Bobby Elmore, who is prosecuting the case, had provided Platteborze with lists of at least 100 names of possible witnesses.

The lists include 18-year-old Michael Spencer, who Walton County sheriff’s deputies said led them to Wilkes’ body. Spencer told deputies Cozzie had taken him into the woods to show him what he had done shortly after the killing, according to court records.

EDITORIAL: What's in a name? For Steven Cozzie it may cost him an insanity plea
August 09, 2011 11:16 AM

Quote
During a hearing last week in DeFuniak Springs, the murder suspect asked to address the court. He wanted everyone to know his last name doesn’t rhyme with Ozzy. It rhymes with cozy.

Whatever else he accomplished with that exchange, Mr. Cozzie almost certainly made it more difficult for his lawyer to mount an insanity defense somewhere down the line.

In exchange for pleading to lesser charges, Randall will testify against former girlfriend and Steven Cozzie.

Elmore declined to go into specifics of what Cozzie might have told Randall while they were in the Walton County Jail. He said only that Randall was “a witness to statements.”
