Keller allegedly called 911 to report that his fiancee, Alicia “Red” Campitelli, was dead while someone had possibly broken into their apartment in Merritt island.
“[He] reported that Campitelli was not conscious and not breathing, and then disconnected the 911 call,” Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said.

“I killed her, bro. I killed her high as [expletive]. I did it. I don’t know how I did it, but I can’t live with myself knowing that,” Keller is recorded saying, detectives insist.
“I did it. I’m so (expletive) sorry, man,” he reportedly told the friend, in addition to admitting to being on MDMA and disposing of the murder weapon – which he shot her in “cold blood” with twice – in a barge canal located off Courtenay Parkway in the northern reaches of Merritt Island.
Philip Keller compiled a 2-6 record as an MMA Fighter and most recently competed for Titan FC on three occasions from August 2019 to September 2020.
