Steven Cozzi Case
On March 21, 2023, the Largo Police Department “responded to a call for service about a missing person. Officers learned that Steven Cozzi had left his office at 1501 S Belcher Road, leaving behind his wallet, car keys, and cell phone. However, he was never seen exiting the building and left behind his vehicle,” the release says.
Cozzi worked for Blanchard Law Firm. The firm’s management told WFLA that Cozzi “went to the bathroom during Tuesday’s work and never returned. His phone, wallet, and keys were found on his desk.”
“As a family, we are frantic with worry and numb with fear over Steven’s disappearance,” Cozzi’s mother, Lois Cozzi, told WFLA.
“During the investigation, there was a strong chemical odor in the men’s bathroom of the office and small drops of blood. A subsequent forensics investigation revealed a significant amount of blood in the same bathroom,” according to the Largo police release.

“Largo Police Detectives began looking for a suspicious person and vehicle that were seen at the office building at the same time as the victim,” the release says.
According to Pinellas County, Florida, court records, Cozzi worked for Blanchard Law Firm, which was representing former co-workers being sued by Kosowski in a pending negligence case.
Although Cozzi has not been found, the charge indicates authorities believe he is deceased. His husband, Michael Montgomery, wrote on Facebook, “Today, our greatest fears were realized. My husband and best friend were stolen from us. Steve Cozzi was the kindest, funniest, and most brilliant man I have ever met. I knew he was the one from the day that we had our first date. I only ever wanted to protect him and make him happy. I know I will see him again one day.”
“The Largo Police Department has arrested 44-year-old Tomasz Roman Kosowski and charged him with First Degree Murder regarding a missing person, Steven Cozzi,” the Largo Police Department wrote in a news release on March 26, 2023.
According to court records, the last entry in the negligence case filed by Kosowski was a motion to strike filed on March 23, 2023.
The Chronicle reports that the lawsuit centered on Kosowski’s claims that his former employer, Laufer Institute of Plastic Surgery in 2016, assigned a woman to do his insurance billing who “didn’t file claims and lied to his patients, costing him tens of thousands of dollars and resulting in negative reviews of him to be posted online.”
“Dr. K’s promising young career has essentially been obliterated,” Kosowski’s lawsuit says, according to The Chronicle. “Through no fault of his own, his career was put directly in jeopardy, and his reputation has been deeply tarnished.”
Kosowski then set up his practice, according to the Chronicle.
