McKinnon said officials took Martinez to be medically evaluated at a local hospital before taking him to Orient Road Jail for two outstanding warrants unrelated to the Brandon case.
In the meantime, the State Attorney's office will review the case and decide if Martinez should be charged with the two homicides.
10 News spoke exclusively with Martinez's stepfather earlier Friday afternoon about his step son.
"He's a great kid. He's a great kid," Paublo Hernandez told us.
Except, Hernandez said, his stepson has mental health issues.
"He takes meds...He has mental issues...He's bi polar and other stuff."
McKinnon told 10 News Martinez "is certainly the first person" Hillsborough Sheriff's investigators are going to look into.
According to deputies, Martinez was last seen with the two murder victims, two young women- one identified as 25-year-old Lindsay Greene.
Greene, a single mother of a 4-year-old boy, lived in the townhome at Carlisle Club where both bodies were found on Thursday.
Investigators at the scene said the inside had "major fire damages", and deputies have since said they believe the killer started the fire to cover the murder.
"It was without question a double homicide," McKinnon confirmed.
Greene's neighbors said Martinez was a frequent visitor, and that he sometimes stayed with Greene for several days at a time. They also said there were many other male visitors to Greene's townhome.
"A lot of traffic in and out- different guys usually. I was surprised to hear of another female because you never see a female come and go," said Bud Smith, Greene's next-door neighbor.
During the investigation Thursday, deputies said they believe Martinez took one of the victims' cars and abandoned it in Dover. As their search for him continued into the night, Martinez was seeing an attorney with his mother and father, Hernandez told 10 News.

According to arrest records, Martinez had two outstanding warrants not related to this case for Home Invasion Robbery and False Imprisonment.
As for Greene, neighbors said the young single mother had just graduated from school on Monday, and had plans to work as a dental hygienist, excited about rebuilding her life for herself and her son.
