Comments & ID Thoughts

This is a screenshot of the original which I will also post, this is zoomed in, I didnt get close enough to count eyes, but I have his dead body, definitely has fine hairs on legs, and a perfect violin with neck of violin towards body. It came quickly across my kitchen counter trying to sorta stay out of site, smart!! Hid between bottles on my stove, figured out I was right there ready to end him and he carefully climbed around the bottle and took off super fast, hid under a step, he was not aggressive which makes me feel a teeny bit bad, but he is in many pieces now, I went kinda crazy making sure he was dead. I'm guessing it to be a brown recluse but looking for as close to definite with identity via pics.
Thanks in advance!

Yeah, looks like a Brown Recluse to me. A way to distinguish from a similar species is the distribution of three pairs of eyes. I can’t quite tell from the photo but I suspect you are correct.
