This thread was started to identify possible victims of an active serial killer or killers currently working in Florida.

Please know this thread was started for a number of reasons:

1. LE in Daytona Beach acknowledged an active serial killer was at work beginning in late 2005. To catch up on that open investigation, please see the following WS thread:

http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58261&highlight=daytona


You can also review media reports at the following links:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11929741/ns/msnbc_tv-the_abrams_report/t/daytona-beach-serial-killer-set-strike-again/

http://www.news-journalonline.com/special/daytonadeaths/

http://daytona.crimeshadows.com/


http://www.amw.com/fugitives/brief.cfm?id=76697


2. In addition to the above murders, it was reported in January 2010 that according to the FBI, the four Daytona Beach killings were among 28 in Florida that remain unsolved and connected to serial killings that the bureau suspects were committed by long-haul truckers.

Those include 19 deaths along the Interstate 4 corridor between Tampa and Daytona Beach, although all but one local law-enforcement agency denies any serial-killer cases on its books.

I began tracking potential victims and came up with a long list of possible victims that would fit easily into a serial killer scenario, including the Daytona Beach victims and have compiled the following possible victims. With additional high profile missing persons cases in neighboring Orlando, other WS members expressed interest in pursuing this angle separately from those other threads....so here we are.

Below is a list of additional unsolved homicides with similar victimology, such as either prostitution and/or drug use, though it's noteworthy that some of these women had nothing to do with prostitution nor drug abuse but instead were dealing with family issues or the complete opposite, doing well in life with being a student or professional - but again as far as I'm aware these cases have not been solved:

Yes, but you can check with a mod and see if we should be in the Parking Lot, if so, they can move it.

I will check other missing persons sites and see if we can get a handle on how many woman are missing or murdered in FL. We may end up putting them in different catagories but we should at least have them listed here.

The UD woman from Sarasota, I remember this case. She had a fractured nose at some point and she had a old fractured wrist. I wonder is LE checked for any domestic battery records or shelters or any hospital records for a woman with these types of injuries? It could be a husband, bf, or pimp that did this to her in the past.

Has anyone ruled out Dexter Morgan?

(Not trying to offend, just bring a little levity to the situation).

I would think that Florida, with the Everglades, would be a haven for serial killers, just as the Pac NW seems to be popular because of all the remote locations. Ted Bundy liked both areas.

I just went to the Charley Project site and put in FL and it has 770 missing people listed and that does not include Michelle Parker or Sandra Lemire. It goes back to the 60 or 70's not sure, but do we know how far back we want to go? Just woman correct and what age range should we include. Once I get a list with what we want, we can narrow it down.

I think this listing is a good idea. I would personally g back to the Late 50's, where as an late teen who started killing may still be alive.
I would like to find a list like this of the Napa Valley murders other than the ones I have to find at the cold case site. I think any unsolved case should at least be on a list like this regardless if they connect or not. Good work here, very interesting

Here are the ages of the women I've tracked so far - I also included race in case that is relevant to the investigation. The homicides have occurred from 2005 to present:

LaQuetta Mae Gunther/ white, 45
Julie Ann Green/ white, 34
Iwana Patton/ black, 35
Stacy Gage/ white, 30


Regan Kendall/ white, 48
Kelly Lanthorne/ white, 37

Mamie Jameka Thomas/black, 18
Sharon Elson/black, 45

Lisa Ann Mowrey/ white, 18
Darlene Young/ white, 41
Melissa Easterling/ white, 32
Lacy Thistlewood/ white, 21
Katharine Zafra / white, 36
Melissa McCarthy Comiskey/ white, 27
Nicole Rose Scott/ white, 29

I've only researched this from 2005 forward, after Daytona Beach was alerted to a serial killer. However far back we go, maybe we could group the homicides and missing separately within decades - would that work?

Sharon Elson - Found July 2010 - HOLLYWOOD

http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2010-11-19/news/fl-canal-remains-identified-20101119_1_hollywood-woman-sharon-elson-canal

I believe I have tracked additional victims but will need to go back and find that research.

I want to comment on the above case, mainly because I grew up 4 blocks from this area where she was found in the 50's and 60's. I've spent lots of time in this area as a child playing in the woods nearby, fishing in the canal she was found and know the layout of the area. News have reported this comment.

Two months after her disappearance, what appeared to be bones were discovered in shallow water near the canal by people fishing there.

Hollywood police divers recovered additional remains in the water July 19, as well as from an underground pipe that feeds the canal.

This has to be from under Hollywood Blvd which crosses over the canal she was found. The canal basically ends at Hollywood Blvd. where she was found. It is fed by a number of feeder streams from the other side of hollywood Blvd from Hollywood Hills Country Club.

It would seem to me if remains were found in an underground feeder pipe, they came from the country club side of Hollywood Blvd.

Now it probably doesn't mean anything and this is very far from the I-4 corridor but keep an eye out for country clubs while sleuthing these missing women.

I have to research this also, a woman's remains were found near Tampa. I think it was off of the interstate, I can't remember. She was a student and was missing for around 3 years and a motorist found the body. He got a flat and was waiting for AAA and just walked a bit up on to the grassy area and found her remains. Sorry it is so fuzzy but it was a least a yr ago I read about it.

That you for the list, I will print it out, and start some kind of spread sheet with info that will help us to group the murders. I will also look at the ones not found and put it into another spread sheet. The missing I will group by location of where they were last seen and decade, unless you think otherwise, let me know.

That sounds great - I also have other victims to list so I'll try to post the additional unsolved homicides later today.

In regards to creating a map, I do wonder how we get an exact location of where the victims were found...if anyone has ideas on that it would be helpful. Most articles refer to a general area rather than a specific address.

I also discovered a timeline program and am still working with it, but it allows you to make a timeline of events and to include images and text for each event, so I'll see if that would be helpful - it would enable a pic of the victim and also the circumstances of them missing and/or found, etc.

I'll also edit my original post for this thread and add the Scripps Howard resource info.

Thanks again everyone for your help with this research - it is very, very much appreciated!

I went though the first 100 of the 770 listed missing. There are only 14 woman that may be a fit for a stranger abduction. The rest are men and children or woman that disappeared under different circumstances, like hubby did it. I will try to do 100 a day off the list.

I will just list the names, as they run in order of the list provided in the Charley Project site, under FL. This way we can include them or exclude them and we can just copy and past the info or link with the person picture.

I'm making a list of potential additional homicide victims - taking some time because I may have to contact reporters directly whose homicide articles had not yet identified the victim and I cannot find any follow up. As I stated earlier, I contacted one journalist in Delray Beach within the last couple weeks - the police so far won't give an ID or manner of death on that case.

But while researching I came across this link that gives the names, years active, number of victims, etc. associated with Florida convicted serial killers- thought this may be helpful to possibly group victims later:

While I think it's great that this thread was created, I think it will contribute to some wild speculation linking together murders in multiple cities. In any case, I have uncovered something today that is timely given your interest in taking another look at these cases.

I am a Volusia resident and followed the Daytona serial killings. Today, they searched a back yard in Port Orange and found a body buried in the yard of a man who is in jail. He is awaiting trial because he kidnapped and raped a 9-year-old girl at a neighborhood party.

Someone just posted info about him, and it appears that he once lived in Daytona Beach in close proximity to the locations where five different bodies were found. There is a thread on a missing Port Orange woman, Laurel Rogers. I'm going to review all of the Daytona killings to refresh my memory. Then I'm going to do some digging.

There is a chance that this man, James Maxwell, is being investigated for all of these killings. It's definitely worth a look.

That map is incredible. But it looks like someone had trouble finding the exact location of Julie Green's body. I read that it was found off LPGA Boulevard near Bayberry subdivision. I did my own map, and it's nowhere near as detailed and helpful. But, according to my little map, Julie Green was found west-south-west of where Iwana Patton was found. By the way, the mapmaker has Isana instead of Iwana. If you want, you can add 1225 Kennedy Road to your map. I still need to confirm it, but I believe that is a former location for James Maxwell.

Well, it appears that James Maxwell is not the Daytona serial killer. He was incarcerated until March 2006 according to one website. I'm not comfortable relying on that source given that he lived so close to where all of the bodies were located. I hope there's a better source than the random mugshot site I found. If he was released three months earlier, it sure would make a lot of sense for the killings to start right then.

While I think it's great that this thread was created, I think it will contribute to some wild speculation linking together murders in multiple cities. In any case, I have uncovered something today that is timely given your interest in taking another look at these cases.

I am a Volusia resident and followed the Daytona serial killings. Today, they searched a back yard in Port Orange and found a body buried in the yard of a man who is in jail. He is awaiting trial because he kidnapped and raped a 9-year-old girl at a neighborhood party.

Someone just posted info about him, and it appears that he once lived in Daytona Beach in close proximity to the locations where five different bodies were found. There is a thread on a missing Port Orange woman, Laurel Rogers. I'm going to review all of the Daytona killings to refresh my memory. Then I'm going to do some digging.

There is a chance that this man, James Maxwell, is being investigated for all of these killings. It's definitely worth a look.

I do understand the concern....and I thought about this sincerely.

While I truly hope there is not more than one active serial killer in Florida, the fact remains that there is at least one serial killer that is still out there. There was a tremendous amount of coverage of the Daytona Beach serial killings, and since it's not uncommon for a serial killer to hunt, kill and dump bodies elsewhere to avoid detection, I started tracking these homicides within the victimology presented in the Daytona Beach case. What I kept finding was somewhat astounding. A report or two about these individuals and then nothing. Local LE departments are finding some of these women, confirming they were murdered and then that's it in the media.

I have traveled Florida and know how it is set up - you can move into another county quickly and without detection - so my theory, that I'm hoping is sincerely wrong, is that perhaps, and I say perhaps with emphasis, the DBSK started killing and dumping in close proximity - you know, one kill in this county, another kill in another....the drive to kill doesn't go away - so, this is how and why I started tracking these victims of homicide.

Is it possible none of these deaths are related? Absolutely. Due to that very real possibility, and since I've been researching this for several years, I admit I may have tunnel vision - so any feedback is welcome.

Thanks also for the information on the body found today - I'll look into it and the person in jail you referenced.

According to this link, James Maxwell may have had work release since it was near the end of his sentence. But he wouldn't have been living near the dump sites. So it makes it fairly improbable that he was involved in any of those incidents.

Did you put that together in a single day?

It took me a few hours. I learned from the Bond crew during Caylee's case where we mapped all the cell phone pings for every single day of phone records. I'm going back to correct the items you mentioned above. I moved Julie's location and corrected Iwana's spelling. Thanks for pointing these out. Do you think I have July in the right spot now? I seem to remember one of the articles referenced "near a hunting club" but I googled and couldn't find reference to one.

OK I added both the Kennedy Road address as well as the Brandy Hills Drive location listed in articles about the body find and rape. It would be nice to know his exact release date as these are both in very close proximity to several of the girls' locations.

Some comments here state he only served 1 1/2 years of a nine year sentence. Comments and rumor of course...

This is about his current girlfriend... links to prostitution.

Leslie Bertram said her daughter -- who has been arrested at least 10 times since 1995 according to court records and has a 3-month-old child with Maxwell -- told her that the only thing she had left was her freedom and "I'm not going to lose my freedom over him."

When the incident occurred, Joanna Bertram had already been living with Maxwell since the summer of 2011, her mother said. Joanna Bertram -- a convicted prostitute -- and Maxwell met online.

http://www.news-journalonline.com/news/local/east-volusia/2012/06/20/police-find-human-remains-behind-rape-suspects-port-orange-home.html

A convicted felon, Maxwell previously served nine years in prison for an attempted murder in 1988. He served another two-year stint starting in 1994 for burglary.

http://www.cfnews13.com/content/news/cfnews13/news/article.html/content/news/articles/cfn/2012/6/19/child_rape_suspect_s.html?cmpid=breaking

So it appears he was out in 1994 and went back to prison until 1996?

PORT ORANGE -- "Family members of a woman who disappeared from Holly Hill in 2011 say she may be the person whose remains were unearthed from the backyard of a Port Orange rape suspect.

An uncle of Chastity Starr -- a prostitute who was 27 when she was reported missing Jan. 15, 2011 -- said that investigators have been in touch with the family and told them the remains found are those of a small adult.

Port Orange police, since Monday, have been digging in the backyard of 180 Brandy Hills Drive. James Maxwell, 44, lived in the house and is awaiting trial in the rape of a 9-year-old girl who lived on his street."...


"We're not going to say who it is, but we have a good idea who it is," Monahan said at the scene. "This is a homicide investigation and James Maxwell is a suspect in that homicide."

Starr's is one of at least six cases of women with records of prostitution whose killers have not been caught.

Police in Daytona Beach believe the same person likely killed four prostitutes between 2005 and 2009.

Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood said today that Maxwell's DNA has been on file since 2000 and that it does not match DNA found on the bodies of prostitutes killed there.

Ormond Beach detectives were at the Port Orange scene on Tuesday but declined to say why.

The remains of Pamela Will, 48, were found in a ditch near Ormond Beach's airport in January 2011 and detectives in that city have been working the case. Will's last known location was Sept. 8, 2010, at the Red Carpet Inn at 1855 S. Ridgewood Ave. in South Daytona, where police said she was asked to leave for lack of payment."

"Maxwell lived at the house off and on since the 1980s, and most recently lived there with his girlfriend, her two children, the baby they share, and his teenage son, said neighbors."

""He was just a really creepy guy. Wouldn't talk a lot, just kind of stared and just the sixth sense being a mother, I think it's just what really got me. Just made me very nervous," said Carrie Lasky, who lives nearby. "Something is keeping them in that house or in that area of that property. So they know more than what they're telling the public -- which is pretty nerve-wracking for us that are waiting to see.""

"Positive identification of the body could take a month through DNA testing. However, police said they know who the person was and how they died, but refused to explain how they knew those details."

Scorpio,

Once you go though the woman list as missing, and decide from the circumstances if they should be included; I will do a search on the county records to see if they have drug or prostitution charges. Some have few details but the picture listed looks like mug shots. Some may be just missing because they wanted to flee, but I think some are foul play due to life style.

Case History
The victim was located in a shallow grave, covered with brush, 1/2 mile south of State Route 84 (Alligator Alley) on State Route 29. (I-175 by present day maps.) in the late afternoon hours of June 3, 1978.

Human head found off Alligator Ally (Identified) notice the Daytona connection.

BSO investigators got a break in the case on Wednesday, July 18, when Douglas Stein walked into the Port Orange Police Department and told a detective that two of his roommates, Trucchio and Mackey, had bragged about murdering a white female and dumping her body parts in Florida. Stein went on to provide other valuable details such as where the devious duo discarded the New York license plate taken off of the blue pick up truck Stein saw them cleaning with bleach and muriatic acid. When the Port Orange detective performed a database search, he learned Trucchio and Mackey were stopped on May 1, 2007 by a Daytona Shores police officer and Trucchio was issued two traffic citations. The vehicle they were driving, a 1988 Dodge Dakota pick-up truck bearing New York tag D-S-E-7-7-2-8, and registered to Lorraine Hatzakorzian of Mastic, New York.

For anyone who does not know who Gerald Stano was, there is a thread in the 'Serial Killers' section about him. My mother knew him personally and has long believed/suspected that a close friend (his name is unknown so far; My mother cannot remember his name and did not know him well) of his was an accomplice in some of the murders Stano was charged with. "Gerald" or whom ever was known to target prostitutes, hitchhikers, runaways and younger women. Today his accomplice would be a white male roughly around 60 -61 years of age and quite possibly living in the same area, specifically around Daytona Beach. I think it is worth the effort for law enforcement to attempt to identify this friend (or re-investigate his current situation, if they know who he is) of Stano's. Perhaps they will find some answers in doing so.

Detectives from a dozen police departments in Orange and Osceola counties will join in a task force to investigate homicide cases....

"The murderers who think they've gotten away with it should be relatively frightened," said Orange-Osceola State Attorney Lawson Lamar, who helped organize the task force with the goal of bringing together less-experienced officers with seasoned detectives to investigate homicides.

Investigators from the Apopka, Belle Isle, Edgewood, Kissimmee, Maitland, Oakland, Ocoee, Orlando, St. Cloud, Windermere, Winter Garden and Winter Park police departments will be members of the task force. The State Attorney's Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement are also participating.

They have stumbled across the remains of three missing people that I know of in the past 16 years. Tina McQuaig's car was found in a WalMart parking lot in 2000 and in 2003 her body was found less than 3 miles from my home in a wooded area. I'll try & find the other names & dates of the remains that have been found.

I stumbled onto this thread and forum by accident last night, and found this thread very interesting. I live maybe an hour inland from Daytona Beach and have wondered if there wasn't a killer on the loose, before the media actually voiced it out loud.

After reading this thread, One case came to mind where they are still looking for the young woman. While this woman isn't missing directly in the area of the map you have set up, I can tell you, she fits the profile of some of the victims, (Lacey Buenfil has been described a meth user and drifter) j
I live so close to Daytona, so I knew quickly, this is within a 50 to 70 mile radius of some of the targets on your map. I can also tell you that it is a hop skip and jump for a trucker (or anyone else) to stay off the interstate and use some of the routes that come down through the Ocala National Forest, in some of the locations the authorities have been searching. 100's of truckers use those routes every day. A link to her story can be found here http://www.dailycommercial.com/012012lacey

While waiting for approval to post, this post came to my facebook wall, The location where this young lady was found, a live and badly injured, is in the Northern Part of FL, but when googling the location, I see it is not that far from I75 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=275899752515375&set=a.155413957897289.26457.143062902465728&type=1&theater

Anyway, I just wanted to toss these 2 out there for you to see if you think one or both may be connected to the search you are working on.

Thank you,

http://www.news-journalonline.com/news/local/east-volusia/2012/08/14/police-to-investigate-port-orange-suspect-in-unsolved-killings.html

Not only are investigators looking at the possibility that Maxwell could be behind the murders of Laquetta Gunther, Julie Green, Iwana Patton and Stacey Gage, they'll also take another swipe at the unsolved cases of women who were killed or went missing in the city in the past two decades, Chitwood said.

Some might recall that I speculated about James Lee Maxwell as the possible Daytona Beach serial killer. Maxwell was just indicted on charges of murdering two other prostitutes. The problem with him as the serial killer was that online records show that he was incarcerated at the time that some of the women were killed. It also was reported that DNA found did not match his DNA. If I recall correctly, DNA was found on two of the women.

I found a site where there was information about Florida prisoners receiving furlough time toward the end of their sentences. And I thought that maybe it gave him the opportunity to commit the crimes. Of course, I didn't consider it further than that. But it looks like there might be something to it. Otherwise, they would not have considered him the possible serial killer.

The DNA issue is a difficult one to overcome. I don't buy the two killers theory. Can you think of any reason that he would have targeted women who just had sex with another individual?

I stumbled onto this thread and forum by accident last night, and found this thread very interesting. I live maybe an hour inland from Daytona Beach and have wondered if there wasn't a killer on the loose, before the media actually voiced it out loud.

After reading this thread, One case came to mind where they are still looking for the young woman. While this woman isn't missing directly in the area of the map you have set up, I can tell you, she fits the profile of some of the victims, (Lacey Buenfil has been described a meth user and drifter) j
I live so close to Daytona, so I knew quickly, this is within a 50 to 70 mile radius of some of the targets on your map. I can also tell you that it is a hop skip and jump for a trucker (or anyone else) to stay off the interstate and use some of the routes that come down through the Ocala National Forest, in some of the locations the authorities have been searching. 100's of truckers use those routes every day. A link to her story can be found here http://www.dailycommercial.com/012012lacey

While waiting for approval to post, this post came to my facebook wall, The location where this young lady was found, a live and badly injured, is in the Northern Part of FL, but when googling the location, I see it is not that far from I75 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=275899752515375&set=a.155413957897289.26457.143062902465728&type=1&theater

Anyway, I just wanted to toss these 2 out there for you to see if you think one or both may be connected to the search you are working on.

Thank you,
Becky

For anyone who does not know who Gerald Stano was, there is a thread in the 'Serial Killers' section about him. My mother knew him personally and has long believed/suspected that a close friend (his name is unknown so far; My mother cannot remember his name and did not know him well) of his was an accomplice in some of the murders Stano was charged with. "Gerald" or whom ever was known to target prostitutes, hitchhikers, runaways and younger women. Today his accomplice would be a white male roughly around 60 -61 years of age and quite possibly living in the same area, specifically around Daytona Beach. I think it is worth the effort for law enforcement to attempt to identify this friend (or re-investigate his current situation, if they know who he is) of Stano's. Perhaps they will find some answers in doing so.


There is a lot of controversy in this case. I am reading the book about him right now. I live in the area also. I think your mom may be onto something.

I was looking over this thread and seen some great compilations of information here and saw that after page three it just ends. I am new to forums and not sure how to navigate them, but was wondering if this specific thread had a continuation somewhere so I could read more. I noticed it ended in 2012 and we are now in 2014 so I would like to know more. thank you
