    The police chief said familial DNA would only be used in major crimes, like the serial killer case.

    He believes that if approved, it could be in use within a year.

    Chitwood said the person who came up with the software is making it available to FDLE for free.

    But he said the clock is ticking.

    "You have a killer on the loose who has killed four women, who is not gonna stop," Chitwood said. "We may be in a cooling off period here. But if we have learned anything in the history of this country with serial killers, they'll continue until they get caught."

    Memorial to serial killer victim disappears

    DAYTONA BEACH -- A memorial erected in honor of the first victim of the city's serial killer likely was stripped away by city workers.

    The wreath, candles, flowers and colored posters that once flapped in the wind between two small buildings to mark the murder of Laquetta Gunther on North Beach Street have been missing for the last several weeks, said Gunther's best friend Stacey Dittmer.

    Gunther's body was found on Dec. 26, 2005, wedged between two buildings -- 705 and 703 N. Beach. She had been shot in the head with a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber Sigma Series VE, police said. The Medical Examiner's Office however said Gunther had been killed on Christmas Eve.

    Editorial: FBI, police should mine databases to find serial killers

    By doggedly combing through state and federal computer files and aggressively filing state Freedom of Information Act requests with local police departments, Scripps Howard News Service (SHNS) reporter Thomas Hargrove created a database of 185,000 unsolved murders committed since 1980. Crime experts say it is the most complete accounting of homicide victims ever assembled in the United States.

    A search of that database turned up alarming clusters of unsolved killings of women across the nation that strongly suggest the work of serial killers. The SHNS study focused on communities where police failed to solve at least three-quarters of murders of women of similar age killed by similar methods. The reason for singling out women in the study is that they represent 70 percent of all known serial murder victims.

    The search turned up 161 clusters in which 1,247 murdered women met the criteria.

    I'm new to this forum, so if I am not following protocol please forgive me. I've been following this case for some time and didn't see some of these articles included in this thread.


    Are 19 slayings along I-4 the work of serial killers?

    The first body was found the night after Christmas in 2005.

    LaQuetta Mae Gunther lay in a fetal position, partially naked, on the floor of a dark Daytona Beach alley — a bullet hole in the back of her head.

    Since then, three more women with known criminal histories have been found slain execution-style in this Central Florida beachside city best known for its love of motorcycles, auto racing and sunbathing.

    When the fourth victim was discovered, Daytona Beach police knew they were looking for a serial killer.

    According to the FBI, the four killings are among 28 in Florida that are 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.

    <modsnip>

    Sheriff's offices in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Volusia and Polk — ones that service the I-4 area in the region — said they have no serial-killer cases. Police agencies in Orlando and Kissimmee said they don't either.

    Only Daytona Beach police acknowledge they are working a serial-killer case.

    The other Daytona Beach victims are:

    •A construction worker in January 2006 discovered the body of Julie Ann Green, 34, on an access road off LPGA Boulevard, a remote area near Interstate 95.

    •The body of Iwana Patton, 35, was found in February 2006 in a wooded area just east of I-95. The body of the fourth victim, Stacey Gage, was found in January 2008 near an abandoned church less than a mile from I-4.

    Other recent murders in Central Florida appear to fit a profile laid out by the bureau's probe:

    •The dismembered body of Regan Kendall, 48, was found near Osceola Parkway and Boggy Creek Road in Osceola County in July.

    •And deputies in July found the naked body of Kelly Lanthorne, 37, behind the Courtyard Villas apartments, near South Orange Blossom Trail in Orange County.

    If anyone is interested, I have been tracking female victims of unsolved homicides from Tampa to Daytona and there are many. I'll post links if anyone would like to look into this further.

    I'm not saying her disappearance is related but it could be:

    I have not seen mention of Chasity's disappearance on this forum at all.

    Chasity is included on my list of unsolved homicides in Florida - I checked and can't find any new info on the case - though it does appear a candlelight vigil was held in her honor earlier this month. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family and friends as they continue to search for her.

    I'm from Daytona Beach and I know the area that she was last seen... not a good place at all. This is considered one of the "bad" parts of town so the outcome of Chasity's case probably isn't good.

    On January 17, 2011, the remains of a woman were found in a black trash bag on Airport Blvd in Ormond Beach. The body had been placed there within the previous six months, and was described as a white female, 20-45, 110-115 lbs, with light brown or dirty blonde hair.

    Police thought the body might be 49 year old Pamela Will

    This is quoted from a post in the Unidentified forum

    Pamela Will
    January 21, 2011
    Will, whose 49th birthday is Sunday, is listed as 5 feet 2 inches tall and 130 pounds with brown hair, green eyes and a light complexion. Her 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.

    She was reported missing about two weeks after that. In November, South Daytona police put out a flier describing Will as jobless, homeless and "in a depressed state of mind."

    Court records show she has been arrested several times in Volusia County and recently served jail time for prostitution.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/w/will_pamela.html

    In the last article, LE was pretty sure the remains would turn out to be Will. I can't find any updates to confirm or deny. One report from January 23, 2011 says her mother submitted a DNA sample.

    The mother of a missing South Daytona woman, Pamela Will turned over DNA evidence to see if the body found in Ormond Beach is her daughter's.
    http://www.cfnews13.com/article/news...t-Orange-woman

    That article is actually about Laurel Lea Richards, a young woman missing from Port Orange since February 1, 2010. One article says police believe she left her home to purchase drugs in Palm Coast. One year ago, police said they believe she was picked up from her home by someone she knew. On the evening she went missing, a friend received strange phone call from her phone. The caller's name was Jamal, and the call was placed in New Port Richey.

    Laurel Lea Rogers
    Investigators said they believe someone picked up Lauren [sic] Rogers, since her car was broken down, and that person or people are preventing her from coming home.
    http://www.wesh.com/r/26681800/detail.html

    Her family just held a vigil to mark the two year anniversary of her disappearance.

    All three found nude and shot with a .40 caliber weapon

    January 3, 2008 -- Stacey Gage, 30, found in wooded area along Hancock Blvd. It's believed her murder occurred in December 2007 and was "eerily similar" to the first three murders, according to LE reports.

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

    September 8, 2010 -- PamelaWill

    January 15, 2011 -- Chastity Starr

    January 17, 2011 -- Unidentified female body found in Ormond Beach

    Of the four murderd women and three missing, all were known to abuse drugs and/or work as prostitutes. They were also mothers and daughters.

    With the exception of Pamela Will, the missing and murdered dates are between December and February. I don't know if that's significant, but it's hard to overlook.

    The article says that Will's identity was confirmed a month ago, but a bureaucratic snafu kept her family from being informed until last week.

    ETA: Apologies to ScorpiosDaughter. I didn't see that she had already posted this update.
