    Nancy Grace is worried tonight on her show that this serial killer could switch over and kill a drunk high school or college girl there in Daytona on Spring Break this week.

    possible Serial Killer in Daytona Beach

    MAYBE he has killed prostitutes thus far because they're an " easy kill."
    But what about OUR children going on Spring Break, many to Daytona Beach?

    Since Christmas 2005 an unknown serial killer has murdered three women in the Daytona Beach, Florida, area. The media and the police speculate that he may kill again this month, noting that he killed in December, January, and February. He may, unfortunately, feel the need to meet this terrible expectation. The believed interval between the three known murders is 19 days, 41 days, and 23 days, or an average of three weeks between homicides. If this is any kind of pattern for the killer, he could be expected to strike again as soon as this week.

    The three known victims are local women, who worked along Ridgewood Avenue. They may have abused drugs and worked as prostitutes or otherwise raised their victim profiles to put them at high risk.


    The body of Laquetta Gunther, age 45, was discovered December 26, 2005, in a narrow alley between two buildings off Beach Street. Found in a fetal position, partially clothed, she had been shot in the head. Julie Green, 34, was found January 1, 2006, lying facedown in a ditch at a construction site off LPGA Boulevard. Investigators have not revealed whether Green, like Gunther, was partially clothed. She had been shot. And, on the afternoon of February 24, shortly after 1 p.m., police were tipped by a man, calling from a pay phone, as to the whereabouts of the body of Iwana Patton. Patton, 35, was found on a dirt road just off Williamson Boulevard. She, too, had been shot. Having identified the mystery caller who led investigators to the body, police no longer consider him a suspect.

    Many questions arise about the unknown serial killer who has murdered these three women. But most vacationers and students arriving here for spring break, seeking the beautiful sand and sun of Daytona’s beaches, have no idea that this murderer may be out looking for his next victim. Will the killer strike again, and if so, will he seek his next victim from the ranks of crack addicts and streetwalkers? Or will he look for a new type of victim? Because at least two of his three known victims abused drugs and were prostitutes, other women with similar backgrounds would be an obvious choice for this killer. But, will he continue to seek victims living and functioning on the edge of society? They are easy victims for him. Or will he change his MO to frustrate police efforts to identify him? These are just a few of the questions that profilers and investigators are racing to answer, before another woman is killed by this cold, faceless, relentless killer.



    Many prostitutes choose to work on the street rather than as call girls. Some say this gives them the opportunity to meet and otherwise consider their “client” before they go off on a “date.” Others choose to work on the street because they can set their own hours or simply because they are so addicted to drugs or so sick that they cannot find employment with an escort service. One report theorizes that over 1,000,000 American women (and, we know, men and children, as well) have worked as prostitutes. While streetwalkers are believed to represent only 20% of the “working” prostitutes in this country, 70% report that they have been physically and sexually assaulted, some reporting such assaults on a weekly basis. At least 50,000 prostitutes are believed to be HIV positive, with some cities reporting that over half of all prostitutes test positive for HIV.

    Oh. I looked and looked and didn't see anything in a search.
    IF it's here, it's been pretty well hidden, OR I need new contact lens.
    I'm sorry. I thought it was alarming, considering the time frame of Spring Break.. and last year's probable murder of Natalee Holloway.

    I'm very worried too. Young girls vs. worn out hookers. He would go for the pretty young things in a heartbeat. Scares the crap out of me that Daytona is not saying more to warn people away.

    And think of all of the women who were there for Speed Weeks in February.

    Could This Be Related?

    Name: Kristin Dunn


    Date Found: 09/19/2004Location Found: On the side of South Sparkman Avenue near Orange City

    The victim's naked body was found on the south side of South Sparkman Avenue near West Gardenia Drive. Investigators believe the victim's body had been there for less than 12 hours before its discovery and that the victim had been killed elsewhere before the body was left on the side of the road. The victim was known to frequent the Daytona Beach area. Investigators traced the victim's movements during the night before her death to the Lido Beach Motel on South Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach, where she was seen leaving in a blue, 1993 Chevrolet Astro van driven by a male friend of the victim.

    1993 Chevrolet Astro van


    I wonder if they checked that out? Or if her case was ever resolved? Where did you find that?
