Here is a reddit page about the Flat Tire Murders with what appears to be some good links:

Can you tell me the source for his connection to "Cali" in NY. That was Tammy Jo Alexander from Fl.
I have posted about the Flat Tire Murders on this thread before. There is not that much information on them and they are very cold cases. In the 1970's some LE Detectives felt there was a Serial Killer committing murders coast to coast from Florida to California. Here is recent Podcast about the Flat Tire Murders case and other Floridian crimes:
Officer Carlstedt was one that had this theory about a Serial Killer crossing from one side of the US to the other:
Sgt. Erwin Carlstedt of Sonoma County, California theorized that the suspect acted alone, moved from coast to coast, and was responsible for more than 30 unsolved homicides. The Florida investigators did not comment on this theory; their suspect was known only as someone who deflated the victims’ tires, and then offered them assistance. It is thought Carlstedt's theory was referencing Ted Bundy before he had been caught.
According to police, the killer is likely very intelligent, with an above average IQ, and above average strength and prowess. The method of killing has been a combination of shooting, stabbing with an ice pick, and blunt-force trauma from hammer blows. Three of the four victims could not immediately be identified due to severe disfiguration.
