    The first known victim was 45-year-old Laquetta Gunther, who was found in an alley on December 26, 2005. She had been shot in the back of the head. DNA was recovered from the scene.[2] The second victim was 34-year-old Julie Green, found January 14, 2006. She had also been shot in the back of the head. No DNA was recovered, but tire tracks were found. The tires were for a 2003 Taurus or Sable and in fact the exact tires were later found.[2] Just over a month later, on February 24, 2006 police found the body of Iwana Patton, 35, on a dirt road. She had been shot, but not in the back of the head, and possibly had struggled with her killer. DNA was recovered, along with a shell casing that allowed police to identify the make and model of pistol used. (.40-caliber Smith & Wesson Sigma Series VE.)[2] Ballistics from recovered bullets and recovered DNA matched.[1][3] Authorities received an anonymous telephone call describing the location of Patton's body, but the caller was eventually identified and questioned, and is not a suspect in the killings. All three women are believed to have worked as sex workers in the Daytona Beach area.[1] Police believe the victims voluntarily accompanied their killer, possibly in a vehicle, and were subsequently murdered and dumped in the same area of Daytona Beach. The killer did not attempt to conceal the bodies.

    The remains of Stacey Charlene Gage, 30, were found on January 2, 2008. She had been shot in the head.[2] Police believe she was killed December 11, 2007. Police have further stated that the circumstances surrounding the case are eerily similar to the three previous unsolved homicides. Unlike the first three victims, Gage did not have a criminal record involving prostitution. However, she did have a history of drug problems. The van Gage was driving the night she disappeared was later recovered.[3]

    I can’t find the name identified as the Palm Beach woman. I’m relatively sure someone will come along and fill us in. There are a lot of observant WSers on here that recall details so well.

    Old article about Rachel:
    _______________

    Mar 11, 2016

    [...]

    Rachel Bey’s body was found by workers about 50 feet from the road on Beeline Highway near Pratt Whitney Road Monday. The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office did not say how long it believed the 32-year-old’s body had been there, but it ruled her death a homicide.

    [...]

    Aliahu Bey, who was the only child between his parents who met in the military before his father died, said his mother had another son, then adopted two girls and then Rachel when she was 3 months old.

    Though the family is originally from North Carolina, it moved to Port Salerno in Martin County in 1989. Growing up, the family was often around nursing homes and Rachel was always first to volunteer and help out, Bey said. As a teen, she got into drugs and other problems, which Bey said was hard to watch.

    “It’s the typical story: a kid hanging out with the wrong group of people,” he said.

    When Bey joined the Army and left Florida, he said he saw his sister change for the better, including becoming a certified nursing assistant working in the home-care and nursing home industry.

    Though most of the family has moved out since then, Bey said Rachel stayed behind, getting into deeper trouble and drugs.

    “We all wanted to rescue and steal her away,” he said. “But we knew that choice had to be hers. And she wanted to have that kind of change.”

    Robert Hayes, 37, was booked Sunday for the 2016 murder of 32-year-old Rachel Bey, whose body was found 50 feet off a highway near Jupiter, Florida, according to the Palm Beach Post.

    The slayings occurred between 2005 and 2007, and in each case the women were found with a .40 gunshot wound to the back of the head. Two of them were found with the killer’s semen in their heads along with the bullet from the gun.
