A serial killer is on the loose in Daytona Beach, police say.
The same person who likely shot and killed three women two years ago is being blamed for another homicide this month.
Police found the most recent victim, Stacey Gage, 30, in a wooded area. They did not say how she was killed or why they believe her killer is also behind the slayings of Laquetta Gunther, Julie Green and Iwana Patton, whose bodies were found in an alley, at a construction site and along a dirt road.
A police profiler said after the first three killings that he believed the assailant was a "normal, clean-cut" person using violence as a way of dealing with "casual stress in his life." The profiler guessed a close acquaintance in the killer's life "may become a victim in the future."
Just an uneducated guess here, but the first thing I thought when I processed this was: What if Stacey Gage was that close acquaintance, and the killer finally made her a victim?
