Then there are two of the victims here that are linked by forensic evidence by by ballistic. Evidence says that taught us all four of these victims together. The the fifth victim if you will the one who he has being lit de we we don't hang out the forensic evidence right now. Let the Daytona Beach police department the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. All of these folks are working with your state attorney's office. To see we will leave or eliminate or don't.
