Chitwood was the police chief for the Daytona Beach Police Department at the time of the fourth murder.

Families of these four women have waited 12 to 14 years to hear more on this case.

The four women's bodies were each found a mile or two apart from each other in Daytona Beach and Holly Hill.

All had been shot in the head using the same type of gun, a .40 caliber Smith and Wesson.

All their bodies had been left in remote and wooded areas.
