New documents released in Delmer Smith case….Updated: March 8, 2010 09:26 AM EST...SARASOTA COUNTY – Newly released police documents accuse Delmer Smith III of stalking his victims for week before the attacks.
Smith is charged with four home invasions in Sarasota County, including the rape of a Siesta Key woman and the murder of Kathleen Briles of Terra Ceia. The rape victim told detectives the man who burst into her condo on Whispering Sands Drive knew her name, the type of car she drove and that she owned a safe and a gold watch.
But neighbors in Terra Ceia, where Kathleen Briles was murdered in her home, say they don’t believe Briles was stalked. “If there was a car anywhere parked, anywhere, we would know it,” says neighbor Jim Moden.
Delmer Smith, 38, has been charged with four Sarasota County home invasions and the murder of a woman in Terra Ceia — and is the primary suspect in at least 11 break-ins across the region.
In regards to the aatack on Siesta Key at the Whispering Sands condo (on the 12th floor) by ex-con thug Delmer Smith; News of the attack, especially that someone could get to the 12th floor of a condo and not arouse suspicion, was particularly concerning to detectives.
“They were all bad, but this one stood out,” said one local law enforcement official who asked not to be named because the investigation of other cases is ongoing. “We started to wonder: ‘How did he pull this off?’” The reports in the Siesta Key case appear to confirm the theory that the serial home invader stalked victims prior to attacking, or did he ?????
All of the home invasion attacks in Sarasota and the one in Terra Ceia (not counting the Siesta Key attack) are/were at single family homes, Osage Terrace, Bougainvillea Street, Carmilfra Drive and Jo An Drive, no apartment complexes were targeted, and for the most part all of these home contained middle aged white females home alone.
All of the street address’s, Osage Terrace, Bougainvillea Street, Carmilfra Drive, Terra Ceia and Jo An Drive are in middle to upper middle income neighborhoods, no cars are parked on the street near any of the homes, evryone parks in his or her driveawy, so Delmer Smith would have had a very difficult time in “stalking” or doing surveillance on his female victims.
Any strange vehicles would have been observed by the neighbors. I have driven all of the roads to and around the locations mentioned and I work 52 weeks a year as a private investigator doing surveillance from my vehicle, none of these address’s would be a good location for any type of prolonged surveillance !
In the Carmilfra Drive attack Delmer Smith is reported to have said to his female victim (as she was tied up and gagged) that "he had a partner who was watching her", he also made comments to this unseen partner to the effect that “she is cooperating”. Who was/is Delmer Smith's partner in crime ?
In the Siesta Key attack at the Whispering Sands condominium in May/09, Delmer Smith knew intimate details about her life: Her name. That she drove a Corvette. That she had a safe, even the type of gold watch she wore, how did dirtbag ex-con Delmer Smith obtain all of this inside information ? Who is/was helping Delmer Smith ?
Investigators in Venice initially questioned Delmer Smith following a bar fight. Although he was not arrested or implicated at that point, police chief Julie Williams said Smith’s demeanor resonated with officers. “The violence in the bar fight in our community was notable,” she said.” We never had anyone that violent over nothing in a bar fight.”
As I have said from the start of the Sarasota Home invasions, someone had access to a computer database of the who, what, where, how many, race, income and age of individuals living in certain homes. Delmer Smith is not computer smart he is a street thug who did 15 years in a Federal prison run by the violent Aryan Brotherhood gang.
The Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Terre Haute, Indiana, is a medium security facility housing male inmates with an adjacent satellite prison camp that houses minimum security male offenders. It is part of the Terre Haute Federal Correctional Complex (FCC).
The Aryan Brotherhood, according to the U.S. Department of Justice Web site, is a white supremacist prison gang that boasts about 15,000 members in and out of jail, they rule the Federal prison system. Aryan Brotherhood members make up less than one-tenth of one percent of the nation’s prison inmate population, yet the white power gang is responsible for 18% of all prison murders, according to the FBI.
The violent use of baseball bats, bricks and a cast iron typewritter to beat and kill some of Delmer Smith’s victims and his disgusting sexual attacks using the blunt end of a screwdriver give evidence to his Aryan Brotherhood training in prison.
