ZODIAC WANNA-BE: The suspect in the serial killings spanning a 51-day period that terrorized a Tampa neighborhood used the same gun in four killings, but had "no apparent motive," the city's top law enforcement official said Wednesday. The suspect, 24-year-old Howell Emanuel Donaldson III, admitted he owned the gun that was turned over to police Tuesday and that cracked the case, but did not admit to the killings, Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan said at a news conference. "He was cooperative, but did not tell us why he was doing this," he said. The police chief said the gun, a .40-caliber Glock, was the missing evidence authorities needed to connect the killings to the images previously released from surveillance video of the suspect leaving the area. "I don't think he wanted to get caught," Dugan said, adding that Donaldson gave the gun to his co-worker at McDonald's for "safe keeping." He allegedly told the co-worker that he wanted to leave the state. Ronald Felton was the last of the four victims to be killed, and was shot on November 14. Police said the victim, a construction worker and father of three adult children, was crossing at Nebraska and Wilder when a man dressed in all black came up behind him and shot him at point blank range in the back.

A dozen Sheriff’s Office and Sarasota police detectives investigated the grisly discovery Thursday afternoon in north Sarasota. “We’re attempting to obtain all his most recent addresses and associates to find out how he met his demise,” sheriff’s Capt. Jeff Bell said. Bell would not say how Leverett died, or how detectives knew his death was a homicide. He also would not say how many days Leverett’s body had been in the woods, but reported that Leverett’s mother hadn’t seen him in a few weeks. The body was so badly decomposed that sheriff’s detectives had to identify Leverett through fingerprints. His body was discovered two blocks north of where the body of a Miami rapper was found in 1999. Sheriff’s detectives still haven’t solved the shooting death of Esco Hunter, 27.
