Serial Rapist and Killer Delmer Smith III Convicted of Murder Again in Sarasota But it All Should Have Never Happened

HERALD TRIBUNE WRITES: Delmer Smith III, 47, was convicted Friday of one count of second-degree murder and two counts of sexual battery with a deadly weapon. Smith killed Georgann Smith at her home between April 5 and 6, 2009, by beating her with a baseball bat and forcefully penetrating her with a foreign object, according to his arrest report. He was a stranger to the victim. While the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office started its investigation in 2009, it wasn’t until 2017 when Smith was identified as the suspect through DNA analysisSmith is already on death row for the 2013 murder of Kathleen Briles in Manatee County. In 2011, he was sentenced to life in prison for armed home invasion in Sarasota.


10 NEWS: “He pummeled these women into the ground,” Bill Warner, a private investigator who’s followed the case since 2009, explained. “He beat them with bricks, baseball bats, whatever he could get his hand on. It was over-the-top violent.” PI Bill Warner became interested in the case because the attacks happened near his office and home. “It was going nowhere,” he explained. “Nobody knew who this guy was.” Then, the big break came. Smith was first convicted for the home invasions, then the murder of Kathleen Briles. Finally, in 2017, new DNA evidence connected the man already on death row to Georgann's murder. A jury found him guilty Friday, June 14, 2019.
Serial Rapist and Killer Delmer Smith III Convicted of Murder Again in Sarasota But it All Should Have Never Happened. The FBI failed miserably to protect Georgann Smith and Kathleen Briles, 'they didn't have to die'. The FBI did not process and enter the DNA of Delmer Smith III when he left Federal prison in September of 2008 to a national data base, he was traceable as he was on Federal Parole and had to register when he first came to Bradenton. The FBI had Delmer Smith's III DNA on or about the end of September 2008, if they had processed his DNA sample the Sarasota County Sheriff Dept would have been able to match up Delmer Smith III to his first rape on February 22nd 2009 in Sarasota and put a stop to his 'reign of terror'. Delmer Smith's III DNA sample wasn’t tested and processed by the FBI until September 2009, a full year later and after Delmer Smith III had murdered two women and raped at least 6 other women.
Georgann Smith & Kathleen Briles Did Not Have to Die if FBI Had Processed Serial Killer Delmer Smith III DNA Sample From Prison. In my opinion and from an extensive criminal background search of Delmer Smith III I do believe he is a serial killer in addition to being a serial rapist. I believe that Delmer Smith III has killed at least one other woman before he was sent to the Federal Pen in 1995 for Bank Robbery in Detroit. Delmer Smith III, DOB 7/19/1971, is a career criminal whose life in crime started as a youth. His first conviction occurred when he was only 14 for the rape of a woman who was in her 30's at a car wash in Detroit MI. He would have murdered his victim but she managed to get away after he had stuffed her into the truck of a car. He, Delmer Smith III, later was arrested as an adult at age 18 in 1989 for home invasion robbery and spent 18 months in jail. In 1991 and in 1995 when Delmer Smith III was 24 he had convictions for Bank Robbery in Detroit MI: BANK ROBBERY WITH FORCE & VIOLENCE, ASSAULT WITH OR USE OF A DEADLY WEAPON AND USE OF FIREARM TO COMMIT A FELONY.  
Dr. Hyman Eisenstein, a psychologist who studied Delmer Smith III said he suffered physical, emotional and sexual abuse as a mixed-race child, mother white, father black. Delmer Smith raped and beat as many as 10 women from Sarasota to Bradenton and Terra Ceia Fl where he killed Kathleen Briles. Detectives say DNA evidence links convicted murderer Delmer Smith to the slaying of Georgann Smith a Sarasota woman in 2009. Smith, who is already on death row for the Aug. 3, 2009, murder of Kathleen Briles in her Terra Ceia home, was now facing new charges of murder and sexual battery in the death of Georgann Smith a Sarasota woman four months before Briles was killed, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office announced. The two attacks were among at least a dozen authorities say Delmer Smith committed over several months in 2009 in Manatee and Sarasota counties.

Dr. Eisenstein said Delmer Smith III suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder, low-level mental retardation and brain damage, as well as anti-social behavior disorder and intermittent explosive disorder. Sarasota Serial Rapist and Murderer Delmer Smith III Had Access to a Computer And An Email Address While in Federal Prison. Delmer Smith III spent 13 years in a Federal prison for armed bank robbery before his parole and, while behind bars, became pen pals with a woman who lived in Bradenton and others. Upon his release from the TERRE HAUTE FCI September 16th 2008, Delmer Smith III had over $5,000 in his prison fund, donations from lonely women all over the USA who had been in email contact with this dirtbag. Delmer Smith III was paroled from federal prison after 13 years on the Bank Robbery conviction on September 16th 2008 and the first thing he did was purchase a GPS even though he did not have a car at the time, he was 37, and moved to Bradenton Fl to marry a woman in her 60's sight unseen, a prison pen pal, and then he continued his reign of terror while on Federal parole in South West Florida. This access to a computer appears to be how Delmer Smith III hooked up with the older woman in Bradenton Fl and to whom he married within a few weeks after his release on 9/16/2008. 
 
"I think Delmer Smith III is a sociopath. I don’t think he has any feelings of guilt or remorse,'' said the husband of murdered Kathleen Briles, Dr. James Briles. "He doesn’t care about anyone but himself." Delmer Smith III is a mad dog rapist who had roamed the Sarasota-Bradenton area for over 7 months robbing, beating, raping and murdering defenseless women while his DNA sample sat in a FBI lab waiting to be processed, outrageous. Murder of Georgann Smith and Kathleen Briles by rapist Delmer Smith III could have been prevented if FBI processed his DNA sample after his release from the TERRE HAUTE FCI on September 16th, 2008. Delmer Smith III Florida crime spree in Sarasota and Bradenton that included beatings, rapes and murders may have continued on for additional months, if not for the Sarasota Sheriff Dept, because the FBI failed to process the DNA sample obtained from former federal prison inmate Delmer Smith III when he left the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Terre Haute, Indiana. The FBI had Delmer Smith III DNA on or about the end of September 2008, if they had processed his DNA sample the Sarasota County Sheriff Dept would have been able to match up Delmer Smith III to his first rape on February 22nd 2009 in Sarasota and put a stop to his soon to become 'reign of terror'. Delmer Smith's III DNA sample wasn’t tested until September 2009, a full year later and after Delmer Smith III murdered two women and raped at least 6 other women. Delmer Smith III was finally arrested by the Sarasota County Sheriff's Dept on October 5th, 2009 for the home invasions based on other evidence than his DNA. The FBI failed miserably to protect Georgann Smith and Kathleen Briles, 'they didn't have to die'.

Over 8 Years Ago I Posted Numerous Articles That Implicated Delmer Smith in The Rape And Murder of Georgann Smith With a Baseball Bat In Sarasota, Now He Has Been Charged. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Delmer Smith, now 46, beat a 34-year-old woman to death with a baseball bat in her Sarasota County home in April 2009 during a string of home invasion robberies. He also sexually battered the victim, Georgann Smith with foreign objects that were left inside her body.
OBITUARY Smith, Georgann Lee Nov. 18, 1971 - April 6, 2009 Georgann Lee Smith, 37, of Sarasota, formerly of Millersport, Ohio, died April 6, 2009. Services will be at 3 pm Sunday Bee Ridge Baptist Church Burial will be Suttons Bay Mich.
LETTER FROM Georgann Smith’s sister on July 27th, 2011They linked Delmer Smith to being in my sister’s (Georgann Smith) home. I received a call earlier in the day and it was confirmed by the Detectives. The bad part is they can’t link him to her murder, because there is no evidence to prove it. The Lead detective re-submitted a piece of evidence to forensics to have a special test performed and that was the link. They found his DNA! I just don’t understand why we have to go through this. Yes, I’m very happy that he is behind bars, but I want his name in BIG BOLD LETTERS on a newspaper clipping saying that he was the one who BRUTALLY MURDERED Georgann, with a beautiful picture of her off to the left. She never received any coverage for her murder. Only that they identified the body of a deceased woman. That is horrible! I wish someone would step in and do an article on her because she was truly an angel. The State Attorney will not charge Delmer Smith because of lack of evidence, so we still do not have JUSTICE! The only justice there is is that he will never leave prison because of everything else he’s done to all the other women! NOW THERE WILL BE JUSTICE FOR GEORGANN SMITH!
October 24, 2009 Justice for Georgann Lee Smith in Sarasota Fl, Ex-Con Delmer Smith III Raped And Beat Georgann Lee Smith To Death With A Baseball Bat, Delmer Smith is a Serial Rapist and Killer, from the beginning of Delmer Smith’s reign of terror in the Sarasota-Bradenton area I had been adamant about his link to the murder and rape of Georgeann Smith on JoAnn Drive in Sarasota Fl. Sarasota Bradenton Home Invasion Intruder Made a Mistake with GeorgAnn Smith, She Was Young, Not the Home Owner and a Black Belt in Karate. Posted: April 25, 2009 GeorgAnn Smith, 37, had recently moved into the house on Jo-An Drive where she was murdered by Sarasota-Bradenton Home invader Delmer Smith, she was renting the house and was not the listed property owner (an elderly couple). GeorgAnn Smith was not the typical victim of Sarasota-Bradenton Home Invader Delmer Smith, she was 30 to 40 years younger than the previous and subsequent victims, she was not listed as the owner of the house and she had a black belt in karate with multiple advanced degrees, 6th to 10th. Sarasota-Bradenton Home Invader Delmer Smith had his hands full with GeorgAnn Smith, she was a fighter, she was not going to take it lying down, she more than likely pulled off his mask, she was a black belt in karate trained in self defense but going up against an armed intruder who obviously had no qualms about maiming, or now, killing a woman. GeorgAnn Smith was a hero, she fought back against Delemr Smith, it may have cost her life, but there is no second guessing the situation, she was attacked and she defended herself, no black belt in karate (an expert in martial arts) is going to accept a hit in the head and possible sexual abuse without fighting back, it is just that simple.

Serial rapist Delmer Smith's partner during his reign of terror was sex offender James Cellecz who is now deceased. Apparently James M. Cellecz died on August 2nd 2018, he was 40, "dead men tell no tales". Back on Monday, June 03, 2013 Sarasota Serial Rapist Delmer Smith and his Partner James Cellecz were both Back in Jail Again. James M. Cellecz, DOB 3/21/1978, had been arrested by Manatee County Sheriff Department for violation of probation, he sold (pawned) stolen goods obtained by his rapist/killer buddy Delmer Smith who was sentenced to death for the murder of Kathleen Briles in Terra Ceia Fl. Delmer Smith sold and traded stolen goods to Red Barn Flea Market Dealer and Registered Sex Offender James Cellecz. Cellecz ended up doing 9 months on the dealing in stolen property charge. Delmer Smith was convicted of the violent murder of Kathleen Briles in Terra Ceia, Manatee County Florida, he beat her to death with an antique cast iron sewing machine. Dr. James Briles found his wife, Kathleen, 49, bound and bludgeoned to death in their Terra Ceia home on Aug. 3, 2009. She had numerous pieces of jewelry missing, including a gold necklace with a V-shaped pendant with diamond baguette diamond stones.

One day later, some of Kathleen Briles belongings were pawned at Pawn Star LLC, 4524 14th St. W., by 32-year-old James Cellecz, who was sentenced in April for providing false information to a pawn broker (he had only done 9 months and was back out). James Cellecz was arrested three months after pawning the items. According to sheriff’s reports, Cellecz told detectives that Delmer Smith III, who is charged in Briles’ slaying, had given him Briles’ jewelry to pawn a day after her body was found. James Cellecz listed his “Day Job”on arrest records in 2009 as working for TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATES as a COMPUTER TECH, what access did he have to women’s private information. The number one item stolen in all of the Sarasota-Bradenton home invasions was laptop computers. How did Delmer Smith know that only middle aged women, living alone, where in the homes when he attacked, who tipped him off, was it James Cellecz? Sex offender computer tech James Cellecz must have been in on the home invasions, targeting homes, why else would Delmer Smith split the 'take' with him?  
James Cellecz, a registered sex offender who is now dead, had preciously entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors in Sarasota on drug and failure to register charges, in exchange for testimony on several violent cases involving mad dog rapist Delmer Smith. In my opinion James Cellecz had a lot to do with the actual targeting of the women attacked by Delmer Smith. How did Delmer Smith know where multiple middle aged women were living and home alone, sex offender computer tech James Cellecz must have been in on the home invasions, targeting homes, why else would Delmer Smith split the 'take' with him?
