Bondage-Obsessed Sadistic Sociopath Serial Killer Delmer Smith Roamed Sarasota and Manatee Counties Robbing and Raping for Months using a "two half hitch knot" around their neck.

August 2nd 2019, Current Prison Processing Photo above of Bondage-Obsessed Sadistic Sociopath Serial Killer Delmer Smith, DOB 7/19/1971 who Roamed Sarasota and Manatee Counties Robbing and Raping Women for Months in 2009 shows a weary, worn out convict who knows his appointment with the needle (2 murders in Florida) in the death chamber is now on the horizon, unless some ACLU attorney tries to get him a new trial. Delmer Smith was convicted of murdering Kathleen Briles. Dr. Briles found his wife Kathleen's body when he returned home from work on August 3rd, 2009. Just a few days after the Briles murder Delmer Smith got his only speeding ticket in Florida on August 8th in Sarasota County, he did traffic school to keep points off his license and avoid the fine, Delmer was not leaving the area, Delmer was not going to run. On August 14th, 2009, just 11 days after the murder of Katleen Briles, Delmer Smith was arrested in Venice Fl for a violent bar fight, Delmer was not going to run, Delmer was going to stay in Sarasota County and continue his rampage. I have no doubt that Delmer Smith murdered at least one other woman during his violent rampage in the Detroit MI area from 1985 to 1995 that included armed home invasions, rapes, kidnapping, armed carjacking, and finally armed bank robbery that sent him to the federal prison in TERRE HAUTE FCI for 13 years. 
Some enterprising cold case detective in the Detroit metro area should recheck unsolved murders during a 10 year period from 1985 to 1995 that fit mad dog rapist Delmer Smith's M.O. and signature. Delmer Smith murdered and raped women, they were beaten around the head and face with the butt of a handgun, bound hogtie fashion with rope or extension cord using a "two half hitch knot" around her neck. The more the victim struggles to free herself the tighter the "two half hitch knot"gets. Delmer Smith beat his victims with the butt of his .380 Walther semi-automatic hand gun. The trucker's hitch knot is one of those boating knots that once you learn it, you wonder how you ever got along without it! Use this knot to cinch down a load on you car top, boat, horseback, you name it. This combination of knots allows the line to be pulled tight as a guitar string without slipping.
Delmer Smith joins Joseph P. Smith also from Sarasota on death row at Union Correctional Institution (Male) 25636 NE SR-16 Raiford, Florida, next to Florida State Prison (Starke Fl) that houses 'Old Sparky' the electric chair, still up and running. Prisoners awaiting execution on Florida's death row in Starke of Raiford may still be electrocuted at their request, go for it Delmer and Joe be a man. A rarely used Florida law gives the state no choice but to honor requests, so step up to the plate Delmer and Joe. Once sentenced, inmates have a one time option of requesting their means of execution.
'Old Sparky' was the sole means of execution in Florida from 1924 until 2000, when the Florida State Legislature, under pressure from the U.S. Supreme Court, signed lethal injection into law. Although no one has been executed in this manner since 1999, prisoners awaiting execution on Florida's death row may still be electrocuted at their request, go for it Delmer and Joe be a man. It is currently located in Florida State Prison on the outskirts of Starke, see map below. "People who wish to commit murder, they'd better not do it in the state of Florida because we may have a problem with the electric chair, LOL." "Electricity, 2000-3000 volts of electricity right through a person's brain will render you dead within seconds."
Delmer Smith set to join other Florida Serial Killers like Ted Bundy who murdered young woman all over the US and at Florida State Univ, Bobby Joe Long the serial killer who terrorized Florida killing at least 10 women and David Alan Gore who killed four teenage girls and two women, executed at Florida State Prison in Starke and Union Correctional Institution correctional institution located at 23916 NW 83rd Avenue, Raiford, FL. It was formerly known as the "Florida State Prison-East Unit" as it was originally part of Florida State Prison in Raiford, Florida and Union Correctional Institution.
Delmer Smith is a Bondage-Obsessed Sadistic Sociopath Serial Killer. Delmer Smith wore a black ski mask and black leather gloves in his home invasions, he beat, raped and hogtied his victims. Sexual sadism disorder is the condition of experiencing sexual arousal in response to the extreme pain, suffering or humiliation of others. In all of the home invasion robbery and rapes where Delmer Smith did not outright murder the female victim by smashing in her skull, he savagely beat the victims around the face and head with his fists or a bottle or a brick and left them hogtied to die
with rope or extension cord using a "two half hitch knot" around her neck.
Sadistic personality disorder does not actually refer to any sexual interest and instead refers to the pervasive disregard for the well-being of others. It is usually associated with a history of violence and criminality and can include sexual crimes. Delmer Smith is a bondage-obsessed sadist, he left all the defenseless female victims trussed up and bound 'hogtie' style with electrical cord bound around their neck and tied directly to their feet so that if they moved they would strangle themselves to death using a "two half hitch knot" around her neck. Delmer Smith's sexual sadism disorder penchant for bondage reveals his intent was always to kill his victims just like the BTK killer Dennis Radar.
The BTK killer's penchant for bondage is evident in the moniker he gave himself, for his sexual sadism disorder. The letters BTK stand for "Bind, Torture, and Kill" and accurately describe Dennis Rader's method for killing 10 people in Wichita, Kansas over three decades. For Rader, his greatest pleasure was never derived from the kill itself, but came from the bondage and torture that he inflicted on his victims before their death, just like Delmer Smith in Sarasota and Manatee County during 2009. Rader isn't the first killer who used bondage during his murders to feed his thirst for power and control—it's been a central component of other sexual sadism disorder murders as well.
Delmer Smith and BTK Dennis Radar fit the profile of a sexual sadism disorder. With paraphilic coercive disorder, the individual employs enough force to subdue a victim, but with sexual sadism disorder, the individual often continues to inflict harm regardless of the compliance of the victim (Delmer Smith's M.O.), which sometimes escalates not only to the death of the victim, but also to the mutilation of the body (Delmer Smith's M.O.). What is experienced by the sadist as sexual does not always appear obviously sexual to non-sadists: Sadistic rapes do not necessarily include penile penetration of the victim. In a survey of offenses, 77% of cases included sexual bondage (Delmer Smith's M.O.), 73% included anal rape (Delmer Smith's M.O.), 60% included blunt force trauma (Delmer Smith's M.O.), 57% included vaginal rape (Delmer Smith's M.O.), and 40% included penetration of the victim by a foreign object (Delmer Smith's M.O.). Moreover, in 40% of cases, the offender kept a personal item of the victim as a souvenir (Delmer Smith's M.O.). Most of the people diagnosed with sexual sadism disorder come to the attention of authorities by committing sexually motivated crimes. Delmer Smith raped and robbed a woman at a car wash when he was 14 years old, he put the victim in the trunk of the car and drove off with the intention to get rid of the victim.
Delmer Smith carried around a rape kit with a ski mask, duct tape and black gloves in a sports bag. Sarasota home invasion rapist Delmer Smith was driving a 2000 red SUV with Florida tag #M406CX, the vehicle was registered to Delmer Smith. The armed home invasion rapes attacks in the Sarasota-Bradenton area appear to have lasted from Feb. 22nd to August 3rd, 2009 when Kathleen Briles was murdered. No test on Delmer Smith's DNA sample from prison until September 2009 one year later after all the carnage was over, what the hell? Delmer Smith is a very big man standing almost 6 feet tall and 260 lbs, all muscle. There appears to have been no close supervision of Delmer a known rapist and armed home invasion convicted felon who moved to Bradenton Florida in September 2008. Delmer Smith fit the physical profile and description of the serial rapist, he was on Federal parole/probation in Sarasota (they knew where he was), he had to report to Florida Middle Federal Probation Office and FBI Office Sarasota, FL at 1800 Second Street, he had priors for rape and armed home invasion, so why was he not questioned in March of 2009 as the attacks progressed?

Delmer Smith, DOB 7/19/1971, was on Federal probation when he came to Bradenton Fl after his release from the TERRE HAUTE FCI 4200 Bureau Rd N, Terre Haute, Indiana on September 16th, 2008. His case was transferred to the Florida Middle Federal Probation Office due to a Bradenton woman vouching for Delmer and providing him a place to stay, Delmer then 37 quickly married the 60 year old woman. Delmer Smith would have had to report to a Probation Officer (PO) at the Florida Middle Federal Probation Office and FBI Office Sarasota, FL at 1800 Second Street Suite 795 (7th floor) Sarasota, FL. Delmer Smith's PO would have had to inspect where Delmer was living in Bradenton, would have had a face to face interview with Delmer at the Florida Middle Federal Probation Office and FBI Office Sarasota, FL at 1800 Second Street as soon as he got here. Delmer's PO would have had weekly then monthly contact with him, would have had to know where Delmer was living (he moved 3 times) was working, would have had to know his cell phone number, his registration, his Florida driver license and had taken a current photo of Delmer Smith at the Florida Middle Federal Probation Office and FBI Office Sarasota, FL at 1800 Second Street. Delmer's PO would have had to know how Delmer looked and spoke. Numerous Media reports during Delmer's reign of terror in Sarasota and Manatee County from Feb 2009 to August 2009 depicted the serial rapist as a large man who spoke with a urban slang.
The attacker in the Home Invasions in Sarasota and Bradenton Fl has been described by victims as a white male, 5'10" to 6' 0" tall, about 175 to 185 lbs, dark hair, 35 to 53 years old, speaks in street slang, some victims thought he was black by the way he talks, he wears a black ski mask, long sleeve shirts, gloves and has made statements that he robs to feed a crack cocaine habit. Delmer Smith is a very big man standing almost 6 feet tall and 200 lbs (in 2008), all muscle, he was born in urban Detroit MI and speaks in street slang. On top of all the Media disclosures, Delmer's Federal PO had a jacket filled with Delmer's violent history that included rapes and armed home invasions. How did Delmer's Federal PO miss all the clues when he/she had at least monthly visits from Delmer at the Florida Middle Federal Probation Office and FBI Office Sarasota, FL at 1800 Second Street during his reign of terror from Feb 2009 to August 2009 and he/she knew his violent history
Delmer Smith, 38, a Michigan native who moved to Bradenton, Fla. in September 2008, is responsible for at least 5 attacks in Sarasota, Sheriff Tom Knight said in announcing Smith's arrest. Investigators also suspect Delmer Smith in 7 similar crimes in Bradenton and unincorporated Manatee, starting with a Feb. 16 2009 attack on a female jogger who was beaten at gunpoint. Smith, a former federal inmate released in late 2008 on federal probation on a bank robbery conviction in Michigan, first turned up on law enforcement’s radar in Venice, Fla., when the police department began investigating him after a bar fight. He became a suspect in a string of burglaries in the Venice area, and police found a federal warrant accusing him of violating his probation on the 1995 bank robbery conviction. He was arrested Sept. 11. Venice police notified task force investigators of Smith after searching his home and finding laptop computers, which Sarasota detectives then identified as stolen from home invasion victims in Sarasota. 
Smith was jailed in Pinellas County on the probation violation, and a match was later made to DNA evidence found at the Sarasota home invasions. “It took teamwork and great police work by all of the agencies involved to get this monster off the street,” said Venice Police Capt. Tom McNulty. Sarasota sheriff’s detectives say the attacks there began Feb. 22, when two women reported a man wearing a black ski mask, gloves and black clothing entered their home in the 3500 block of Osage Terrace, and beat them both. The gunman sexually assaulted one of the women, then tied them up. Detectives matched Smith’s DNA in September to evidence at the crime scene, and also found a cell phone stolen from the attack while searching Smith’s belongings, according to sheriff’s reports. Smith has also been linked to a March 7 attack in Sarasota, in which a woman reported being attacked in her Bougainvillea Street backyard. At the time, she said a man hit her over the head with a bottle and beat her before forcing her into her home. The man then bound and gagged her on her bed and robbed the home.

Early in the investigation into a series of violent Sarasota and Manatee County home invasions, detectives had DNA evidence that could have identified the suspect. They compared the DNA to 7 million known samples from criminals and prison inmates across the country, but they did not find a match. Meanwhile, the invasions continued, with perhaps nine more similar attacks in Sarasota and Manatee counties, including some where victims were sexually assaulted and one in which a Sarasota woman was killed. Yet the DNA should have matched the man now arrested on charges connected to four of the invasions - 38-year-old Delmer Smith III, who is a paroled federal prison inmate who provided DNA samples to the FBI CODIS database after his release from the TERRE HAUTE FCI on September 16th, 2008.
But it turns out the FBI is way behind in entering the DNA samples into its CODIS DNA database that would have allowed local authorities to connect Smith to the crimes before several of the other attacks happened. Smith has been linked to as many as 11 cases, including an April rape and murder on Jo-An Drive Sarasota of which he was convicted of in July 2019. 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.
"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'.
Delmer Smith III was born July 19, 1971 in Detroit, Michigan he is one of multiple children from this mixed-race union. His mother, Velma Shelton, was white and his father was black. Delmer is light skinned, light enough to pass for being white in many circumstances. Delmer Smith III, DOB 7/19/1971, is a career criminal whose life in crime started as a youth. In Warren, MI Delmer Smith raped and robbed a woman at a car wash when he was 14 years old, he put the victim in the trunk of the car and drove off with the intention to get rid of the victim who however manged to escape at a gas station, Smith's offenses involved planning and executive functioning. Delmer Smith III, later was arrested as an adult at age 18 in 1989 for armed home invasion robbery and spent 18 months in jail. In 1991 and in 1995 Delmer Smith III 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. 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

 
On March 14, 2009, Delmer Smith committed a home invasion in Sarasota and left DNA evidence. The victim of that offense testified that Smith entered her home about 10:00 p.m., wearing gloves and a mask. He pushed her down on the couch and showed her a gun, threatening to kill her if she kept screaming. He grabbed her face so that she couldn’t breathe and tore her lip. He marched her through the house looking for valuables. He took a computer and a TV and apologized before binding her with electrical cord; he tied her hands and feet behind her with the cord wrapped around her neck in such a way that, hogtied, if she moved her legs, she would strangle herself. Smith left and victim ultimately got herself free. The victim testified against Smith at a trial and he was convicted of home invasion robbery and kidnapping. 
April 20, 2009 Armed Home invasion Bradenton Fl, Delmer Smith hogtied the wife and husband with an extension cord using a "two half hitch knot" then beat them with his fists on the floor until they were unconscious.  Delmer Smith slammed the husbands head repeatedly on the wooden floor knocking out several teeth and breaking his eye socket bones, the wife received similar treatment and a deep cut over her left eye, he left them to die.
Aug. 3, 2009 Kathleen Briles killed by Delemr Smith in her Terra Ceia home. Delmer Smith III is the ex-con dirtbag who has been raping and beating middle aged white women the Sarasota-Bradenton area since Feb. 22nd, somehow Delmer Smith always knew which house contained a middle aged white woman home alone. Doctor's Wife Murder Blunt Force Trauma Kathleen Briles Was Bound And Beaten To Death on Monday 8/03/09 She Was Home Alone Attack Mimics Manatee Sarasota Home Invasions. BRADENTON, FL -- The wife of a Manatee County doctor was bound before she was killed by blunt force, around 3:00pm on Monday August 3rd 2009, according to Manatee Sheriff Brad Steube. The body of 48-year-old Kathleen Briles was found by her husband, Dr. James Briles, Monday night. She had been dead 4 - 5 hours, according to investigators. At a Thursday morning news conference, Sheriff Steube said investigators found sign of forced entry into the Bay Shore Drive home.
August 14, 2009 Delmer Smith was arrested during a Venice bar fight and taken into custody for violating his parole. After the vicious over the top violent bar beat down, where he almost beat the victim to death, police began to look at Delmer Smith as a suspect in other crimes. The outburst arose after an Englewood man noticed Smith, 38, videotaping his girlfriend dancing at the 'Tavern On The Island' bar on Aug. 14, according to a Venice Police Department report. When the man asked Smith to stop, police say Smith grabbed him by the neck and dragged him across the stage into a corner, raining down blows on the man’s face that resulted in several fractures.The prosecutor, Assistant State Attorney Daniel Yuter, contended in his closings that the victim had suffered great bodily harm from a single punch thrown by Smith. The punch broke the orbital bone in the victim's face, Yuter said.

In terms of his brain functioning, he had a bound, helpless female lying on the floor, he made a decision to kill her, he decided to bludgeon her, went and got a large heavy object and sadistically repeatedly bludgeoned her to death with it while she was tied up on the floor. As for the mechanism by which death actually resulted, the examiner concluded that multiple blows to Ms. Briles’ head with a 23-pound metal antique sewing machine created numerous skull fractures which compressed the bone into the brain causing massive hemorrhage and, ultimately, death

The court gave moderate weight to the felony probation aggravator, noting the short amount of time that elapsed between Smith’s release from prison and Mrs. Briles’ murder, which was less than a year. The court gave great weight to the prior violent felony conviction aggravator, based on the 1991 federal offenses armed bank robbery. The court noted that Smith had been convicted of armed home invasion and armed kidnapping for the Sarasota offenses. The court gave great weight to the heinous, atrocious or cruel aggravator, explaining the circumstances of the Briles murder in detail and concluding it was “shockingly evil and outrageously wicked, conscienceless, and pitiless”.
CLICK ON IMAGE ABOVE FOR VIDEO 10 NEWS July 2019: “He pummeled these women into the ground,” Bill Warner, a private investigator who’s followed the case since 2009, explained. “He beat them with the butt of his .380 Walther semi-automatic hand gun, bricks, bottles, 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. The two attacks were among at least a dozen authorities say Delmer Smith committed over several months in 2009 in Manatee and Sarasota counties.
