Police Fear Serial Killer on the Loose in Florida

Police in Florida are searching for a possible triple murder suspect after three teenagers were found dead or dying beside a road north of Orlando. The two 16-year-old girls and a 17-year-old boy were discovered near Ocklawaha, 60 miles north west of Orlando. Layla Silvernail, 16, was still alive when she was found on Thursday night shot in the head and left in a dumpster near Forest Lakes Park. Her family has since been told she is brain dead, and she will be taken off life support

A second victim, an unnamed 17-year-old boy, was found on Friday morning less than a mile away, shot dead by the side of the road. The third victim, another 16-year-old girl, was found on Saturday shot dead inside Silvernail’s car, which was partially submerged in a lake.

Sheriff Billy Woods said in a video statement posted to Facebook that his team were investigating how the trio were connected.

‘My Major Crimes Detectives are working 24/7 to continue their murder investigation and diligently track down every possible lead,’ he said.

‘We are devastated for the families of these three teenagers, and we are dedicated to bringing whoever is responsible for these atrocious acts to justice.’
