Kristin Dunn, a 47 year old woman known to stay in the Daytona Beach area, was found murdered about a month ago on the side of S. Sparkman Ave in a remote section of Orange City. While homicide investigators with the Volusia County Sheriff's Office continue to piece together the case, one nagging question remains unanswered: what ties the victim had to Orange City. Investigators are hoping anyone who knew Dunn will come forward to help answer that question.

Victims naked body was found on the south side of S. Sparkman Ave near W. Gardenia Dr in the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 19. So far, investigators have been able to trace Dunn's activities right up unto the night before her body was discovered. Based on witness statements, investigators have learned that the night before she was found dead, Dunn was partying with several people at the Lido Beach Motel on S. Atlantic Ave. in Daytona Beach. Dunn was last seen leaving the motel around midnight in a blue, 1993 Chevy Astro Van driven by Dunn's friend, 39 year old Lindsey Derusha. Considered a person of interest in this case, Derusha left the area before investigators could talk to him. Deputies have identified the other people who were at the motel, and they are cooperating in the investigation.

Investigators also would like to talk to anyone who had contact with Dunn, may have seen Dunn & Derusha together, or has information linking Dunn to the Orange City area. The information does not need to be specific to the time frame surrounding her death.
