Default Black gangster gets lifetime free room & board for murder of White man


South Daytona police seeking two persons of interest in murder case
Last Modified: Wednesday, June 19, 2013 at 1:12 p.m.

Two men who were near the scene where a South Daytona man was murdered and where his car was abandoned may have information in the unsolved case
, police said Wednesday.

The men are considered persons of interest in the killing of Donald Dean Clark, who was found shot to death just after 6 a.m. in the laundry room of his apartment complex on June 2.

Clark's 2011, pearl-white Mitsubishi Gallant was also stolen after he was shot, said South Daytona Acting Police Chief Ron Wright. However, the car was recovered three days later in the parking lot of an apartment building on Palmetto Avenue in Daytona Beach.

Based on information from a tenant of that building, the car had been left there the same day the 67-year-old Clark was shot, police said.

Surveillance video caught one of the men at a Kangaroo convenience store at 601 Bevill Rd. at about the same time Clark was found, Wright said. The store is close to the laundry room where Clark's body was discovered by another resident.

The second man was spotted walking westbound on Shady Place in Daytona Beach close to where Clark's car was abandoned, Wight said.

Investigators also have not received any information from the public regarding a pricey, charcoal-colored men's Trek mountain bike that was found near the laundry room, Wright said. Police questioned other residents of the Golfview Aaprtments on Northern Road and none had ever seen the bicycle on the premises.

Because of that, investigators are more convinced then ever that the mysterious, $800 bicycle is linked to the murder, Wright said.

Clark's wallet - which was found inside the car - as well as DNA evidence and fingerprints found in the Mitsubishi, have been sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's lab in Orlando, Wright said.

Investigators are waiting to hear whether DNA other than Clark's was gleaned from the evidence.
