Daytona Beach, FL-Daytona Beach authorities unveiled a new billboard today to try to get answers in the still unsolved murder of 35-year-old Faith Jenkins last year.
According to Daytona Beach Police Department Chief Mike Chitwood, Jenkins’ partially nude body was found behind an abandoned house at 327 Kingston Avenue on April 22, 2015. She died of trauma. Jenkins arrived in Daytona Beach in December 2014 from West Virginia and had been arrested for prostitution and struggled with drug addiction in the time she was here.
Daytona Beach PD and Crime Stoppers of NE Florida partnered to sponsor the billboard at Congress and Ridgewood Avenue, near where Jenkins’ body was found. The billboard has Jenkins’ photo on it and offers a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of her killer.
This is the first time in about a decade that a billboard like this has been put up in the city to bring attention to an unsolved murder, said Chitwood.
Chitwood and Cheryl Lawson-Young, President of Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida, both think the killer lives near the new billboard, along with people who know what happened to Jenkins.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip @WeStopCrime.com
