DAYTONA BEACH — One knows every protocol of police work, the other knows every square mile of the city and its unique history. After all, he was once the mayor.

Together, they are taking a crack at 79 unsolved murder cases in Daytona Beach that stretch across 52 years.

Every Tuesday, for eight hours at a time, the retirees pore over records that are detailed in their brutality and morbidity — and yet the job has energized them.

Mansfield police crack cold case from 2008 involving 15-year-old

A suspect who was 15 at the time of a 2008 slaying has been arrested in the cold case, police said.

The victim, Danny Lee Ramsey III, was not breathing when officers found him in a parking lot of what was then a Super Target shopping center in the 1800 block of U.S. 287 in Mansfield on June 9, 2008, according to a news release from the Mansfield Police Department.

Ramsey, of Alvarado, died from gunshot wounds to the chest, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s website.
