James Maxwell was indicted for the murder of Chasity Starr and Pamela Sue Will. Chasity Starr was a Holly Hill resident. He was already in jail for raping a 9 year old in a Park. He had been mandated to Narcotics Anonymous meetings to meet probation requirements for prior felony convictions. Why was this man even allowed on the streets? With today’s guidelines he would still have been in jail. So tragic that he raped a little girl and killed 2 local women while out on probation.
How can Judges and probation officers mandate AA and NA meetings for such dangerous felons, knowing children and teens are at these meetings as well? Why does the City of Holly Hill allow the likes of James Maxwell to go to 12 step meetings steps away from the childrens playgrounds?
Rape suspect James Maxwell indicted in killings of 2 women
PORT ORANGE — A grand jury indicted James Maxwell — already a suspect in a child rape and abduction — today in the killing of two women.
Police said the remains of Chasity Starr, 27, were unearthed in Maxwell’s backyard in June. The body of Pamela Sue Will, 48, was found months after her September 2010 disappearance in a ditch near International Trade Associates, an Ormond Beach business where Maxwell used to work. A family four-wheeling in the area discovered the body, wrapped in plastic.
Will had been reported missing from a South Daytona motel, but police declined to say much about the victim because of an open investigation.
“I can’t say much, but I can say we have been in contact with her mother this morning,” said Port Orange Lt. David Meyer. We are going to be working on relaying as much information to her as possible.”
Port Orange police said Thursday that they believed Maxwell, 44, strangled both women in the modest, white block home on Brandy Hills Drive that he shared with the mother of his infant daughter, Joanna Bertram. Bertram was the one who tipped off police to what the yard held.
She had visited Maxwell in the Volusia County Branch Jail, where he was being held on charges that he abducted a 9-year-old next-door neighbor on Dec. 15, raped her in a park and kept her there overnight before dropping her off a the police station.
