QUESTION: how to find news stories about Daytona Beach serial killer and sex workers' response

question / pregunta: 

In 2006, there was someone who was killing street prostitutes in Daytona Beach, Florida. In response, at least one of the prostitutes (Tanya Richardson) declared that the women on the avenue were arming themselves and were prepared to take care of the killer themselves since the police were doing nothing about the killings.

Where and how would I find news coverage both of the killings and of the sex workers' response (and the outcome, if there was one)?

I actually follow this case, so if there's anything else you need for research, please let me know.

Comments from the sex workers

And here is another report, with comments from the armed sex workers themselves. The name quoted here is similar to the one in the question, "Tonya" vs. "Tanya"

"Rather than run from the man police labeled a serial killer, streetwalkers here in Daytona Beach along Ridgewood Avenue say they are seeking the serial killer out," Local 6 reported Tarik Minor said. "They believe the man responsible for murdering three women here is someone they have come in contact with."

"We will get him first," streetwalker Tonya Richardson said. "Yeah, we are going to get him first. When we find him, he is going to be sorry. It is as simple as that."
