According to a release sent out by Daytona Beach Police Department, DBPD wants your help to solve an incident from three weeks ago that ended with the murder of an elderly man and the wounding of an elderly woman.
Charles H. Brown was found around 3:40 a.m. on June 2, 2020, inside his home at 645 Westmoreland Road. Officers arrived within minutes of the 911 calls and found him in the living room unresponsive.
Paramedics took the 66-year-old Brown to Halifax Health Medical Center, where he passed away shortly after arrival.
Another resident of the home – a 68-year-old woman – was also found inside as officers got on scene. She was taken to Halifax Health Medical Center for treatment and is recovering from her injuries.
