Port Orange, FL -  Port Orange Police Detectives located a body they believe to be that of Thomas “Tommy” McMullen, the prime suspect in the murder of Port Orange resident Diana Kessler.

 “Earlier today, at approximately 11:00 am, Port Orange Police Department detectives located what is believed to be the body of Thomas McMullen Jr. in the woods near the 2500 block of W. International Speedway Blvd,” said Port Orange Police Department Ofc. Evan Doyle in a release Friday afternoon.

Just have to say I love the Port Orange Connection. It keeps informed, as I do not receive the local newspaper. Keep up the great work.
