TALLAHASSEE, FL (AP) Gov. Rick Scott is ordering the execution of a central Florida serial killer who raped and dismembered five women before murdering a teenager almost 30 years ago.
Scott signed a death warrant Tuesday for David Alan Gore. He is scheduled to be executed April 12.
In 1983, Gore picked up 17-year-old Lynn Elliott and her 14-year-old friend hitchhiking in Indian River County and took them to his house. He raped the younger girl three times, and then came for Elliott, who ran from the house. A boy saw Gore running naked after her. When Gore caught Elliott, he dragged her to a tree and shot her in the head twice.
