A&E's Zeman and Mills began their investigation with the LISK case, but found there are likely many, many more predators who have been able to keep their killings sprees unnoticed. "These guys aren't getting away with murder because they are such geniuses," Mills tells Rolling Stone. "They have identified the perfect victims. They know that those are the types of people that maybe they should go after because they don't leave as much of a trace as a soccer mom who posts on Facebook."
Detectives have established a male suspect from the Manatee-Sarasota area in the December 9th, 2011 case of murdered of Nicole Rose Scott, but his identity has not been released, that was on December 22nd 2012. Manatee County sheriff’s Detective Sgt. Pete Rampone has revealed that the suspect may have been her client. “But we’re unsure of a motive,” Rampone said. “It could have been random. He could have felt like she ripped him off. It could be someone who thinks people like that (Escorts) are less worthy, which isn’t true.” “We checked dozens of hotels for evidence of her having been there. There is still a two- or three-day gap we can’t account for”. “Every time we get a lead, we chase it to the end.” One of Nicole Scott's male associates and drug dealer has been arrested over 50 times in the Manatee-Sarasota area including a rape conviction where he did prison time. This male associate and drug dealer in Sarasota, who was close to Nicole Scott, violently raped and slashed an escort in February 2012 who owed him money for drugs and left her for dead at the Water Tower Park on the North Trail in Sarasota Fl, DNA linked him to the crime.
On Feb. 3rd 2012, a woman told police she blacked out (GHB date rape drug) after leaving a bar (Rendezvous Lounge) and woke up hours later in the North Water Tower Park with life threatening injuries. The staff at Sarasota Memorial Hospital determined that the woman had been violently raped and sodomized. An analysis of DNA by Florida Department of Law Enforcement identified the assailant who was a known associate of Nicole Scott. Not only did the assailant abduct, rape and sodomize this defenseless woman, he cut her all over her body, there were lacerations on her sides, on her stomach, on her wrist, on the back of her neck and a large laceration with swelling on her back, when he finished raping her the assailant dumped her body in the tree lined woods of the North Water Tower Park on the North Trail in Sarasota Fl to die. In 2015 another young female victim of the same assailant contacted me at my private detective agency office and told me she had been raped not once but twice by this same assailant, she had reported the rapes to the Sarasota Police Dept but it became a problem for an arrest because she had been doing drugs with the assailant, I have a copy of the 2015 police report, this rapist is currently in the Sarasota County Jail on an unrelated conviction.
Unsolved murder of Nicole Rose Scott Sarasota Fl. Manatee County Sheriff’s Office detectives continue to investigate the murder of 29-year-old Nicole “Nikki” Rose Scott, whose body was found Dec. 11, 2011 in a ditch at the end of University Parkway in East Manatee County. Exactly 5 long years ago the mutilated body of Nicole Rose Scott was found in a ditch at the far East end of University Parkway off of I-75 on December 11th, 2011. University Prkwy and Bourneside Blvd is basically a dead end road with no lights or nearby neighbors, "a good place to dump a body". The killer would have no problem in getting out of their vehicle and dumping the body near the trees and then getting back in his or their vehicle and heading back to I-75 and a quick getaway out of the area. The end of University Parkway, east of Lakewood Ranch, is approximately six miles from I-75.
Death of Nicole Rose Scott: Law Enforcement statement, On Dec 11th 2011 the body of Nicole Scott was found in a ditch on University Pkwy in Manatee County. At this time we believe that Nicole might have been in the ditch for possible three days before she was discovered. Nicole worked as a prostitute (escort) on the North Trail, and frequented the hotels in that area. Nicole was also a known drug user. We would like anyone that knows anything about her death, or who she might have been with to come forward with this information.
According to a search warrant executed on December 11th, 2011, detectives and patrol deputies found the home of murdered Nicole Rose Scott, 29, unlocked and the television still on. Cops confiscated numerous items to be checked for DNA, blood, fingerprints and clothing fibers to determine who may recently have been in the house in the 5400 block of Potter Street. Those items include beer bottles, water bottles, ashtrays, condom wrappers, cigarette butts, notebooks, a cellphone charger, a glass pipe, bed linen and a motel room key…. that room key appears to link to one of the series of Motels on the North Trail of Sarasota Fl.
On Thursday, December 8, 2011 Lonnie Scott, Nikki's brother, said he called his sister. It would be the last time the siblings spoke. “I got upset with her because she said she was going to start escorting,” he said. He called her the next two days, but never got an answer. That Sunday, December 11th, 2011 a motorcyclist found Scott’s partially clothed body north of where University Parkway ends, in an easement near The Concessions luxury home development. Since his sister’s death, Lonnie said he “can’t even think straight.” “My sister was like my mom and dad,” he said. “She was always there for me.” The case is still under investigation. The Manatee County sheriff’s office has received a few tips, but “not that one that pushes it over the edge,” sheriff’s office spokesman Dave Bristow said. “She’d been in that town (Sarasota) all her life,” her father said. “And the people Nikki knew were worthless. ... She did have a drug issue. That controlled her life, really.”
