Suspects questioned in murder of Florida pizza delivery man

March 20, 2002

Police arrested two people on Dec. 30, who they believe may responsible for a crime spree that killed two people and injured another.

Florida authorities arrested Quawn Franklin, 24, and a 13-year-old girl on Dec. 30, when they were spotted driving a stolen vehicle owned by Alice Johnson, 75. Johnson was found beaten and with her mouth duct-taped, last Friday in her Leesburg home.

The suspects are being questioned about the death of a 31-year-old Papa John's pizza delivery man who was found last week duct-taped and shot in the back, and about the murder of Jerry Lawley, 61. Lawley died Sunday when a masked gunman shot him in the back.

Leesburg, Fla. police said that John Horan, 31, was reported missing by co-workers when he didn't return from a delivery run on Dec. 18. A few hours later, a trucker found Horan's body.

Detectives believe the suspect or suspects ordered a pizza and then ambushed Horan.
