DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – New video has been released of a person of interest in the slaying of a married couple Sunday.
The Daytona Beach Police Department tweeted the video Tuesday asking for help identifying and locating the man in it. Police said they are looking to speak with the man and he is not someone “we’re looking to arrest at this point.”

Officials said the video shows a man walking along Seabreeze Boulevard just after midnight Sunday. He is wearing a gray tank top, beige scarf, white pants, red gloves and a black cowboy hat. He is also seen wearing a backpack.
Police said the couple was found dead with multiple stab wounds and lacerations. Investigators said the two victims were riding their bicycles home after participating in Bike Week festivities when they were attacked. They were later found in a grassy area next to the sidewalk at the corner of Wild Olive Avenue and Riverview Boulevard, police said.
The victims were identified as 48-year-old Terry Aultman and 55-year-old Brenda Aultman.
Police have a mobile command unit set up off Wild Olive Avenue this week to keep surveillance and protect the neighborhood until the killer is caught.
“It seems so random and it seems so crazy, honestly, I don’t even know what to think about it,” said Rick Kitt, who owns several businesses on Seabreeze Avenue. “We don’t see that at all around here honestly.”
Kitt said he hadn’t seen the couple or the person of interest that night but called it terrifying for the community.
“It’s kind of scary when you think about it but then you wonder if it was a revenge thing or if it was just random,” he said.
Some neighbors on Wild Olive told News 6 they were worried about crime spreading from Seabreeze Avenue into their neighborhood. It’s an area city leaders and some Daytona Beach business owners have discussed revitalizing over the last year due to crime rates.
“I never see that kind of crime down here on my end of Seabreeze and I don’t think it had anything to do with Seabreeze,” Kitt said.
Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari Young released a statement saying the department is doing everything they can to find the person of interest.
“We will spare no expense and leave no stone unturned in order to solve this case,” Young said in the statement. “I assure you that our detectives are doing all they can to bring justice to the loved ones of these victims.”
If you know this man, or know where to find him, you are asked to call Detective Collin Howell at 386-671-5257, or email him at HowellCollin@DBPD.us.
