Police said that Douglas had pursued a romantic relationship with the victim. The victim’s daughter told police that Douglas told the woman to end her current relationship, according to the North Port Daily Sun.

Douglas was considered a person of interest, but it took months of investigating to identify him as the suspected killer, police said.

"It is due to hard work and dedication from our agency, which will help our victim's family find some sort of justice for this senseless and heinous crime," said North Port Police Chief Todd Garrison.
