FEW CLUES IN ORLANDO MURDER OF 2 ST. THOMIANS

Police in Orlando, Fla., have few leads as of yet in the slayings of a St. Thomas woman and her niece last week.
Helena Mills, 41, and her 17-year-old niece, Jo Anna Charles, were found dead in the bathroom of their home on Nov. 7, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Mills had moved to Orlando from St. Thomas two years ago; her niece joined her several months ago and was a senior at Edgewater High School, the Sentinel reported.
According to a Friday report in the Sentinel, Orlando police are searching for Mill's green 1996 Mazda 626, which they hope may contain clues in the case.
Sgt. Louis Tanzi of the Orlando police homicide unit told the Sentinel that "nothing in the lifestyle of the victims" suggested the killings were drug-related.
Mills was working for Federal Express in Orlando at the time of her death and was described as an avid church-goer.
Police have not released the manner or cause of death.
