Two stabbed in Daytona Beach over drugs

DAYTONA BEACH -- A dispute over drugs led to the stabbing early Thursday of a city woman who was being treated at Halifax Medical Center for nearly a dozen wounds to her head and upper body, police said.

The victim was identified as 37-year-old Kendra Vodron Wettter, stabbed in the 700 block of Segrave Avenue. She identified her attacker, whom she had met earlier, as a man named "Ed" while partying, according to a police report.The woman was in the home of 33-year-old Josh Bushholtz, according to the police report, which described the residence as a place of drug activity.

When the drugs ran out, the woman victim and the suspect apparently got more drugs, but a dispute over payment led to the attacks upon their return, police said. Bushholtz was stabbed, though his injures were not considered life threatening, as he fought off the attacker.

Police found the bloodied woman outside of a nearby motel. The suspect fled in a red Nissan with a shattered back window after Bushholtz threw a rock at the fleeing car. Both victims were taken by EVAC to the hospital. Police were looking for the stabber, described as a white with short red hair, about 30 years of age, 5 feet 10 and 180 pounds.
