The police chief in Sebring, Fla, declined to release some of the slain women's names at the request of their families, citing a provision in the "Marsy's Law" amendment to the state Constitution that voters approved in November. Florida's law specifically allows crime victims to prevent the disclosure of information that could be used to locate or harass them or their families. Marsy's Law is being bankrolled by a California billionaire whose sister, Marsalee Nicholas, was slain in 1983. (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara, File)
