Florida Cold Case: DNA links Orlance Sangster to 2010 murder of Damion Allen

Orlance Sangster

Florida authorities announced that they have solved a cold case murder with the arrest of an incarcerated drug dealer who sports a tattoo of a spider web on his forehead and a tattoo of the words “bold world” under his eyes.

Orlance Sangster, 27, has been accused of trying to rob another drug dealer of marijuana and then shooting and killing him when he resisted, the Pensacola News Journal reported Friday.

The paper recounted some details from the March 2010 shooting: “Two men argued in a vehicle. A gun went off. Then the passenger pushed the victim’s body aside and took the wheel, speeding out of the Montclair area street.

“…The vehicle was found abandoned in a cul-de-sac two days later, and on the backseat was the body of victim Damion Lamar Allen.”

Investigators with the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office said the Allen murder turned into a cold case when no one was arrested for the murder.

The case was reopened in May when another prisoner, serving time in an Arkansas federal prison, told investigators that in 2011 Sangster told him that he and an accomplice killed Allen.

The man said Sangster and another man, Terrance Johnson, allegedly went to buy marijuana in a gold Nissan and met up with Allen. Sangster allegedly said he got out of the gold Nissan and got into Allen’s car, and when he realized Allen had more marijuana than expected, Sangster tried to rob him of the drugs.

Sangster allegedly said he shot Allen because he wouldn’t give up the marijuana, then he pushed the body aside, got into the driver’s seat and sped out of the area. He allegedly said he got involved in a short police chase before he got away.

Officials confirmed that DNA found in the interior of the vehicle in which Allen was found matched Sangster through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s DNA profile matching program.

Sangster was charged and booked into the Escambia County Jail on the murder charge Tuesday.
