Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office investigators want to speak to the driver of a red pickup truck in connection with the discovery of a woman's body behind a shopping plaza west of Lake Worth on Feb. 26.

Kimberly Dixon, 39, last was seen alive inside the man's truck on Feb. 26 in the 7000 block of South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach, the street where she lived. Five hours later, her body was found inside a black trash bag near Florida Mango Boulevard and 10th Avenue North, the Sheriff's Office said. Read more

That is a very good clear and vivid photo of the truck!! I dont think there are many two-toned ones like that around? Someone must recognize it and I hope they come forward, its a wonderful lead, even if the driver is innocent he could probably provide info to help the police.

I understand people will say "she was just a hooker" "a drug addict" "she could of been spreading disease" which may be true, but no human being should have to die in such a brutal way, her life was hell and then her death was.

I hope and pray this deters other woman from getting into the life of stripping and prostitution, these prostitutes and strippers lead a dangerous life, they are sitting ducks for perverts, and if you are lucky enough not to get hurt or killed you have to worry about AIDS. The drugs must cloud common sense. If anything positive can come of this is that women must not enter this dangerous life, its not worth it.

I doubt the validity of any of the information provided.
when the police circulate a list of people who local motels should avoid renting to, I highly doubt the same police agency will waste any time searching for the real killer. The cops will continue to encourage the sick heartless "street sweeping"

Kimberly Dixon was arrested on 11 outstanding criminal warrants on Nov. 17 and walked out of jail scot free by the first of Dec. Sounds like some kind of deal was made to me amd I wouldn't doubt if her death came about as a result of such a deal. She was arrested 41 times in her adult life. Dosen't sound like anyone who was sworn to "protect and serve" did anything of the sort. They left her on the street to die. I think you're right, they don't care, they never did, so why would they now.

They're sworn to protect and serve law-abiding citizens, not career criminals with 41 adult arrests. If she didn't care about her own life, why should strangers?

I worked the street alongside Kimmy for years and although she did get high and prostitute, she never hurt anybody else. No robbery, no stealing, no violent crimes- all her crimes were victimless. If you showed her that you weren't out to hurt her, that girl would do anything for you. She was one of my best friends in the world and I'm glad the murderer has been arrested. Thank you, anonymous phone call!

Law abiding citizens aren't the only citizens who need protection. She needed help and the prison system is supposedly designed for that purpose. Grow up you idiot. You're comments are among the most ignorant things I've ever heard. She was a beautiful person who made some bad choices and she suffered the consequences of those choices in the most horrific way. Take it from someone who knew and loved her.

I realize she never killed anyone. But servicing hundreds of guys a week she must of been exposed to several diseses including AIDS, was she ever tested? prostitutes and strippers are amoung the highest population of women who carry STD's because of constant exposure to disease, I hope she did not have it or give it to anyone else.

You say you worked along the street with her? Are you not afraid? getting into strangers car's not knowing whether you will ever come out? is it worth it? a quick crack high to be brutally murdered? there a some real sick perverts out there, if you are still doing this please get out of the life its dangerous and not worth your life, whether it be drugs, disease or death, that poor woman died doing it that should be an incentive for any prostitute to get help and get off the streets. Spreading AIDS is not victimless nor is the killing of a woman who had children!

i looked on PBC booking blotter.. there are a few Michelle's. One is black and looks dead, one is like forty years old with grayish hair and one is in her twenties, but looks like she is near forty due to the sordid life, sad sacks all of them, any man who would even touch them must be pretty low himself, the women are butt ugly and look like so old, sick, and mean, real sad real bad news..........

i think the system tried to help her as the cops did and her family. Drug addiction is a terrible thing, its a shame no one thought to put her in a drug rehab program, its free for indigent people thats what are taxes are supposed to go for. Forty one arrests is very excessive, instead of picking her up for prostitution and drugs a hospital would of been much better, she looked very sick and could of been ill with any disease, she needed help and instead met up with a monster, i hope she at last is at peace.

who did they arrest for this henious crime?? i dont remember reading or seeing on tv anything about an arrest? whats his name? if there was an arrest i am glad he is off the street but i fear there are five more to take his place, prostitutes are easy targets and i hope and pray at least ONE got off the street because of Kim Dixons death, i am a woman and its very scary it could happen to anyone. Such a dangerous profession for so many reasons, and i detest the men who pick them up they are lowlifes who should be arrested. i hope they caught the man who did it.

yes i agree its been awhile and an arrest should of been made but its hard because of the criminal element and criminals coverup for other criminals. her job put her at very high risk for danger.

maybe its because, and its not fair, that she was a prostitute she brought it on herself, nobody no matter what they do wants to be brutally murdered. strippers and prostitutes are considered the "scum and underbelly of the earth" and when rapes or beatings or murders happen they are not taken as seriously as other woman.
prostitutes and strippers lead very very dangerous lives, they are sitting ducks for these predators and perverts who follow them, stalk them, and pay them for sex, they run the risk of AIDS and trafficking with strangers who will try to hurt them or kill them, they are two professions women should never ever get into to, there is no protection because people think so badly of them.

women must defend themselves! with guard dogs, weapons or both. and NO woman should ever even think of being a prostitute or stripper, its so dangerous with disease, drugs, danger and death almost a given, and men who go to strip joints or pick up streetwalkers are creeps and perverts, pathetic idiots!

Kimberly Dixon was my mother. Theres nothing worse then losing a parent. I remember on my 12th birthday my brother Austyn took me down to the bus stop, where i found my mom walking out of the bus. I couldnt have been happier to see her. That was the last time i ever saw her then the terrible tragedy happened and i lost her. I didnt know much about her, but all i know is that she loved me with every spec of her heart and is watching over me now. She had the biggest heart and always put her loved ones first, then she got into some terrible drugs that completely ruined her life. I love my mom with all of my heart, there is not a day that goes by i dont think of her. Bad things always happen to good people i never understood that.

I think of my Kim every day. Sometimes I cry because such tragedy happened to her; she will always be loved and fondly remembered by me. Wherever she rests I hope it is a beautiful beach house---not like the one we shared on the ravine of Lake Worth/West Palm, under a bridge made of dirt and grime. But where she is now is peaceful and serene.

All my love,

Your Lana
