Miya Marcano found 'bound with tape around feet, wrists, & covering her mouth' after body dumped in woods, lawyer saysOctober 6, 2021
MIYA Marcano's body was found with tape around her hands and feet and covering her mouth, her family's attorney revealed on Wednesday.
The body of the 19-year-old student was found in a wooded area near an apartment complex in central Florida on Saturday after a week-long search.
No details had been released about how the body was found.
However, details began to emerge on Tuesday as the family spoke out about their heartbreak.
“What I can tell you is that this guy had tape around Miya’s wrists, tape around her feet, had tape on her mouth,” attorney Daryl Washington told WLPG.
“When you talk about it, you really get frustrated.”
Authorities confirmed on Tuesday that the body found near Tymber Skan Condominiums at the weekend was Miya.
Washington said the official identification had taken a few days because of the condition of her body, according to Local10.
The cause and manner of her death have still not been released pending full autopsy results.
Her family had reported Miya missing from her Orlando apartment on September 26 after she failed to catch her flight to visit them in Tampa the night before.
Cops investigating her disappearance found the entrance to her home blocked off and blood on her pillow.
The suspect in her death, Armando Caballero, was found dead a day later.
Authorities say he hung himself inside the garage of an apartment complex close to the complex where Miya lived.
He was employed as a maintenance worker in the complex where she lived and worked and her family has claimed they were aware he was "obsessed" with her.
Miya's aunt recalled her chilling encounter with Caballero on the day before he reportedly killed himself as he approached them when they came looking for her.
