The car jacking turned kidnapping I posted about a few days ago? The victim’s burned out vehicle was found 30 miles away with a dead body inside of it. The cops are saying that the carjacker used a 10mm handgun in the carjacking. That means there was spent brass recovered at the scene. (Too early to have recovered bullets and had them analyzed in a lab)

The husband said his wife was traveling to Central Florida to visit family, but the cops say that they are not aware of any relatives living in the area, nor are there any records of the victim or her husband having any connections to the area. The victim was from the Dominican Republic and had lived in South Florida for the past five years.

My theory is that one of the following two scenarios are most likely:

  • the woman was acting a drug mule for her husband and she was carjacked in connection with those activities
  • the husband had his wife killed for some reason

I think that the first of those is the most likely of those two.

Or C) A combination of the two.

Maybe the wife was shorting the supply or stepping out on husband drug dealer and he had her killed to cover a debt or because she was shorting supply or stepping out.

Can’t say I’ve ever seen or heard of a pistol-braced 10mm handgun. I’ll file this one under the journalist’s guide on firearms. Magazine is thicker than 10mm cartridges too, but that doesn’t mean much in the world of Endomag inserts.

12 casings and one loose projectile were recovered from the car according to another news story. Wish for the whole press conference without talking heads editorializing over it.

[…] This carjacking in the Orlando area has begun sounding like a television show. […]
