Sheriff: Miya Marcano's hands, feet and mouth bound with duct-tape when found dead
As investigators continue to search for answers in the case of Miya Marcano, new details on how the 19-year-old Florida college student was found that heartbreaking Saturday morning surfaced during a Wednesday news conference.
Orange County Sheriff John Mina said the 19-year-old was discovered in a wooded area near the Tymbar Skan apartments bound with duct tape around her wrists, feet and mouth.
Marcano was wearing jeans, a bra and no shirt, the sheriff added. Her shirt that was missing was later discovered in her purse when deputies were able to track down her belongings, which were also in the area.
Based on the investigation’s findings so far, Mina said there were no signs that Marcano suffered from any sexual abuse before her death.
Wednesday’s news conference was called following the emergence of cell phone video the Marcano family released. It captures an encounter with Armanda Caballero, the maintenance worker at the apartment complex where Marcano lived and worked. It shows the sole person of interest in the missing case.
