Miami-Dade Police identified the body of a man found inside a vehicle in the city of Homestead as Luis Calles Cruz, a 32-year-old Cuban national.
The authorities reported that after 6 a.m. on September 8, an officer found the victim, who had been shot in various places on his body.
Although the agent tried to resuscitate him, Calles Cruz – who leaves two children – was pronounced dead at the scene, in the area of SW 264th Street and 147th Ct. One, candles and flowers can be seen on a makeshift altar in the area where the crime occurred.
The victim’s family resides in Tampa and is devastated by the tragedy, according to the mother of the deceased’s youngest daughter in statements to Telemundo 51.
At the end of this note, other details about what happened are unknown.
The police ask for help to find the person responsible for the murder. If anyone has any information of interest to the authorities, they can call the Miami-Dade Crime Stop Line at 305-471-8477.
The murder of Luis Calles Cruz is added to another recent crime in which a Cuban was also a victim, it is the death of Yasnier López Debora, a 31-year-old Cuban who was stabbed in the early morning of September 5 by his rental companion in Miami, also of Cuban nationality.
In that case, the investigation also remains active and the authorities ask for help from the community to capture the Darién Zamora Carrandi, main suspect of that crime.
