Police want to know who kidnapped, tortured, and killed two truck drivers similar to execution before dumping their bodies on a street in South Florida.
The Miami Herald reported that a third man survived the ordeal and reported a bystander who called the police. The man, whose name has not been released, was in critical condition when he was taken to hospital on Saturday night.
Police told the newspaper that masked men had kidnapped Osmar Oliva, 50, who owns Oliva Delivery Corp, and Johan Gonzalez Quesada, 26, and a third man. They handcuffed and tortured them for hours in the back of a moving truck before being shot in the head and left in a yard in Opa Luka, near Miami.
“He was a very good person,” said Oliva’s widow. “I don’t know why this happened to him.”
Gonzalez Quesada, has a one-year-old daughter and a baby who was born less than two weeks ago.
“He was an amazing person,” said Gonzalez Quesada’s father, Ovidio Gonzalez Roche. This is an extraordinary shock. I cannot explain what happened. “
Miami Dade murder investigators are looking for answers.
NBC Channel 6 reported that the men’s bodies were left outside an abandoned house in Opa Luka.
A reward of $ 5,000 is offered for as little as possible arrest information.
Each of the dead men had previous disagreements with the law. The Herald reported that Oliva was arrested in 2007 after officers said he was one of three men who found a shipment of a stolen trailer that had been found using a GPS device. The charges were dropped the following year.
Last year, Gonzalez Quesada was accused of having two shipments of stolen goods – frozen shrimp and air conditioning units – which were tracked via GPS on stolen tractor trailers.
An arrest report stated that the shipment was discovered at his home. He pleaded not guilty and awaiting trial.
