3 arrested in Florida murder-for-hire plot in which wrong woman was killed
"It was just a mistaken identity, I don't say that lightly, that this woman lost her life for no reason".
Ramos-Rivera and Montes kept on utilizing Zengotita-Torres' cards after they dumped her body, provoking experts to stake out ATMs in the zone.
The body of Janice Marie Zengotita-Torres was found in Ormond Beach Monday, Jan. 8 after she was reported missing.
Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said Ishnar Lopez Ramos hired Alexis Ramos Rivera and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to kill a romantic rival, but they mistook Janice Zengotita-Torres, 42, of Kissimmee, for the intended victim and killed her.
Zengotita-Torres moved to Osceola County from Puerto Rico with her 14-year-old-son, husband and father about a year ago, investigators said.
Zengotita-Torres was bound and suffocated with garbage bags, Gibson said.
One station reported that Gibson choked up as he announced the arrests.
She made a decision to hire Alexis Ramos-Rivera and his girlfriend, Glorianmarie Quinones Montes, to kill the woman, but they mistook Zengotita-Torres for their target and abducted her instead.
Sheriff Russell Gibson says all three of the suspects confessed and that their arrests may not have happened without some close work that was done with the victim's family.
Sheriff Gibson said the suspects then realized Zengotita-Torres was not their intended target, "but continued with their plan of murder and tied the victim with zip ties and then [covered] her head in duct tape and garbage bags", according to the Sentinel.
Ramos-Rivera and Quinones-Montes both followed the victim to a parking lot near her home and allegedly abducted her. Lopez-Ramos gave a full confession to authorities and implicated the other two suspects, who were subsequently arrested and provided full confessions as well, according to the sheriff's office.
During a press conference Friday, Gibson said: "I get emotional because it touches me so deeply that one of our citizens was killed in such a manner over a mistaken identification and in the end, it appears to be a lover's triangle".
The three women charged in her death all came to Central Florida from Puerto Rico in late December, deputies said. However, at some point during the attack, they discovered that they had picked up the wrong person but still chose to move forward with the murder.
