“Our hearts are broken. Hundreds of Orange County Sheriff’s Office staff were committed to this case and worked very hard. They all wanted this outcome to be different,” Mina said. “As a community, as a parent, we are grieving the loss of Miya. We cannot imagine the pain that Miya’s family, loved ones, friends, and truly our entire community has been through.”
At a press conference on Monday, September 27, the police announced that Armando Manuel Caballero, 27, a ‘person of interest’ in Marcano’s death, had committed suicide. Orange County Sheriff John Mina said Caballero expressed a romantic interest in Marcano, which she repeatedly denied. On Monday, September 27, a maintenance master key, known to Caballero to have, was used to enter Marcano’s apartment 30 minutes before the end of his shift. Police issued an arrest warrant for Caballero for robbery related to his trespassing into Marcano’s apartment, John Mina said.
Marcano was scheduled to take a flight from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale to visit his family the day he disappeared. She never boarded the plane. Marcano’s friends and family held a prayer vigil on September 26 urging the community to come forward and help them find her. The vigil was held at the Arden Villas Apartments, where Marcano was last seen before her disappearance. Community members gathered as Marcano’s family urged them to do their part to help find her daughter.
Marcano’s case draws Internet attention when the news comes after another missing woman was found dead. Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old vlogger, disappeared after taking a trip across the country with her boyfriend Brian Laundrie. After Petito’s body was found, Laundrie, who was named a ‘person of interest’ in the case, disappeared, prompting a manhunt for him. Her whereabouts are currently unknown.
