Hitmen kidnap, torture, and murder wrong person

Hitmen kidnap, torture, and murder wrong person

Her body was found Tuesday.

Detectives say a Kissimmee woman was abducted and murdered after being mistaken for the intended target of a murder-for-hire plot.

The sheriff's office says the "murder-for-hire" became a case of "mistaken identity" and that the victim was not the intended target.

"This woman lost her life for no reason".

A woman's body was found in Ormond Beach on Monday and was later identified as Janice Marie Zengotita-Torres, who had been reported missing out of Osceola County, officials said.

Zengotita-Torres moved to Osceola County from Puerto Rico with her 14-year-old-son, husband and father about a year ago, investigators said. "This mother, this wife, this daughter - for no reason, at all", Gibson said.

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.

Zengotita-Torres was bound and suffocated with garbage bags, Gibson said.

Gibson said the suspects followed Zengotita-Torres after she left work at Ross on Sunday night and accosted her when she got home.

Lopez-Ramos then hired Alexis Ramos-Rivera and Glorianmarie Quinones Montes to carry out the murder, the station reported. They then drove to a nearby bank where they allegedly withdrew money from the woman's account using her ATM card, according to the sheriff's office.

The suspects took after the wrong lady out of the dim store and to her condo where they "coercively put the casualty into the back of her own vehicle, and afterward headed out", Gibson said.

"All three confirmed that this was a murder-for-hire and that the victim was mistakenly targeted and murdered", Gibson said.

Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson amid a news meeting Friday told correspondents the suspects purposefully focused on the 42-year-old Kissimmee inhabitant due to an instance of mixed up character. After questioning, Lopez-Ramos gave a full confession to authorities and revealed the location of the other two suspects who were then arrested. However, at some point during the attack, they discovered that they had picked up the wrong person but still made a decision to move forward with the murder.

All three suspects, originally from Puerto Rico, had recently relocated to Central Florida around Christmas, he said.
