More than 96 hours have passed since the authorities began investigating the case, there are still many elements missing to clarify what happened on April 12 on the highway.

The Seminole County Sheriff, Dennis M. Lemma, revealed that the Hispanic woman was traveling from Miami-Dade to Central Florida, presumably to visit relatives.

The moment of her abduction was recorded by an unknown person, who upon seeing the chase at the intersection of East Lake Drive and Tuskawilla Road, in the Winter Springs area, called 911 for help.

Thanks to these images, the police were able to locate the suspicious car and there was evidence of how the misfortune began for the Hispanic woman’s children.

The Seminole County Sheriff said it appears Katherine Guerrero was sitting in her white Dodge Durango pickup truck.

At that moment, according to a witness’ video, a white or Hispanic man, dressed all in black and with his face covered, approached the car and pointed at her.

The stranger was traveling in an Acura model car, which was recovered abandoned in an apartment complex in Orange County, but there are still no traces of who was driving it.

It was easy to recover because it was the only car of that model on the road in Florida, Sheriff Dennis M. Lemma said during a news conference.

When referring to the officer in custody, the sheriff assured that so far Francisco Estrella, an Orange agent, is not linked to the death and disappearance of the Hispanic woman.

However, Lemma claims, Estrella illegally accessed the Florida Driver and Vehicle Information Database (DAVID).

This to obtain personal information from Seminole County detectives investigating the case.

Guerrero was found dead in the white truck she was driving on the day of the kidnapping. Forensic authorities have not yet confirmed the cause of her death and her body remains in the morgue.

In preliminary investigations, agents are leaning toward the suspect and Katherine knowing each other, but investigators are still trying to piece everything together. To determine the relationship between the victim and her aggressor.

The sheriff ruled out the possibility that Guerrero’s husband, Miguel Ángel Aguasvivas Lizardo, was involved in her disappearance.

Through him, the agents knew where the victim was going.

Detectives asked anyone with information about this case to call the Seminole County Sheriff’s Officeat 1-800-423-8477.
