SOUTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. – On Friday morning, a woman who had the responsibility to handle a storage facility in South Miami-Dade was found dead inside the building. The case is under investigation.
On Thursday at about 6:30 a.m., a concerned individual reported to the police that the woman had not got back home after closing the facility and she was also not receiving the call. Dade Police Detective Jennifer Capote told, “She called, and she believed her friend was abducted”.
Miami-Dade Police found the dead body in the facility’s back office that was located at 10505 Marlin Road. Her body was removed by the medical examiner just after 6 p.m.
The family members of Cuni told that she handled the facility and lived on the property.
According to investigators, the woman who died was identified as 54-year-old Laura Cuni. She was killed sometime between closing the facility on Thursday, at about 6 p.m. and Friday early morning.
It is not confirmed how she died. Capote added, “Foul play is suspected”.
Cuni was found by the cops tied up and it was confirmed she had been murdered, according to the 7News sources.
Individuals who had friendly ties with Cuni were sad to hear the news of her murder. Brian Lugo said, “I’ve seen her and talked with her, yes. Very sweet, sweet lady she was, willing to help anybody”.
The detectives stayed on the accident spot for the whole day to gather clues and to inquire about the incident by the neighboring businesses.
Stephanie McGill who owns a business in the area said, “These detectives came and questioned me”. She added that she went home around 10 p.m. on Thursday night, but had no idea she would come back to a crime spot. “[I feel] scared, worried. I have kids that are normally here with me. I have a lot of families that come here to get things embroidered”.
Capote encouraged individuals with any clue or information to tell the police, no matter how small the information is. She added, “If there’s anything you may have seen after 6 o’clock, even if you think it’s minimal, whether it was somebody walking by, whether it’s somebody leaving the facility, any vehicles parked in the area, please call Crime Stoppers”.
A reward of $1,000 will be given to the individual who will come forward and tell anything about the murder case. Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers can be called at 305-471-TIPS.
