Man kills his wife and throws her on the Everglade

Por Damian

Some cases take longer than others to be solved. Almost six years after the unexpected disappearance of Vilet Tórrez from her home in the city of Miramar, in the State of Florida, her husband Cid Tórrez was condemned to life imprisonment for having killed her and dumped her body in the Everglades.

The couple was married for 16 years and had three children. The killer, of 44 years old, was found guilty in July of the homicide of Vilet and while he should have been sentenced in October, the punishment was postponed when the accused pronounced odd declarations in court.

"Commander-in-chief, the witch hunt ends here," he said on several occasions before Judge Lisa Porter. When asked who he was referring to, Tórrez responded "Donald Trump". Given these phrases, the judge decided to delay the hearing to evaluate the mental health of the suspect before receiving the verdict.

According to the Sun Sentinel, after a proper assessment of his mental state, a psychologist said Cid Tórrez suffered from a disorder and would make use of treatment. For their part, lawyers from the prosecution mentioned with skepticism that the symptoms appeared after the man was found guilty, and not before.

The last time Vilet Tórrez was seen alive was on March 31, 2012, when security cameras recorded her driving her Toyota Sienna truck and entering the residential complex where she lived with her children. The woman allegedly was returning from a date with her boyfriend Zoe Rodríguez. Two weeks before the day of her disappearance, Vilet had told her husband that she wanted a divorce. Cid Torrez reported the disappearance of his wife to the authorities on April 2 of 2012 after claiming that he picked up his children on the afternoon of March 30 and returned to the house around midnight, but Vilet was not there.

In a court hearing, the couple's oldest daughter, also called Vilet Tórrez, said that the morning of the disappearance of her mother, she woke up when she heard noises coming from the first floor of the apartment."I heard screams, and crying, and on top of that my dad's voice," said the teenager, according to the Sun Sentinel newspaper. "He was saying 'No, wake up,' five or six times."

In the course of the investigation, two qualified dogs sensed odor of human remains in the suitcase and back seat of Tórrez's truck, as well as in the woman's house. Prosecutors believe that Cid Tórrez killed his wife in an act of rage and left her body lying in the Everglades the next day.
