Miya Marcano is a 19-year-old lady who was reportedly killed by the Maintenance Manager of her apartment after saying NO to his proposal.
Miya’s lifeless body was found days after she was declared missing.
Miya Marcano’s body was discovered near the dilapidated Tymber Skan apartments on Saturday morning, according to Orange County Sheriff John Mina.
The body was discovered around 10:45 a.m. in a wooded area near the Holden Heights apartment complex. Mina said search parties combed the area Saturday morning after the prime suspect, 27-year-old Armando Caballero cellphone,’s data placed him nearby hours after Marcano’s disappearance.
He added that the agency obtained those records on Wednesday. Caballero once lived at Tymber Skan apartments, according to Mina.
An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death, and a medical examiner will positively identify Marcano, though Mina stated that deputies are confident it is her because her purse containing her ID was discovered nearby.
Miya Marcano’s friends have paid tribute to her and spoken passionately about male dominance where some men feel they need to jealously deal with women who turn down their proposals.
