Family of woman found dead at storage facility makes plea to the public

DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida family is making a plea to the public, Tuesday, for help in finding who killed their loved one.

Laura Cuni’s body was found in the back office at a Public Storage facility that she managed on Marlin Road in Cutler Bay back on June 24, at around 6:30 a.m.

Cuni’s father said she used to call him every night simply to check-in with him. The night before Cuni was murdered, her father tried calling multiple times, but she never picked up.

Miami-Dade Police found her body a day later at the he very place she worked for 15 years. Sources told 7News she appeared to have been tied up.

Now, Cuni’s family is making a plea to the public for answers. Her family told 7News they’re lost as to why anyone would want to hurt her.

“There’s one common thread when you speak of Laura,” said the victim’s niece, Diana Delgado, “and that’s that she was a good person. She always had a smile. She never had a raised voice. Always had a shoulder, always had time, and she was very special, so we’re here today to hopefully find someone who knows something, someone who may have seen something – if you could just please help us.”

Her family added that they’re confused, angry and that they want to grieve, but they can’t until they get answers.

“We’re not dealing with it yet because I can’t get to grief when there are more questions than answers,” Delgado said.

Her father said he never believed this could happen.

“It never occurred to me something like that would have happened,” Laura’s father, Juvenal Cuni said.

Police said information of any kind can help their investigation.

“Someone saw something,” MDPD Detective Daniel Ferrin said. “I don’t care how minimal it may seem.”

If you have any information on this homicide, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Her employer, Public Storage, has provided $25,000 to increase the $3,000 Crime Stoppers reward to $28,000.

Remember, you can always remain anonymous with tips to Crime Stoppers.
