Police find blood inside home near scene where burned body was found

NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating a possible connection between blood found inside a Northwest Miami-Dade home and the nearby scene of a burned body found on the side of the road.

Miami-Dade Police responded to the residence along the 700 block of Northwest 146th Street, Friday morning. A woman was seen being consoled by friends and police outside the home, and a man was seen walking away as he wiped tears from his face.

“I think it’s awful,” said area resident Angelon Blash, “awful that they’re doing all of these crimes and nobody can catch them.”

Detectives are currently working to find out who the blood belongs to and how it got there.

This discovery comes two days after a burned body was found on the side of the road near the intersection of Northwest 142nd Street and 12th Avenue, just five blocks away from the home.

Police said they still haven’t identified the victims. They have not confirmed whether the two cases are connected and are investigating them separately.

Area residents said it has been an unsettling week for them. “You’re sitting here, you don’t know if you can walk out your door,” said Blash.

Now they hope police are able to apprehend the person or people responsible. “I just hope they catch them and find out what’s going on because it’s dangerous,” said Mara Ware. “We have to live here, and we have to go up and down these streets.”

The investigation is expected to last much of the day Friday.

If you have any information that can help police, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
