Surveillance shows clue in case of woman found dead in Miami street

MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are investigating the death of a woman who was found deceased in an industrial area of Miami.

Investigators worked for hours on the scene near Northwest 25th Avenue and 37th Street, Wednesday, to piece together what happened.

Officers first responded to the area at around 7 a.m. after someone reported spotting the woman, who appeared to be dead on the street.

Rescue crews later confirmed that she was indeed deceased.

Surveillance video from a nearby business showed a car pulling up before the headlights were turned off.

The car was stopped for several minutes before the driver got out, walked to the other side and opened the car’s door. In the video, it appears that the driver took something out and then drove off.

Officials said that was the same place where the woman’s body was later found.

Video captured what appeared to be the same car arriving on the scene in the early evening and then stopping for a while.

Miami Police detectives are now looking into what may have happened and are asking anyone with information to come forward.

“What we need is the help of the public. If anybody saw something, heard something, any cameras in the area that they can share with our detectives or with Crime Stoppers, that’s what we’re looking for,” said Miami Police Officer Michael Vega.

A man who works in the area did not want to be identified but told 7News that when he arrived for work, at around 6 a.m., he didn’t see a body.

“I don’t see the body [because] it’s too dark. It’s nighttime,” he said. “She in the wrong place.”

The woman’s identity is currently unknown, but people who work in the area said they recognize the woman as a regular there.
