Missing woman in Osceola County found dead; 3 people arrested

"I get emotional because it just touches me so deeply that one of our citizens was killed in such a manner over mistaken identity", Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said.

Janice Marie Zengotita-Torres, 42, of Kissimmee, was reported missing by her husband on Monday morning after she didn't return home from work the previous night.

According to investigators, Ishnar Lopez-Ramos allegedly hired Glorianmarie Quinones-Montes and Alexis Ramos-Rivera to kill a woman in a relationship with a man she loved.

The pair allegedly mistook Zengotita-Torres for the target, but even after realizing she was the wrong person, they allegedly bound her and suffocated her with garbage bags, Gibson said.

The only similarity between Zengotita-Torres and the intended target was that they both worked at the same store, the report said.

The suspects tied Zengotita-Torres with zip ties, covered her head with a garbage bag then Rivera beat her until she was unconscious, according to authorities.

They drove the victim to an ATM and made her to hand over her PIN and ATM card, then Ramos withdrew cash from her account, authorities said.

Zengotita-Torres died of suffocation.

The suspects dumped her body near Tomoka Avenue and Bennett Lane in Ormond Beach late on January 7 or early the next day, the sheriff said. That woman, who was never harmed, and Zengotita-Torres, who was married and the mother of a 14-year-old boy, were co-workers.

Gibson said that's when Ramos and Rivera realized they had abducted the wrong person, but chose to continue with their plan.

'I don't say that lightly, that this woman lost her life for no reason. Investigators reportedly honed in on the trio after Lopez-Ramos used the victim's debit card.

One station reported that Gibson choked up as he announced the arrests.
