A Florida man is facing murder and robbery charges after police found the dismembered remains of a food delivery driver in the trash outside his home, authorities announced Tuesday.
Police said the victim, who worked as a delivery driver for Uber Eats and DoorDash, was going about his deliveries on April 19 when he texted his wife to say he would be home soon because he had one more delivery to go. After not hearing from him for a while, the wife texted again, but received no response. After a few more hours passed with more texts that went unanswered, the wife then reported him missing.
Two days later, police went to the location of the last known delivery address, where the suspect’s roommate gave the police video showing the victim.
Just before 7 p.m. on April 19, “You can actually see the victim walking up to the house to deliver food, but the video cuts off at that point,” Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said at a press conference Tuesday. The next day, the footage showed, the suspect and one other person took out several bags of trash, Nocco said. When detectives searched the trash bags, they found human remains, Nocco said.
