DJ Seasunz: A Murder Kills a Nightlife Scene
Photo by Stian Roenning

It was 9:45 a.m. on October 11, 2009, when Juan Carlos Portieles parked his beat-up Toyota Camry on a quiet side street in Cutler Bay. Tall and heavyset, with close-cropped brown hair and traces of stubble on his jaw, the 30-year-old DJ walked several blocks to a cluster of condominiums with beige walls and red-tiled roofs.

He approached a nondescript door and knocked. Isabelle Congote answered. Twenty-four years old and pretty, with light brown hair and thin arched eyebrows, she wasn't happy to see Portieles. He had frantically called her house earlier that morning but wouldn't say much, only that he was in trouble, had gotten into a fight the previous night, and wanted to come over. Now he was pacing in the living room. His hazel-green eyes, usually half-closed and sunken into his face, were wide and bloodshot, as if he hadn't slept all night. He wouldn't stop cursing, and every now and then, he would say to no one in particular, "What am I going to do?" She thought he was still high or drunk from the night before.

Initially, he said a bunch of random guys had beaten him up at a gas station near Club Space in downtown Miami. But after a few minutes, Portieles changed his story. There had been no mugging. His fight had been with his 18-year-old girlfriend, Jaclyn Torrealba. They had been dancing at Space but began arguing inside the club and continued as he drove her home to Kendall. Finally, on a lonely stretch of road near Florida's Turnpike, he pulled the car over and began to punch and bite Torrealba. Then he put his hands around her throat and strangled her until she stopped moving. Her body, he said, was in the front seat of the Camry.

At first, Congote doubted he was serious. Then she noticed his hands, bruised and swollen. She saw the blood on his pants, the scratches on his face, and the cut on his lip. When he asked how to dispose of the body, there was nothing to suggest it was a sick practical joke — only the terrifying realization that the man in her house had killed a teenage girl only a few hours earlier.

For Miami's nightlife denizens, Jaclyn Torrealba's killer wasn't known as Juan Carlos Portieles. He was Seasunz, a DJ and promoter whose name seemed to be on every club and event flyer in the city. He had once been an honors student, but drugs and an inexplicable mental meltdown had transformed him into a perpetually drunk wannabe who would hand out his CDs to people waiting in line at the hottest nightclubs and hype himself as the next big thing. Then, this past July, a jury sent him to prison for life without parole. The man who had ruled the all-ages world had used his influence to seduce and kill a young woman. His arrest and the subsequent publicity dealt a death blow to a scene that once lit up America's best-known party metropolis: Miami, Florida.

Slide show: DJ Seasunz: Murder Ends Miami's All-Ages Club Scene.


At home in Hollywood, Eduardo Portieles paces in his living room and sobs. Shirtless and gaunt, with disheveled gray hair and round-rimmed glasses, he laments the life of Juan Carlos — the eldest of his two children — and the death of Jaclyn. "We miss her as if she were our own. I lost a daughter and a son," he weeps, tears gushing from his green eyes.

At the back of the house, in a room lined with floor-to-ceiling shelves full of vinyl records, stands a five-foot-tall file cabinet. The 54-year-old Portieles opens one of the drawers and pulls out a thick folder of loose-leaf paper. There are 96 sheets — diplomas, honor roll certificates, and elementary school spelling awards — all bearing Juan Carlos's name. Tears flowing, he flips through them, reading out each commendation and bit of praise. "You think this kid," he says, pausing on an award from Flagami Elementary School, "is the monster everyone has shown [on television]?"

Eduardo and his wife, Fidelia, didn't raise a monster, he says, alternating between broken English and rapid-fire Spanish. Their boy was a genius. He was reserved, quiet, and thoughtful. All he wanted to do was play music and bring people joy. Eduardo gestures at the vinyl LPs, some 14,000 in all. "He dedicated his whole life to this."

Juan Carlos was born January 21, 1979, in Sancti Spiritus, the capital city of a province in central Cuba. He was just over a year old when his parents left the country in the Mariel boatlift. They arrived in Miami on June 8, 1980, and moved around the city, finally settling in Hollywood in 2004 in a one-story pink stucco house purchased for $182,000 that Eduardo says Juan Carlos helped buy.

Throughout his childhood, he consistently impressed his teachers, from Flagami Elementary to Glades Middle School and up through Southwest Senior High. His transcript from Southwest is littered with A's, and he graduated in the top 5 percent of his class, 24th out of 515 students. Juan Carlos did so well, Eduardo says, that he could have finished high school early and gone to college at age 16.

This article was incredibly insensitive! I REALLY hope it’s not true that the photo is the actual photo of young Jackie’s hand. This is not CSI Miami. These are real people. Their ONLY daughter. These are extremely devoted and caring parents. To publish this kind of amateur article is just completely tactless and crude. Extremely disturbing for the writer to include Eduardo's quote. When I read she "was the sacrifice of the lamb"  I literally felt sick to my stomach so I can only imagine how her mother felt. The ONLY thing I will mention is I do like that the writer included some of Portieles’s history. I feel the story if anything should have been more focused on the workings of a psychotic mind. We need more information on why these crimes happen, what they look for in their victims, what drives people to do these things, what kind of families produce these kinds of behaviors, how can we prevent more abuse. So many abusers have been abused. I think as a community we not only have to bring awareness to abuse but we need to bring awareness as to why people abuse, the traits they exhibit so we can spot these people out and prevent these things from happening. We need more counselors, therapy centers. So many people are dealing with past abuse issues (I know so many people that have been abused and you never know because people keep their secrets hidden). So many people probably just do not know where to turn and when you do look for counseling they are sometimes very expensive. Abuse turns into pain and fear, pain into anger and out of anger people commit the most atrocious crimes. We all deal with our issues differently. Many people will be abused and will never grow up to hurt another but that hidden pain remains and causes them to lash out, some worse than others. My heart cries out for her parents. This story is so near to my heart. Her father was my science teacher in middle school. Her mother lives only blocks from my house, I graduated from Braddock, I studied political science at FIU. I remember being Jackie's age and my parents forbidding me to date someone. It's been 10 years since then and now as an adult I see all my mistakes. You think your parents don't know what they are talking about but they do. They are the ONLY ones that will ALWAYS look out for you. At 18 you think you are finally an adult, the world is at your feet, so many possibilities. You want to do it all, see it all. But the world is also a scary place. You need to protect yourself at all times. Form packs with your friends and codes when you go out. In my group we would come together and always leave together. What you choose to do after would be on you but take care of your friends. Wait to see them walk into their houses to leave when dropping them off, never leave a friend behind, never let a friend leave with a guy, ALWAYS watch your drinks, never leave a drink unattended and cover your drink with your hand. So many people out there slip things into drinks without you even realizing it. Always be aware of your surroundings. And please young people LOOK OUT FOR YOUR FRIENDS. If you think your friend is in a bad situation, talk to an adult or the person’s parent. You might lose a friend for a few weeks, but not for a lifetime. So many good kids that come from good homes do not understand that there are BAD PEOPLE out there. Whether they are bad because they have been abused or bad because that’s what’s inside them they are not like you. There are people that come from dark places, have experienced things you would never dream of. Do not think you can be a savior. Look at a person’s history, if they have hurt someone in the past, they can do it again. To the parents of Jackie, may god be with you both. From all the articles we all can tell that you are both DEDICATED, AMAZING and LOVING parents. You did everything you could to protect your daughter and raise her right. In an instant, a monster took it all away. If only the world had more parents and people like you. My thoughts are always with you and I will always carry prayers in my heart for you both. May god somehow give you peace. New Times: please release a correction and clarification for the careless reporting of inaccurate facts, improper misquotes and bias misrepresentations.

Miami New Times has definitely choose to be a yellow journalistic kind of paper, where the gore, scandalous, promiscuous, bloody, violent, criminal, deaths, drugs, prostitution, slandering storing get to be prominently treated and display here. What one day started as an "alternative voice" in Miami journalism has become a sore eye in this city of ours; if this is the best alternative journalism a large metropolis like Miami has to offer, we are really in trouble.

 

Miami New Times has gotten to a new low. The picture of the dead girl, (worst if its the actual hand of the dead lady) is so crass, insensitive and low, I have no words to describe it.

 

Miami New Times you really need to get a check out. You are becoming an annoying and painful embarras to the resident of Miami Dade County.

Its truly disturbing the way this article has been written. The mere fact that something as simple as the sentencing was wrong truly comes to show how unprofessional the author is. The fact that you disrespected my friend's family and put a picture of her deceased hand is by far one of the rudest things you have done to the Torrealba family. At first I though it was merely a picture trying to get an emotional appeal from its readers and then I come to find out that its actually her hand! That is so disrespectful and uncalled for! There were enough pictures included in the article as it is, and there was no need to show Jackie in that light. The focus on this article did in fact bring light to Seasunz demented life, but it saddens me that the accounts spoken about in this article seem to merely try to justify his actions, when there is clearly no justification for what he did. Quoting the fact that he considered Jaclyn's death his salvation is tearing up so many family members and friends, and there was absolutely no sympathy for them when you though it would be okay to post all the crazy things him and his father told you. The article's title is deceiving as well, making it seem as if your goal was to enlighten people about the dangers of the "all age" club scene, yet all you simply did was talk about Seasunz and his life. This is such a bias article, that absolutely shined no light on Jackie and all the good things she did and the good person she was. Seeing all these upset comments should truly shine some light for the publisher for assigning such a cruel and unprofessional person, who did not comply with his supposed goal for this article, twisting words and remarks and making Seasunz look like a mere victim of abuse when in fact, he was simply INSANE!!!! And is clearly insane if these are all the things he was telling you! What a twisted way to present a story.

This article is truly disturbing. I don't know how Mr. Jon Taylor had the audacity to write this and Miami New Times to publish this! First of all, this nowhere nearly represents the truth to what happened to my best friend Jackie. I thought this article was suppose to represent ACTUAL FACTS along with alerting the public of the real dangers that are out there; that there are sick sociopaths out there! Everything from the title to the picture used in this piece of "writing" is insulting. A murder didn't kill a nightlife scene (as it does still exist out there!) A murder involved my friend and affected many lives she left behind. The ones who DO truly and sincerely love and miss her... Not the psychos in the monster's family who took her life! How dare you, JON, publish his father saying he misses and loved Jackie as a daughter he never had?! Even if that was part of his conversation with you, you should have been a bit more professional. That is insulting and hurtful to Jackie's family and friends!! They have not the least idea of how painful it is to not have Jackie amongst us anymore! I can't believe Seasunz's whole life was written about, as if it were relevant to this case. I also cannot believe this article was so biased into only showing one side of not even the crime he committed, but of his psychotic relatives. It is a true shame Jackie's family and friends ever gave this writer the time of day and above all, the TRUST to write about her to get a good message to the youth across. For this piece of junk, it was honestly better left unwritten. Complete unprofessionalism from this agency and its writer caused misleading information and ended up not getting the message out: which again, are the dangers that are lurking in all age club scenes! Next time, at least get your facts straight Taylor, because for the record, you weren't even able to get the sentencing accurately.

The Miami New Times should be ashamed of publishing a love letter to a killer instead of an accurate account of a senseless tragedy. I am shocked that the author would choose to end this article with a melodramatic, masturbatory, and extremely callous quotation from the defendant's obviously derranged father. While the New Times and its mentally deficient staff writers usually save their ire and irony for various local law enforcement agencies, its nice to see that no story, no matter how recent or painful, is immune from poor, one - sided reporting designed to inflame the community it purports to inform. Miami and the victim's family deserve better.

No sympathy for this drug by choice user junkie! If you got raped now that your a grown man why not kill the guy who raped you? Love? Oh your gonna get plenty of loving in jail now big boy, you had a choice and made all the bad one's. Feel bad for the victim's parents who did everything possible in a legal way to try and save their daughter, sometimes you need other alternatives in taking care of the problem :)

I don't comprehend the contempt some of the users feel towards this article. The writer did a great job in providing a candid, unsympathetic,  accurate report on not only the crime but the perpetrator, (of course for the exception of the sentencing of the crime). Just because the article did not create  a sympathy  sob  story on behalf of the victim does not merit criticism for bad journalism, it's not their jobs. Nor does it make the story or the crime any less significant. However, I do share the belief more should have been said on the overall all ages party scene in Miami and the dangers it creates for gullible and impressionable youths.

To the Miami Times, first I would like to say that, this reporter needs to be dismissed. Along with the editor that aloud this one sided story to be printed. This story should of been about a lovely sweet young lady who's young life was tragically taken from her and from her parents that she adored and they in turn adored her. Instead we read about the predator, his family, & his life... Really ? You didn't even get the facts right? It was painful read, a photo that should of never been public. Could you at the very least respected the young woman we lost? As far as he DJ, I won't refer to him by name, he got enough publicity from you. He had choices, when he was young, and when he was an adult, he choose the path he took. This article was disturbing on so many levels. Jon Tayler you should be ashamed of yourself how unprofessional & how intensitive to the Torrealba/Castro family. You did no justice to this story. My prayers are for Jackie and her family she can rest in peace now. I thank god that you were not on that jury ~ Justice 4 Jackie was served and this person will never harm another. For you young ladies out there, listen to your parents, listen to your friends when they see something that just doesn't seem right. Jackie taught us all a very big lesson.

Wow this article is really disturbing. I felt compelled to register an account not to just bash this poor excuse of flesh for the unforgivable act he committed..but also to bring  light to this  Jon Tayler and his New Times editor...Even before reading  I stopped at the HEADLINE without having any knowledge to anything or anyone in this article and thought immediately " Wow..a young girl was murdered and all this title wants to reflect is  the death of the ALL AGES scene????? I cram to understand the insensitivity people have these days.  One day you guys will learn the hard way on how you make people feel with these articles. My sympathies are to Jackies parents they seem like such great parents .  My last comment is about the Portieles family...how sad, ignorant and incapable of raising  a child these people are. Who cares what grades Juan Carlos got in Elementary!!  The question is WHAT DID YOU DO his teenage/semi-adult years??????? The PORTIELES family is a failure to society. This JUAN CARLOS idiot drove to several family members homes TOLD THEM about HIS ACTIONS and none of them reported him???? He had to drive around for hours then turn himself in????!!!!!!!   Eduardo Portieles...you sir are  a FAILURE to FATHERHOOD...30 years old letting him do whatever he wants all drugged up coming home to mommy and daddy????   "This girl's death saved my life," he says. "Jaclyn was the sacrifice of the lamb. Without her death, I would not be a believer." He begins to cry. "She is in my heart, and I know the Lord has her in a safe place."  WHAT PLANET are the PORTIELES from???  How could you call Jaclyn a Sacrifice to the Lamb???  I've heart it all!!!!    JUAN CARLOS deserves to die and not live. The LORD forgives but does not forget.  Juan Carlos could pray ALL HE WANTS but his destiny has been set and there are no All ages parties in the after life. EDuardo you can cry every minute for the rest of your life and no sympathy will be felt.

 

The real victims are Jaclyns family and friends. May God bless you guys and continue to provide strength

As a member of the jury who sentenced Juan Carlos to FIRST DEGREE murder, I swore to myself once we read our verdict, I would never read/speak/think about this tragedy ever again.  And unfortunately, today I found myself engulfed in this article.  You do NO justice for anyone with this article, not for Jackie not for Juan Carlos and certainly not for their respective families.  This is a tragedy, a loss of life, a young life and to think you can't even get his sentencing straight is beyond words.  If any readers are interested in this tragedy, wait for the court transcripts to become available and really educate yourselves on the matter.  This article has left a horrible taste in my mouth and  The Miami New Times has lost a devote reader.

"Dear Jon, I read the story and I found it hard to read.  First, the picture of Jackie's deceased hand on the article was terrible and hurtful to me.  You did not  respect Jackie nor her family,  I found it tasteless and uncalled for to publish this article with her deceased hand in front view.  Secondly, you wrote the wrong verdict in the article.  He was convicted of 1st DEGREE MURDER without Parole not Second Degree!  Why can't publisher's get a simple verdict right is out of my knowledge due to all of the research done on a case? I never told you that we encouraged Jackie to socialize.  My exact words were, "I placed her in cheer and dance, at the age of 8, so she could have a positive outlet. To make her a well rounded individual." And finally, as usual, the focus is on the wrong (the monster who murdered my daughter and his crazy family) this article disappointed me.  You never looked into how predators lure young teens and what safety issues arise in order to teach others appropriate information for safety and warning signs. How these all ages club NEVER look into the independent contractors background for criminal/felony offenses to work in the clubs with minors. I thought you came to hear both sides of the story but you actually just wrote about one side.  Yes, you added some of Pablo's statements but even the headline; DJ Seasunz: A Murder Kills a Nightlife Scene! No he MURDERED MY DAUGHTER!!!!!!!!!! All ages clubs are still here and will be here because of teens wanting to go out to have fun.  But, No!!! He Murdered Jackie Torrealba my daughter who I love and cherish.  Who I find hard to live without! Who is NOT here! This monster is a murderer! He lives and my daughter is dead because of him! It was proven in the court that they were not a couple by various witnesses also hence, again NOT Jackie's side of the story! And overall,  this monsters father is just as crazy as the monster who murdered my daughter! What he said in your article is bizarre! Your research was complete on one side of the story...Portieles side. But, Jackie Torrealba's side was missing.  Obviously, it doesn't get the ratings your editor and you, the publisher would like but our family has been destroyed and this endless misery just added one more experience to this pile..yours." " May Jackie rest in Peace and may she know that she was also there witnessing the trial and she celebrated her verdict; 1ST DEGREE MURDER W/O PAROLE towards this MONSTER! This is what GOD and Jackie wanted Justice for Jackie and A LIFE SENTENCE FOR THIS MONSTER! NO FORGIVENESS...NOT HERE OR IN HEAVEN AS THIS CREEP THINKS!" VILMA CASTRO (JACKIE'S MOTHER)

What sickens me the most about this tragedy, is his fathers justification for the death of this young girl. "This girl's death saved my life," he says. "Jaclyn was the sacrifice of the lamb. Without her death, I would not be a believer." He begins to cry. "She is in my heart, and I know the Lord has her in a safe place." Really? Maybe you could've saved your life with sacrificing the life of another!

 @erika-215 You know, you talk about it being one-sided but only because it wrote about both sides. If you got what you wanted, and he wrote only about how great your friend was, then it WOULD BE a one-sided article. This story has touched me and I can't even fathom the thought but this is journalism, revealing truths. While I do not know either the victim or the suspect, I feel the writer did a good job of capturing both aspects. Anyone in their right mind can understand that when the father of the suspect (a murderer) says he "lost the daughter he never had" the author is respectfully calling him a lunatic. Dont be so mean to the writer. Sympathy for your friend and her family has been on my mind since I read this article the other day.

 @xlz5224

 This is a subjective, qualitative article by the publisher.  It is not to request sympothy but to bring out the real story.  The real story is not in this article but in the docets of the court.  It is not an accurate account of the murder.  Obviously, this magazine are for hipters looking for club scene, restauranct, etc... This is a beginner publisher who did not comprehend or knew how to bring this story to reality, to knowledge, and to have a nuetral unsympathetic report (as you state); this is why the title of the article is so disturbing and inappropriate.  And, how it is a one sided event of the research...Portielies bizarre families.  Clubs are still here especially all ages club which is what this magazine promotes therefore, in saying this, it is understood the reason for the "unfelt title, the inappropriate picture of a young girls death, and the completely wrong sentencing provided," represents the insufficiency of the reporter.  I have ended this conversation as it does no good to elaborate how pathetic this article is and will stop reading and obviously use this to bring awareness to the poor publishers ethical and professional persona.  Remember, one person can bring awareness, continuous awareness can bring a business down, and then its reputation as I (Vilma Castro Torrealba) will do. Anyone who is asked to sit down with any of the publishers from THE MIAMI NEWS TIME should never accept it as these articles are for amature publishers. Stay with advertising for the club scenes, restaurants, business ads, and wisky making which is what your magazine is all about.

 "This girl's death saved my life," he says. "Jaclyn was the sacrifice of the lamb. Without her death, I would not be a believer." This is very disturbing to me and I am asssuming to those who read this article.  They are all delinquents, liers, and cowards.  JPortieles MURDERED my only child, she had just turned 18, wanting to be alone, wanting to study at FIU, and major in law.  She was too young to understand the manipulation and the control a freak like Portieles could have on her (Remember he was 30 at the time).  She never thought someone could do the unthinkable to her (and especially an adult).  I hope, somehow, by our conversations about this article there are young teens out there who can be helped, who might be in a similar situation and FOR THEM TO SPEAK OUT! Don't be afraid to speak out and tell the ADULTS that love you, the most, what you are going through because they will be the ones left with the anguish, the pain, the loss, and thier own death sentence if they loss you.  Because althought JPortieles is in jail ... we, Jackie's parents are living our own sentence of loss, of emptiness, and despare. There is no life without our Jackie and to live this pain is torturous for the rest of our lives.  An advice to teens/young adults; do not count on your friends to help you.  They are in their own world of issues.  They think about themselves.  Please speak up and if you have a person who is  or appears to be obsessed with you SPEAK UP! Thank you POLORICAN*1276, for your comments and for your kindness.  May GOD also bless you and yours.  Vilma Castro Torrealba (Jackie's mom).

Reading about these crazy people makes me angry, sad, and in disbelief of how a family can be SO DISFUNCTIONAL!

 I thank you for your words, for your attentiveness in court, and for the verdict.  You all made the right choice.  This MONSTER would have murdered again.  He has a repetitive, abusive demeanor without remorse.  When he had a chance to speak to us he said, "I could have done worse to her." that was his forgiveness.  It was horrible! A sociopath! This article is just for sensationalism and not for real, informative, intelligent, reporting.  Thank you again, Vilma Castro Torrealba (Jackie's mom).

 @cvilma104 I'm sorry you had to read this also. I know first-hand how disgusting, twisted, and outright WRONG these "news" accounts of tragedies are. Please try not to look at any of the garbage people post online. Most of them have no idea how the people in real life feel - nor do they care.

I'm glad they got this guy behind bars for life, but I know it's no consolation for anyone who loved your daughter. As a mother, I can't even imagine the pain.

We are all very sorry for your loss. That said, you should  try staying away from the web stories about your daughter's murder. You will not find the answers you are looking for... because there are none. The internet will only serve to frustrate you even more.

 

I hope that one day you and Pablo are able to find peace.

What about his statement : " Without her death , I would not be a believer " ? Can this sick old man stop making everything about him and his monster of a son? A believer of what you mean, you imbecil? A believer that you are scum that raised scum? A believer that you created a monster that was praying on children at the parties he thrown? A believer that you also are a loser and a failure in every aspects of life? What really do you believe now that needed a beautiful young girl to be murdered ? Believe on this , you underachieving scum, we hope you and your sick spam burn in hell. And it sounds very sick the way yountalk about Jacklyn. You demented delusional parent. Didn't you see any signs when you had a parasite for a son, living at home at 30 years old? What about when he had a girlfriend half his age? Any signs of the crazy genes? You should had kept your eyes on your sicko spam when he beat up his first girlfriend and monitor his actions, you crying loser. YOU CRY OF SHAME AND GUILT. THAT IS WHAT YOU CAN'T LIVE WITH, THE THOUGHTBTHAT SOMETHING WENT VERY WRONG WHEN YOUNRAISED THAT CRIMINAL. YOU SURE KNOW MORE THAN ANYONE ALL OF IT...
