Hialeah Woman Agreed to Marry Hitman for Killing Her Teacher Ex-Boyfriend
Dianelis de la Caridad-Fonseca, a 22-year-old Hialeah woman, and, Jose Martin Perez-Sanchez, a 21-year-old hitman, have been arrested for the murder of teacher, Richard Vasallo. Vasallo was found dead in the street just blocks away from his Cutler Bay home.
Vasallo was Caridad-Fonseca's ex-boyfriend. She's allegedly admitted to cops that she paid Perez-Sanchez $600 to commit the murder. She also promised to marry Perez-Sanchez, an immigrant, so he could become a citizen.
Vasello, 25, was spotted Thursday night walking along SW 216th Street and 98th Court. A 911 caller told authorities he was "very bloody." Police eventually found Vasello's dead body lying in a road about three blocks from his home. His car was parked a short distance away.
Vasello taught engineering at SIA Tech, and was a 2009 graduate of Florida International University.
