Juan Manuel Oliva and Sheila Mora Identified As Couple in Miami Beach Murder-Suicide

Police have released the identity of the couple involved in yesterday's apparent murder-suicide in Miami Beach.

Thirty-five-year-old Sheila Mora was found stabbed to death in the couple's apartment, Unit 3707 in the beachfront Akoya building on 6365 Collins Avenue. Police discovered her body after they were called earlier yesterday morning about a possible jumper. By the time they arrived they found the body of her husband, 42-year-old Juan Manuel Oliva, dead on the south side of the building.

Mora had jumped 37 stories to his death from the condo where Mora's body lay lifeless riddled with multiple stab wounds. Police believe it may have been a murder-suicide.
