Carrillo says he interviewed two of Aramburo's friends, who told him about a house at 35 Percival Ave. in Coconut Grove, at the time a known flophouse where Aramburo and her pals smoked crack. Carrillo says he received another tip, that Aramburo, after leaving Pacheco's apartment, went to that house, where she was allegedly killed by three individuals she knew, including a drug dealer who has a murder conviction.
I've chosen not to disclose their names until I've had an opportunity to verify Carrillo's claims.
Carrillo says he provided the names of the three men to Miami-Dade Police detectives investigating Aramburo's disappearance on four occasions. "They haven't done squat," Carrillo says.
This Sunday at 6 p.m., Forte will lead a march from CocoWalk to 35 Percival Ave., where she will hold a candlelight vigil in Aramburo's honor.
