MIYA Marcano’s cause of death is still not known after the family’s attorney revealed that a “box cutter” was found in her apartment.
Family attorney Daryl Washington confirmed to WESH 2 that the Marcano family was sure the box cutter did not belong to Miya when they searched her apartment after the reported kidnapping.
Miya’s family plans to stay in the Orlando area until her autopsy has been completed after her body was found on Saturday.
Police named Armando Manuel Caballero, a maintenance worker at the apartment complex where Miya lived and worked, a person of interest in her death before he was found dead from an apparent suicide in a Seminole County apartment complex.
Remains that authorities believe belong to Miya were found in a wooded area at Tymber Skan apartments, 17 miles West of Arden Villas apartments in Orlando, where she lived and worked.
The 19-year-old Valencia College sophomore was last seen at around 5pm on September 24.
Though positive identification has yet to be made, a purse containing Miya’s ID was found near her body.
