A Florida Uber Eats driver was killed and dismembered after delivering food to the home of a known “demonic” gang member, according to authorities.
Oscar Solis, 30, is accused of randomly killing Randall Cooke, 56, at a home in Holiday, Florida, and dumping his remains in trash cans.
Investigators say they also found the victim’s wedding ring and car keys at the house where she left food on April 19.
“He’s a very violent individual,” Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco said of the suspect. “Now we have a hard-working guy, a loving husband who is no longer with us because he was killed by this violent man.”
The sheriff went on to describe the murder as “a horrible crime of passion.”
“This person, you always say the word evil, but this is demonic,” Sheriff Nocco said. “This guy is, what he did, it was demonic.”
Solis, who is described as 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds, worked as a security at a strip club, according to an arrest affidavit.
He has been charged with murder while participating in a robbery, failure to register as a convicted felon, and violation of probation.
Authorities say the suspect is linked to the MS-13 gang in Indiana, where he was released from prison in January after serving four years for assault and robbery.
Investigators arrested him after obtaining video from the Florida home that showed the victim arriving with a food delivery but never leaving.
Video from the next day allegedly shows the suspect carrying several bags of trash to the side of the house.
Sheriff Rocco said when deputies went to the property they went through the trash bags and found the victim’s remains.
Pasco County is just north of Tampa, Florida, on the Gulf Coast.
