“Demonic” MS-13 gang member Oscar Solis murdered and dismembered a Florida Uber Eats driver for “no reason,” officials said at a press conference Tuesday.
“This was a horrific crime of passion,” Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco told reporters. “What he did is demonic, but at the same time, we couldn’t answer the question why.”
“This person killed him for no reason.”
Randall Cooke, 59, vanished April 19 after sending his wife a text that said he was completing his last delivery near their home in the city of Holiday, north of Tampa. She never heard from him again.
She reported him missing, and Uber Eats provided authorities with his last known location on Moog Road.
Detectives visited the home April 21 and spoke to the suspect’s roommate, who provided video surveillance that showed Cooke approaching the door at 6:55 p.m. on April 19; there was no immediate answer, then the feed cuts out, Nocco said.
Solis was seen carrying trash bags outside the house the day after Cooke disappeared, and investigators were given permission to search the contents.
