Armando Manuel Caballero Wiki – Armando Manuel Caballero Biography
Agents have released the 911 call and incident report of a robbery suspect who died in an apparent suicide. Armando Manuel Caballero, 27, was found in an apartment complex in Seminole County, Florida, on Monday, authorities said.
That happened the same day that agents in neighboring Orange County announced that he had expressed a romantic interest in his co-worker Miya Marcano, 19, and then sneaked into her apartment shortly before she disappeared.
“We found a suicide on a property,” said a woman, whose name was removed from the audio. “Someone hanged himself from a garage.”
The person she called said this garage was used to store paint.
Armando Manuel Caballero Age
Armando Manuel Caballero was 27 years old.
Cause of Death
According to the incident report, members of the maintenance team said they discovered Caballero dead. The garage used to be unlocked, but not this time.
“When they arrived this morning to allow the paint crew access to supplies, they found that the door was locked,” the officers wrote. “Then they drilled the [lock], which is a common practice when they don’t have a key, and when they opened the door they saw the deceased.”
A deputy wrote about seeing Caballero “partially suspended” from the garage railings by a red band. The 27-year-old’s feet were an inch off the ground. He was wearing a gray shirt and black gym shorts. Caballero was in the early stages of decomposition, wrote a deputy. Blood was pouring from his ears and mouth, and he was in the initial process of rigor mortis, with stiff joints.
“Maintenance employees reported that the last time anyone on their staff entered the garage was Friday night,” wrote an officer. “Therefore, Mr. Caballero entered the garage sometime after the night of September 24, 2021, but before the morning of today, September 27, 2021.”
The apparent suicide remains under investigation. Caballero lived in the Winter Park, Florida area, not in the apartment complex where he died, Seminole County Sheriff’s Public Information Manager Kim Cannaday told Law & Crime.
Caballero a person of interest in Marcano’s disappearance
Marcano was last seen on Friday, Sept. 24, Orange County deputies said. Sheriff John Mina told reporters at a news conference Monday that at the time of his disappearance, Marcano was an employee and a tenant at the Arden Villas apartments, where Caballero worked as maintenance. Caballero expressed a romantic interest in the young woman, but she repeatedly rejected him.
The deputies consider Caballero a person of interest in Marcano’s disappearance. According to Sheriff Mina, Caballero told investigators in the initial investigation that he last saw Marcano at 3 p.m. Friday, about two hours before she was last seen. But the allegation is that Caballero actually used a passkey to break into Marcano’s apartment at 4:30 p.m. that day. Sheriff Mina said authorities obtained a robbery warrant against Caballero for this.

The investigation continues.
“Our sole purpose is to find Miya,” the sheriff said. Authorities recovered Caballero’s silver Ford Fusion, labeled Florida PZUJ17. Mina called on the public to give any information about Marcano and Caballero: “As I said, we have already recovered that vehicle, but we want to know any circumstance in which someone has seen it in that vehicle and where they were.”
Marcano’s family expressed hope that their loved one is still alive
“I know you’re alive,” her aunt Pia Scarbriel Henry said at the press conference. “I know you’re out there. We love you. You know our family is strong. You know our family is great. You know we’ll never sleep one night until we get you home. We miss you.”
The deputies described Marcano as black, with brown hair and green eyes. He is 5’0 ″ and weighs 130 pounds.
