        Police said that they conducted a two-month investigation into the brutal death of the Labor Officer, which led to Alberto Coleman, her ex-boyfriend.

      On Friday, July 3, Cardinez’s decomposing body was found in her room on Jose Maria Street in Punta Gorda by her family members who went to Punta Gorda to look for her after she was reported missing on Wednesday, July 1.

        Initially, Coleman was detained, but he was later released due to insufficient evidence.

He was charged with murder at the police station, and today, Coleman was taken to the Punta Gorda Magistrate’s Court, where he was arraigned on the charge.
