Detectives from the Miami-Dade Police Department’s Homicide Bureau have arrested Eugenio Farinas and charged him with murder in connection with the death in 2003, of Gladys Jorge.
Investigators say that on July 15, 2003, officers were dispatched to a home at 3963 SW 61st Avenue regarding an injured person. When they arrived they were met by Gladys Jorge’s mother and sister, who advised that she was inside the home and was unresponsive. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.
Homicide detectives who responded to the scene determined that Jorge shared the home with her boyfriend, Eugenio Farinas. Crime scene investigators retrieved bloody socks, underwear, and a towel from the bathroom and concluded that attempts had been made to clean up the scene.
Last December, DNA evidence recovered from the items were resubmitted for advanced analysis, and DNA matching Eugenio Farinas was found on the socks, underwear and towel.
Last Tuesday, August 11, he was arrested and charged.
