The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed the “person of interest” in the case of a missing 19-year-old college student was found dead of an apparent suicide.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina identified the suspect as Armando Manuel Caballero, 27.

Caballero was wanted for questioning in the search for Miya Marcano who was last seen on September 24 at Arden Villas apartment complex where she lived and worked in Orlando, Florida.

Caballero was found dead in his apartment at Arden Villas on Monday, according to Mina. He had been dead “for quite some time”.

Miya worked in the leasing office at Arden Villas. Caballero began working at the complex as a maintenance man in June, and he also lived there.

Sheriff Mina said Caballero was romantically interested in Miya, and she repeatedly rejected his advances.

Mina said Caballero used a “master key fob” to enter Miya’s apartment at 4:30 pm, about 30 minutes before she got off work on September 24.

The petite college student attended Valencia University near the apartment complex. Police say foul play is suspected in her disappearance.

Her apartment showed signs of a struggle and the front door was barricaded from the inside.

Miya went missing hours before she was scheduled to fly to Fort Lauderdale to visit her parents.

An arrest warrant was issued after the complex manager told authorities that Caballero entered Miya’s apartment that day without permission.

Marcano’s grandmother, Joysue Thompson, told WESH 2 News that Miya was “the family’s princess.” She said the family believes she’s alive and they just want her brought home safe.

“All we ask you is help us bring Miya home. Bring her home safe, just drop her off and let us know where she is and we’ll pick her up – just bring her home.”

“Our deputies and investigators are working around the clock to find 19-year-old Miya Marcano,” Sheriff Mina said in a statement on Facebook.

“This is our first in-person event since relaunching and obviously, in the time of COVID, the event is going to look very different than it has in the past. We have Wayne Brady who’s hosting and he also has some very special performances planned for the event. So we’re excited about that. We have performances from Justine Skye, Erica Campbell, and Lucky Daye and we have some special awards that are given out.”

“Another element that I should add that we’ll be incorporating is that we launched this competition with Sprite and the winner will be announced and the person who wins the competition will get to be on the red carpet as an EBONY correspondent and talk to all the guests. So excited about that! And we’re bringing back the HBCU Campus Queens initiative, it has a different spin and it’s focused on STEM. We’re highlighting girls that are specifically in STEM programs and they are going to get to fly out and come to the event. They’ll have a moment on the red carpet on stage, and then these girls will actually be featured in EBONY’s first print edition that we’ll be launching next year.”

Britney Spears & Fiancé Sam Asghari Load Up On Fast Food Before Going For A Drive – Photos

Britney Spears & Fiancé Sam Asghari Load Up On Fast Food Before Going For A Drive – Photos

Sam Asghari appeared to be chowing down on a burger as he drove a white BMW in the Los Angeles area on Oct. 23 while Britney rode passenger.

Britney Spears, 39, and Sam Asghari, 27, were spotted out-and-about for a cruise and fast food run. Sam could be seen holding a burger (with a large bite out of it) as he drove a white BMW car in the Los Angeles area on Saturday, Oct. 23. Britney, who rode passenger, looked relaxed and casual as she threw her blonde hair up in a messy bun and sported a pair of sunglasses — see the photos via DailyMail here.

The sweet couple have been enjoying plenty of time together lately, including last weekend when they went for a an evening bike ride using lights. Britney, rocking a baby blue t-shirt and shorts, looked totally confident as she rode with Sam behind her, taking in the sights of her neighborhood.

Earlier this month, the pair also set off on a private jet as they headed to a tropical vacation in celebration of Britney’s conservatorship news: in early October, her father Jamie Spears was suspended from conservator role, which he held over her estate for 13 years. Jamie was replaced by certified public account John Zabel following the “Toxic” singer’s bombshell two court testimonies and numerous social media posts advocating for her freedom. On the jet, Brit and Sam enjoyed a stunning dessert platter as she took one step closer to justice.

Sam sweetly proposed to Britney after nearly five years on Sept. 12. The blonde was over the moon as she flashed her circle shaped engagement ring for an Instagram video alongside her handsome fiancé. In the video, Sam can be briefly heard asking, “look at that, you like it?” as Brit naturally gushed back, “yeah!” She also shared her excitement in a caption, penning, “can’t f***ing believe it!!!!!!” with a slew of engagement ring emojis.

It’s not actually France folks … it’s French territory 🇫🇷🏝🇵🇫 !!! Psss where should we get married 💍⛪️👰🏼‍♀️🤵🏽 ???

The duo have yet to set a date, but Brit most certainly has wedding bells on her mind — taking to TikTok with her “predicament” on Oct. 5. “I have no idea where I want to get married,” Britney confessed in the video while ridin in a golf cart. “We don’t know if we want to get married in Italy, or Greece, Australia, or New York City,” she pondered, as Sam suggested, “Why don’t you ask the fans?”
