Florida Man Arrested After Dismembered Food Delivery Driver Was Found In Trash

A Florida man is now in police custody after the dismembered remains of a food delivery driver were found in a trash bin outside of his home, CBS News reports.

On April 19th, the victim, who worked as a delivery driver for both Uber Eats and DoorDash, texted his wife to tell her he had one more delivery before being able to return home. That was the last time he spoke to her. After multiple texts and calls went unanswered, the woman notified police.

Two days later deputies from the Pasco Sheriff’s Office went to the home of the missing man’s last known delivery. There, the suspect’s roommate provided officials with video from their doorbell camera that showed the victim.

“You can actually see the victim walking up to the house to deliver food, but the video cuts off at that point,” Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco explained at a press conference.

In the footage for the next day, 30-year-old Oscar Solis was seen taking out multiple bags of trash. When the outdoor trash bin was searched by detectives, they discovered the dismembered remains of the victim. Inside the home, the victim’s car keys and wedding ring were found.

Solis was immediately arrested and charged with felony murder in conjunction with robbery. The suspect, who was recently released on parole, has a history of being affiliated with the MS-13 gang and had previously served four years in prison for burglary and assault.

“This was a horrific crime of passion,” Sheriff Nocco said. “This was demonic. What he did was demonic.”
