The story sounds like something out of a mob movie.
"It just did not make sense whatsoever," said Miami Gardens Detective Luis Gonzalez.
Emergency crews responded to a car fire in the middle of an empty field in May 2009 and found the body of a man shot in the head, burning in the back seat.
"The vehicle and the body were totally charred," said Gonzalez.
According to police, the victim wasn't a drug dealer, or a gangster, or even a wealthy man. In fact, Raul Munera seemed to be the opposite of all that.
"He was working as a taxicab driver, very simple man, very nice man," said Gonzalez.
In fact, on the night of his killing, he was working, transporting people to and from the airport. No one can explain how he got to an empty field near 167th street and Northwest 24th Avenue in Miami Gardens.
Local 10's Sasha Andrade spoke with the victim's brother Genaro Munera. In Spanish, he told her the killing has been difficult for the family. He said Raul Munera loved his young daughter above everything.
"We need to make justice for this man," said Gonzalez.
According to police, the fire destroyed all the evidence, and so three years after the killing, he needs the public's help to solve this very gruesome cold case.
"Someone must've seen something," said Gonzalez.
