Friends mourn woman found dead inside burning car in Broward

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Family members and friends gathered in Hollywood on Tuesday night to honor and remember a loved one.

A candlelight vigil was held for 25-year-old Jasmine Guillaume, who was found dead inside a burning car over the weekend.

Firefighters found Guillaume at about 7 a.m. on Sunday. The car was parked in an alley behind Speedy Distribution at 2342 Thomas St.

The Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office took the evidence from the crime scene.

Detectives have yet to officially release the identity of the victim, but at the crime scene on Tuesday there were teddy bears, flowers, and balloons from friends and relatives of Guillaume, who told Local 10 News that she recently found out she was pregnant with her first child.

An area resident said first there was a loud boom. When she looked outside to investigate, she said she saw a woman running, and then the vehicle fully engulfed in flames. Guillaume’s friends suspect her killer is a man who is armed and dangerous.

Officer Christian Lata, a spokesman for the Hollywood Police Department, received the tips from Guillaume’s friends. Officers are asking anyone with information about the case to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
