Miami-Dade to identify woman’s body found in small wooded area in northwest Miami-Dade, police say

Authorities found a woman’s body on Wednesday afternoon in a desolated small wooded area, south of the Ronald Reagan Turnpike and east of Red Road in northwest Miami-Dade County.

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Authorities found a woman’s body Wednesday afternoon in a desolated small wooded area, south of the Ronald Reagan Turnpike and east of Red Road in northwest Miami-Dade County.

Detectives from the Broward Sheriff’s Office and the Miami-Dade Police Department responded to the lot neighboring rows of mobile homes near the intersection of Northwest 204th Street and 55th Court.

Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for BSO, announced the finding of the body, but without Miami-Dade County’s identification of the body, she could not say if it was that of Mimose “Mimi” Dulcio.

Both BSO and MDPD helicopters were involved in the search of Dulcio, 39, an administrative assistant from the city of Fort Lauderdale, who vanished on Nov. 10 from Broward County.

Gerdy St. Louis, another spokeswoman for BSO, said detectives believed Dulcio’s husband had killed her and used their white 2018 Dodge Charger to remove her body from their home to “dispose of it.”

Jose Luis Pacheco was at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on Wednesday awaiting his transfer to Broward County. He is facing a second-degree murder charge.

Local 10 News’ Bridgette Matter spoke to Dulcio’s sister.

“I’m going to miss everything about her,” said Seminta Dulcio. “That was my bestie.”

She opened up about her sister’s pending divorce to Pacheco. She said it was a tough split and Dulcio was scared, looking to the courts for protection.

“She was afraid for her life because no one goes to do an emergency restraining order if they felt like they were safe,” said Seminta Dulcio.

Before that filing could be made, Dulcio disappeared last week.

Detectives were asking anyone with information about the case to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477 or Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.
