'Celebration of Life' held for Miya Marcano

Loved ones of Miya Marcano said their final goodbyes to the 19-year-old.  A Celebration of Life was held for the Valencia College student on Wednesday night in South Florida.

Law enforcement maintains they only had one person of interest in the case: a maintenance worker at the Arden Villas apartment complex who had reportedly used a key FOB to access her room the same day she went missing. 

Last week, the family of Miya released a recording of a confrontation with Armando Caballero, the prime suspect in her murder. Caballero denied he was a stalker after one of Miya’s relatives said there was evidence of his obsession with the 19-year-old.
