Lily's back tattoo

A private investigator (Joe Carrillo) volunteering to help in Lily’s case had developed a theory that Lily lost her life the night she disappeared. He's met with Miami Dade Detectives providing details of the location as well as suspects (one even served time for murder!)

Some basic background info about Lilly's case:

  • Lilly was reported missing by her ex-boyfriend Christen Pacheco on 6/2/07 at 2am - 24 hours after her disappearance
  • Christen stated that Lily may have gone to "pick flowers". Keep in mind it was 2am when she walked out of his condo. According to him, Lily left wearing pajamas, no shoes on and she left her cellphone behind but took "bungee cords"...
  • Miami Dade Police took the missing person report but failed to follow up those crucial "first 48" hours
  • Christen's Cadillac SUV disappeared soon after Lilly (it was totalled in a car accident in route to New York)
  • A few weeks following Lily's disappearance, 'he "remembered" that Lily had tried to hang herself in his apartment but he came in and saved her'
  • The MDPD assigned a detective to her case who was on vacation - her case file was filed away on some one's desk and it took months before the detective wrote up the missing person flyer and took more than 6 months to speak to the boyfriend.
  • Miami Dade Police refused our request to issue a press release
  • June 2008 - an anonymous tip came in said they believed Lilly's body was in an abandoned property in Homestead, FL. Police took more than a month to search it. I had managed to get 2 SAR Teams to volunteer to search, bub MDPD didn't allow it. They finally did the search but according to them, they found no signs of Lilly there. 
  • Lilly's case has been discussed on various internet radio shows and Clint Van Zandt, as well as all the experts have expressed the same opinion, the police should have seen huge red flags go up as soon as "bungee cords" were mentioned. MDPD should have investigated this case immediately.

Lily is a very caring and loving, beautiful girl, and she had a past. I just want everyone to look past that and bring her home.
