Suspected serial killer Willy Suarez Maceo investigated fears that a real estate agent was behind a series of shootings
A FLORIDA real estate agent is under investigation as a potential serial killer over police fears he is behind a series of shootings in the state.
Miami Police allege 25-year-old Willy Suarez Maceo was responsible for the deaths of two people in Florida in October.
Acting Police Chief Manuel Morales, who was joined by Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, announced the arrest of the suspected serial killer at a press conference Thursday night.
Miami Police say Maceo was responsible for the shooting of two people on December 21, resulting in the death of one in Wynwood.
Police believe he was responsible for another murder on October 16.
In this case, a homeless victim was horribly murdered on Miami Avenue and 1 Street.
According to Morales, police began making the connection on December 21 when a witness reported to an officer a person with blunt head trauma.
Further investigation revealed that the victim suffered from a gunshot wound and was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in extremely critical condition.
Nearly two hours later, another victim was found dead from a gunshot wound near Miami Avenue and 21 Street in Miami.
The police chief said detectives linked the two incidents due to the short time frame and the two victims being homeless.
Authorities recovered video that captured a black vehicle driving up to one of the victims, who was lying on the ground and shot him repeatedly.
Officers were able to determine the vehicle type and tag number from surveillance video.
Police were able to locate the vehicle and the suspect, who was in possession of a firearm that matched the caliber used in both crimes.
Maceo will be charged with murder and attempted murder for the crimes committed on December 21.

According to his Century 21 profile, Maceo says that as a sales agent it is his “passion to help individuals and their families achieve their goals.”
On his real estate agent profile, the 25-year-old has listed several homes for sale in the Homestead and Miami area.
His Instagram biography indicates that he is interested in “real estate, the stock market and cryptocurrency and the management of stocks and assets.”
On Twitter, the alleged killer notes: “Let’s trade for money.”
