Three Florida truckers were kidnapped, tied up and tortured for hours over the weekend before being shot execution style leaving two of them dead, in Opa-locka.
Law enforcement in Miami Dade found Osmar Oliva, 50, and Johan Gonzalez Quesada, 26, dead on Saturday night. A third man, who has not been named, is in a critical condition at Ryder Trauma Center.
Police are now hunting the masked killers after they shot their victims one by one while in the back of a moving truck, reports the Miami Herald.
Police in Opa-locka, Florida are now hunting the masked killers who dumped the three men in the yard of a home on Saturday night.
Law enforcement sources said masked assailants kidnapped the trio and tortured them for hours prior to the shootings.
Each victim was shot in the head, including the man who survived and managed to get help from a passerby who then called cops.
Father-of-three Osmar Oliva owned Oliva Delivery Corp. His widow said: ‘He was very good person. I don’t know why this happened to him.’
The second fatality, 26-year-old Johan Gonzalez Quesada, became a dad for the second time just 10 days earlier.
Lamenting the loss, his dad Ovidio Gonzalez Roche described his son as ‘a marvelous person. He had huge heart. Very family oriented. This is such an extraordinary shock. I can’t explain what’s happened.’
Two of the three men were dumped by the side of the road in Opa-locka on Saturday night – Oliva and Gonzalez Quesada – had previously been arrested over cargo theft.
In 2007, Oliva was busted when police said he was one of three men spotted unloading cargo from a stolen tractor-trailer, but prosecutors later dropped the charge.
Gonzales Quesada, was arrested in 2019 after two loads of stolen cargo, including frozen shrimp and air conditioners, were found at his home.
He pled not guilty in the case and was awaiting trial.
No arrests had been made as of early Tuesday.
Detectives are looking for three “unknown” male suspects in the triple shooting, police said, adding that the investigation is still in it’s early stages, witnesses still needed to be interviewed.
It’s unclear if the victims’ families were cooperating with detectives, Welch said
A reward of $5,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
