Boca Raton officers found David Gonzalez, a driver for a delivery provider, on the scene. Gonzalez said that he and his co-worker, Jorge Luis Dupre Lachazo, delivered a washer and dryer to the victim’s home for Best Buy. At one point during the visit, Gonzalez went outside to make phone calls to the office. Lachazo remained inside of the home to speak with the victim about the new appliances. After hearing screams from the house, Gonzalez entered the home and saw blood and the victim on the floor.
Gonzalez went outside and called 911. Lachazo got into the delivery truck and drove away. A responding Boca Raton police officer saw the truck leaving the neighborhood and stopped it.
During an interview, Lachazo admitted that he struck the victim and doused her with a liquid chemical (acetone). (He said the chemical spontaneously combusted.)
Lachazo admitted to using cocaine and marijuana earlier in the day.
