Rene "Rosita" Hidalgo Hernandez was found gagged with multiple stab wounds and a slit neck March 15 in Miami. On November 19, according to The Miami Herald, police arrested Miguel Pavon, who has been charged with first-degree murder. Police told reporters that DNA evidence found on a used condom, sock, and underwear found near Hidalgo Hernandez's body matched a sample Pavon had given police when they were investigating the murder of a sex worker in 2011.
