A Porsche-loving, crypto-enthusiast real estate agent has been denied a bond after being accused of committing a grisly and unprovoked murder of homeless men in Miami. .
Willy Suarez Maceo, 25, was arrested and placed in the Miami-Dade prison system at 2:28 a.m. Friday on murder charges.
Miami Interim Police Chief Manuel Morales said Maceo allegedly drove up to a homeless man near downtown Miami on Tuesday night and shot him in the head. The unidentified man miraculously survived.
However, about two hours later, he allegedly pulled over in his black Dodge Charger next to another homeless man sleeping on the sidewalk and opened fire, Morales said. That victim, Jerome Antonio Price, 56, died.
Morales said an eagle-eyed detective saw Maceo’s license plate number in surveillance footage from both shootings, prompting detectives to track him down the next day.
When Maceo was arrested in Kendall on Wednesday, officers are said to have found a 9mm Glock gun in his vehicle and with a bullet casing on him. Ballistic tests linked the weapon to two shootings, an arrest report obtained by Miami Herald speak.
Miami police believe Maceo may be behind the October 16 murder of another homeless man, Manuel Perez, 59, in downtown Miami. However, he has yet to be charged for that crime.
A “wanted” poster shared by police at the time showed surveillance footage of the suspect, who matched Maceo’s appearance and the suspect’s vehicle, a black Dodge Charger.
“There may be other victims at the hands of this ruthless criminal,” Morales said, calling Maceo a “suspected serial killer.”
Maceo, who is listed as a licensed real estate agent for the 21st Century, has “became myth” on social media, where he flaunts a flashy lifestyle with fast cars, crypto investments and luxury home sales.
Earlier this year, he posted footage from a Bitcoin conference in Miami as well as a photo of himself next to a Porsche at the Crypto Fintech Conference.
He describes himself on his Facebook as a “Life Development Leader” and a “Brand Owner/CEO”.
Maceo was ordered to be held without bond Friday afternoon with Circle Judge Alberto Milian citing his “special pattern” of targeting homeless people in “yes” attacks. looks like an execution.”
Ron Book, president of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust, said the horrific string of attacks “cut into the hearts of our community.”
“No one should be a victim of gun violence let alone our most vulnerable people who are experiencing homelessness,” he said in a statement. CBS Miami.
