Lily's case has been cold for a long time. It's been a long, agonizing 3 and a half years since the night of June 1, 2007. But finally we have a news update to share. If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you may have noticed that I have had my issues with law enforcement, mainly with Detective Mancha's handling of Lily's case. Out of desperation, we tried (almost) everything including a week long hunger strike in order to attain police attention and coverage from local media. Nothing worked. In the process, I've made my share of mistakes.
The good news is, to our relief, the investigation into Lily's disappearance has been reopened and reassigned to a new detective. Detective Ray Hoadley from Miami Dade Police Criminal Investigations Division Homicide Bureau is now lead detective. Lily's family, Private Investigator Joe Carrillo and I have all met with the him. We are working closely together. I'm hopeful as never before. And I have absolute faith in Detective Hoadley. He's got over 20 years of experience under his belt and has investigated many difficult cases. He's very effective at what he does. Det. Hoadley is working daily to find the answers which will bring about a resolution to this case.
