    Nicole Montalvo (35) was found murdered and dismembered days after she went missing-her estranged husband has been arrested

    https://www.mynews13.com/fl/orlando/...icole-montalvo

    The Osceola County Sheriff's Office is looking for a woman last seen in St. Cloud, and her disappearance is being called suspicious.

    Nicole Montalvo was last seen Monday evening. Deputies say she was dropping off her 8-year-old son with his father and grandparents on Hixon Avenue in St. Cloud.

    Deputies said Montalvo was supposed to pick up her son Tuesday from Harmony School, but she never showed up.

    On Thursday evening, investigators began searching a five-acre property on Hixon Avenue they say is related to Montalvo. They also said they found her gold 1999 Honda, which was abandoned, on Big Sky Boulevard off Neptune Road.

    Her estranged husband, Christopher Otero-Rivera, is under probation and house arrest, according to deputies. They say he is not a suspect or person of interest at this time, but he's not cooperating with them, either.

    Deputies also said Otero-Rivera has also had domestic violence issues with Montalvo in the past.

    Montalvo was last seen wearing blue jeans and a gray shirt. Deputies said her cell phone has been turned off.

    If you know anything about Montalvo, you're asked to call the Osceola County Sheriff's Office immediately at 407-348-2222.

    The estranged husband of missing Osceola woman Nicole Montalvo has been named a person of interest in her disappearance, according to the Osceola County Sheriff's Offce.

    Christopher Otero-Rivera's father has also been named a person of interest. They both have been arrested on unrelated charges.

    Possible human remains were found Friday in a search on a St. Cloud property for clues into the missing-persons case of Montalvo, who was last seen there Monday dropping off her 8-year-old son.

    Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said investigators "uncovered the possible remains of a human being" on the 5-acre property, where they began digging Thursday evening. He said the remains were found in the back of the property on Hixon Avenue in St. Cloud.

    The Medical Examiner's Office also was called to the scene.

    I don’t even want to know how gross the remains were that they couldn’t tell if they were human or not.

    We are having a heat wave down here right now. Heat indexes are about where they usually are in July and August. Plus we've had a ton of rain, so I could see that any remains would decompose super fast right now. It feels like a jungle outside.

    Investigators have confirmed Otero-Rivera has a history of domestic violence against Montalvo.

    Otero-Rivera is scheduled to face a judge Monday. He remains at the Osceola County Jail.

    Authorities brought Rivera to the hospital after his arrest, when he complained of shortness of breath, according to Osceola County Sheriff’s Lt. Justin Boutilier. Rivera’s first appearance in court is scheduled for Monday, but is dependent on his release from the hospital.

    Osceola and Orange County deputies have begun to search a second location for a missing St. Cloud woman.

    Deputies said the new location is about a block away from the property where Nicole Montalvo was last seen.

    Osceola deputies said Friday evening that an estranged husband of Montalvo and his father have been named persons of interest in her disappearance.
    Content Continues Below

    Deputies said Montalvo's estranged husband, Christopher Otero-Rivera, and his father, Angel Luis Rivera, have been arrested on charges unrelated to Montalvo's disappearance.

    Maj. Jacob Ruiz, of the Osceola County Sheriff's Office, said Otero-Rivera was arrested for violation of probation and violation of domestic injunction, and his father, Rivera, was arrested on violations of condition of a registered felon.

    They were both transported to the Osceola County Jail.

    Otero-Rivera went before a judge Saturday morning but was told to come back Sunday because a warrant for his arrest was not available.

    On Sunday, the judge issued a $25,000 bail for violation of domestic injunction and no bail for violation of probation. Rivera did not appear before a judge because he is in a hospital for chest pains and shortness of breath.

    Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said Friday afternoon that possible human remains have been found on a five-acre property where Montalvo was last seen.

    The remains were discovered along Hixon Avenue near Deer Run and Canoe Creek roads, not far from St. Cloud, Gibson said.

    Investigators said they are unsure if the remains are those of a man or a woman.
    Investigators had searched the property -- including a construction shed, recreational vehicle and trailers -- for Montalvo or evidence relating to her disappearance.

    "There's a wooded area and a pond in that property, and so we are going to comb the entire property," Ruiz said.

    On Sunday, deputies said they have searched 50% of the property for Montalvo. Deputies said they began draining a large pond on the property Saturday and continue to drain it Sunday.

    The human remains recovered from the yard of a St. Cloud home are of Nicole Montalvo, who had stopped by there Monday night to drop off her son and hadn't been seen since, the Osceola County Sheriff said Sunday.

    The investigation into the disappearance of Montalvo now has turned from a missing person's case to a murder investigation, Sheriff Russ Gibson said during a brief news conference.

    Deputies and investigators are searching a second potential scene on Henry J Avenue in St. Cloud, Gibson said. They've obtained a search warrant for that location.

    As the tight-knit community of Osceola County, Florida mourns last week’s brutal murder of Nicole Montalvo, Sheriff Russ Gibson is left wondering if and how the justice system failed the young mother and longtime victim of domestic violence.

    The state of the body, he said, is in one of the worst conditions he has ever seen and the cause of death is still yet to be determined.

    “I’m so angry what these people have done to this sweet woman, at a time in her life when she felt as though she had finally broken free (from the relationship) and was so happy to have made her first month’s rent,” Gibson told Fox News in an exclusive interview on the case. “Many times, victims of domestic violence don’t know how to break free, but she was out there on her own getting it done. Now she is dead.”

    The 33-year-old, a smiling employee at Broadway Pizza Bar in downtown Kissimmee, was reported missing last Wednesday after having dropped their 8-year-old son Elijah off at his father's home in St. Cloud on Monday, but did not return to collect him. Investigators discovered human remains at a property belonging to Montalvo’s in-laws on Friday; authorities confirmed the identity of the remains as Montalvo two days later.

    Montalvo’s estranged husband and the father of their son, Christopher Otero-Rivera, 31, and his father Angel Luis Rivera, 63, were arrested that same day on unrelated charges. After the grim confirmation on Sunday, the men were charged with premeditated murder and are currently being held at the Osceola County Jail without bond.

    According to Gibson, the remains – which are still being examined by the coroner – were "disassembled", and the situation so far marks the worst he has seen in his 32 years as a homicide detective and sheriff.

    “When this autopsy is done, people are going to be horrified,” he continued, noting that autopsy results are expected next week.

    But this was hardly the first allegedly savage encounter Montalvo had faced at the hands of Otero-Rivera, with whom she had filed for divorce. According to court filings, Montalvo sought the help of law enforcement on numerous occasions, and incidences of violence had escalated over several years.

    She is said to have first filed for a restraining order in June 2016, alleging that her husband attacked their son, who was 5 years old at the time.

    Photos of Montalvo sporting bruises and a neck brace were also included in court petitions, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The paper also reported that Montalvo had indicated in filings that Otero-Rivera had previously been involuntarily committed to hospital under the state’s Baker’s Act, which allows a 72-hold for those believed to be a danger to themselves or others.

    Yet the worst incident came in October 2018. Montalvo told law enforcement that Otero-Rivera texted her about an urgent breakdown with his truck and that he needed a ride. However, he then led her to a barren area where another car with an awaiting female – identified as Toni Rocker and known to Montalvo – pulled up.

    Montalvo was subsequently dragged from her vehicle and thrown to the ground. After her husband purportedly stuffed a cloth in her mouth and attempted to break her neck, Rocker was accused of holding a knife to her throat and threatening to kill her if she told anyone about the attack.

    The pair were arrested.

    Rocker, 31, went to trial on charges of kidnapping, robbery, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but was acquitted by a jury in April. According to Gibson, she is not a suspect in Montalvo’s murder and has cooperated with investigators.

    Meanwhile, Otero-Rivera pled no contest to hindering a witness’s ability to communicate with law enforcement, unlawful possession of a credit or debit card, and battery. The more serious charges of kidnapping, robbery, and aggravated assault were dropped in the agreement.

    After serving just eight months behind bars, he was released on two years of probation – which included wearing an ankle bracelet for monitoring.

    Moreover, Otero-Rivera was banned from communicating with Montalvo except for in a parenting cellphone application but has since been charged with violating a no-contact order after admitting to calling her. His father, a convicted felon, was initially apprehended Friday on charges of unlawful weapons and ammunition possession.

    “This is a person who already tried to snap Nicole’s neck, and he took this plea deal,” Gibson lamented. “Domestic violence should not be a misdemeanor; they should be a felony. If weapons are used, they can be enhanced to a felony. But anything domestic violence-related should be moved to a felony.”

    The mother-in-law of a murdered woman, whose dismembered body was found on two properties owned by her estranged husband, has been arrested.

    Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson held a press conference Friday, confirming to reporters that Wanda Nereida Rivera, 59, faces charges of tampering with evidence and providing false statements during the commission of a felony crime in connection with the death of 33-year-old Nicole Montalvo.

    Gibson said Rivera was “emotional” after her arrest and was not cooperating with authorities, according to Fox News.

    Rivera’s arrest comes less than a week after her son, Montalvo’s estranged husband Christopher Otero-Rivera, 31, and 61-year-old Angel Luis Rivera, the estranged husband’s father, were charged with premeditated murder.

    Another of Rivera’s sons, Nicholas Rivera, 28, was arrested on Friday on 8 counts of child pornography and is now considered an additional “person of interest” in Montalvo’s murder, Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson said at a press conference Monday.

    “We once spoke with him, and we were able to obtain his cellphone, and that’s how we got the information for the current charges of the child pornography,” Gibson said.

    Montalvo’s body was recovered on October 25 from a St. Cloud property where Rivera and the two men were living.

    That land had been searched two days earlier, with police finding no sign of Montalvo.

    The estranged husband of a slain Osceola County woman faced a judge Tuesday after sheriff’s officials filed a new charge against him.

    The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office has charged Christopher Otero-Rivera with failing to report the death of Nicole Montalvo.

    Deputies say Otero-Rivera killed Montalvo, 32, in October and buried her remains at his family’s home.


    Formal murder charges against Otero-Rivera, however, have not been filed. He remains jailed for violating probation.

    Deputies have not released any other details about the new charge.

    Otero-Rivera appeared before a judge on the latest charge. During that hearing, a judge set his bond at $3,000.

    Later on Tuesday, Otero-Rivera appeared before a different judge regarding his violation of probation charge.

    Migdalia Perez, Otero-Rivera’s attorney, argued what her client said to police at one point during the investigation should not be allowed because he was forced to cooperate with investigators as part of his probation.

    “The probation officer can search your home, speak to you, get certain statements, but it doesn’t completely foreclose all your constitutional rights and that’s what we’re arguing,” Perez said.

    The trial for Otero-Rivera’s violation of probation charges is set for January 21.

    Hundreds of files detailing evidence in the case of slain St. Cloud mother Nicole Montalvo were released Wednesday, including crime scene photos showing the locations where her dismembered body was found.

    Jail house phone calls, interviews with witnesses in the case and screenshots of text messages Montalvo sent before her death, which News 6 previously published, were all provided to the media.

    Although Montalvo’s estranged husband, Christopher Otero-Rivera, and his father, Angel Rivera, have been arrested in connection with the case, neither is facing murder charges.

    It’s been months since Montalvo’s remains were found on a property owned by the Rivera family days after she was reported missing, but the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office has not yet said how she died and the files released Wednesday don’t provide clarity on the matter, either.

    A day before the evidence cache was released, State Attorney Aramis Ayala sent a letter to the governor saying Osceola County Sheriff Russ Gibson jeopardized the investigation into the death of Montalvo and slandered her name to bolster his re-election campaign.

    Records show that deputies took hundreds of photographs inside the home, in the garage, in a shed and across the 5-acre property.

    Evidence markers were placed in several areas and a burn pit where bone fragments and body parts were found, among other things.

    Guns, gardening tools, heavy machinery, bullets, baseball bats and kitchen knives were all photographed.

    Authorities have not identified a murder weapon but the pictures show that evidence of blood was found in a garage and in a hallway.

    According to records, Nicholas Rivera said he heard the family arguing with Montalvo and a few minutes later, he saw Montalvo lying motionless in the garage with blood coming from her neck.

    Nicholas Rivera said his mother told him to leave but hours later, he saw Angel Rivera washing off an orange pushcart, which also tested positive for blood, according to the report.

    Analysts noted in their report that they were able to compare Montalvo’s buccal swabs to the blood found on the garage floor to determine that it was not her blood or Otero-Rivera’s, but Angel Rivera could not be ruled out as a contributor.

    Blood found on the laundry room floor is believed to be from four people, records show. In that case, Montalvo, Otero-Rivera and Angel Rivera could not be ruled out as contributors.

    Deputies found a burn pit on the property and removed fabric, what appears to be a metal hoop, buttons and other items from it to be collected as evidence.

    GPS animations

    Deputies said in December 2019 that GPS data from Otero-Rivera’s ankle monitor pinged him in the area where Montalvo’s remains were found. On Wednesday, prosecutors released animations based on that evidence that show Otero-Rivera’s comings and goings.

    Indictment have been filed in the felony murder, abuse of a body and tampering evidence charges against Christopher Otero-Rivera and Angel Rivera, the estranged husband and father-in-law of Nicole Montalvo who Osceola County Sheriff’s detectives charged in her October 2019 murder.
    Gov. Ron DeSantis has already taken the case from Ninth District State Attorney Aramis Ayala, and assigned it to the Fifth District’s Brad King.

    Newly filed documents provide a look at why an Osceola County man accused of murder allegedly killed his estranged wife.

    Court hearings in the Nicole Montalvo murder case have been on hold because of the coronavirus outbreak, but prosecutors and defense attorneys for the accused killer, Montalvo’s estranged husband, Christopher Otero-Rivera have still been filing motions.
    Advertisement

    On Friday, the state asked to have Otero-Rivera’s case consolidated with that, of his father, Angel Rivera, who’s accused of helping his son dismember, and hide Montalvo’s body.

    In their motion prosecutors lay out why they believe the Rivera’s did it, writing “both desired custody of Nicole Montalvo’s son, and that this desire for custody acted as motive for each to commit the crimes with which they are accused.”

    Because clearly, growing up to learn that your father and grandfather murdered and dismembered your mother is in the best interests of that poor child.

    What a despicable family.

    During a virtual hearing Tuesday morning, the former husband and father-in-law of slain St. Cloud mother Nicole Montalvo had their trial scheduled for the week of July 13.

    Christopher Otero-Rivera, Montalvo’s estranged husband, and his father Angel Rivera, appeared Tuesday, and the state is consolidating their cases and they will be tried together if the Ninth District Court allows. They are charged with second-degree murder, abuse of a dead human body and tampering with evidence.

    In addition, the state has filed new discovery documents against Wanda Rivera, Angel’s wife, and faces charges of with giving false information to law enforcement and tampering with evidence.

    Trial started Monday.

    https://www.mynews13.com/fl/orlando/...talvo-s-murder

    Jury Selection Starts in Case of Nicole Montalvo's Murder

    Courts were shut down last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, delaying this case and many others.

    The setup was changed to follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines. For example, clear masks were given to potential jurors so that attorneys could see full facial reactions and expressions. Green arrows helped with social distancing, and only 24 potential jurors were allowed in the courtroom at a time.

    Christopher Otero-Rivera and his father, Angel Rivera, are accused of murdering Montalvo. Attorney questions centered around potential jurors’ knowledge of the case from the news and social media. Migdalia Perez, Christopher Otero-Rivera's lawyer, asked one potential juror, “I know you’ve heard a lot about this case. You hesitated about whether you can put it aside and then said, “Yeah, I can… Can you really, really do that?”

    Montalvo, who was 33 years old at the time of her death, is the mother of Otero-Rivera’s son.

    She disappeared October 21, 2019 after dropping off their son at the Rivera home.

    Her remains were later found on the property. Montalvo was in the process of divorcing Otero-Rivera.

    People who want to watch this trial are not allowed inside the courtroom because of safety concerns about COVID-19, but a video feed is set up in the next courtroom, where they can watch. Potential jurors were told that the trial would last until April 21.

    The family chose not to be in the courtroom to allow more space for potential jurors, they said. They will, however, start attending once opening statements on both sides begin.

    On a social media post, Nicole’s sister, Christina Montalvo, wrote in part:

    “We know this will be the hardest few weeks in our lives to come, and we will strive and overcome this together as a family, but we’re doing this with all of the willpower and strength we have in us stemming from the love and passion you have shown us throughout your life when you were here.”

    Jury selection is scheduled to resume at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

    Nicole Montalvo’s estranged husband, father-in-law found guilty in her murder

    Jurors quickly returned a guilty verdict on Wednesday in the murder trial of Christopher Otero-Rivera and Angel Rivera, who were charged with killing Osceola County mother Nicole Montalvo in 2019.

    Christopher Otero-Rivera and his father Angel Rivera were found guilty on all charges in Nicole Montalvo’s murder. They had been charged with second-degree murder, tampering with evidence and abuse of a human body.
    Advertisement

    The verdict was reached after only about an hour and a half of deliberation. Prosecutors said they plan to seek a life sentence for both men.

    Montalvo was last seen alive dropping off her son at the Rivera's family property in St. Cloud.

    One crime scene technician testified that she saw tire tracks in the yard and followed them back to a trailer that was covered in debris.

    When they moved the debris out of the way they allegedly found what looked like human flesh.

    "Immediately upon discovering flesh, the fleshy material, a foul odor was present. A very strong odor, and in addition to that, flies began coming to the area," said Emily Seda, an Osceola County Sheriff's Office forensics investigator.

    Eventually investigators said they found many more samples and a detective took them to a private lab in Deerfield Beach, along with samples from Montalvo's parents. Investigators said they had a match.

    Soon after, the sheriff's office said it heard from a man who lives down the street. That man told investigators he saw people digging with an excavator at a property around the corner.

    "The excavator was being operated by one person and there were other people standing around the, whatever, it seemed to be a hole," neighbor John Hall Jr. said.

    Neither Christopher Otero-Rivera or Angel Rivera took the stand during the trial. The defense for Christopher Otero-Rivera essentially put the blame for Montalvo's murder on Angel Rivera, saying all the evidence pointed to him.

    During the trial, Otero-Rivera's mother and Angel Rivera's wife, Wanda Rivera took the stand. She testified that she was on good terms with Montalvo, who often left her son with the family.

    "Did you exchange text messages often?" Wanda Rivera was asked. "Would you say she even confided in you?"

    "Yes," Wanda Rivera said.

    Wanda Rivera said she found out from the news that Montalvo's dismembered remains were buried on her property and doesn’t know how they got there.

    The brother of Christopher-Otero Rivera and son of Angel Rivera also testified.

    He had been expected to be an important witness because early in the investigation, Nicholas Rivera told detectives he saw his brother and father standing around Nicole Montalvo in a pool of blood in the garage.

    However, on the stand, he said he didn’t remember going home from work at that time.

    Prosecutors eventually got him to testify that he did wake up late at night and saw his dad, outside the day Montalvo disappeared.

    Angel Rivera, man convicted of murdering daughter-in-law, has died in prison

    Angel Rivera, the Osceola County man convicted of murdering daughter-in-law Nicole Montalvo, has died in prison, officials told WESH 2 News on Thursday.

    Records show he died Wednesday, less than a month after arriving at the prison.

    He was booked at the Central Florida Reception Center. It's usually a stop, before an inmate is sent to a permanent facility, to serve out their sentence. But as the Department of Corrections website shows, Rivera did not last long.

    Frank Bankowitz was Rivera’s lawyer, during the murder trial, in which both Rivera, and his son, Christopher Otero-Rivera were found guilty of killing Montalvo, and scattering her remains around their St. Cloud property.

    The Department of Corrections will not comment on how Rivera died.

    Bankowitz says, he would not be surprised, if COVID-19 is ultimately to blame.

    "The COVID situation is bad, especially for prisoners. Locally I have had up to 3 hearings a week cancelled because you go to court and you get a report that your client is in quarantine," Bankowitz says.

    The medical examiner in Orlando is working to confirm the cause of death.

    Convicted killer Angel Rivera dies in prison from COVID complications, family says
    Rivera sentenced in July to life in prison for murder of Nicole Montalvo


    OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. ? One of two men sentenced to life in prison for the murder of mother Nicole Montalvo has died in prison due to complications from COVID-19, according to his family.

    Prison records confirm Angel Rivera is deceased.

    Rivera, the father of Christopher Otero-Rivera, died two months after being sentenced for the October 2019 murder of his son?s estranged wife. Rivera?s family told News 6 he died Wednesday of COVID-19 complications.

    The father and son were found guilty of second-degree murder, abuse of a body and tampering with physical evidence in the death of Montalvo, 33.

    The judge sentenced the two to life in prison for second-degree murder and for the two other counts, the two were given sentences of 15 years and 5 years. Before delivering the sentence, the judge said he could not ?ignore the brutality? and the pain the murder brought to the family as they searched for Montalvo in 2019.
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.
